what the hell's these ! )
1 - it started to read the DVD in the windows randomly , now it reads , previous time it didn't read , and maybe next time will not read!
2 - windows recovery : the windows recovery tools version is not compatible with the windows which is installed

P.S : in this installation I only formatted C: , not reserved partition

Right, this really is my last post of the night.

If you are now saying you formatted your C drive and you don't have Windows on another drive then you may as well reinstall Windows.

If you go for a clean install you can do it withoout touching the logical partition that has your data on it.

Clean Install Windows 7

Good night.

What were you trying to do with Partition Wizard? From your Disk Management screenshot, it seems you have five(!) primary partitions plus a logical volume in an extended partition stuck between them - both of which should be impossible.

But I have a feeling the two rightmost primary partitions are actually inside the extended partitions as well but somehow ended up being misidentified by Windows.

I don't know how this would affect your ability to read DVDs, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was exactly why.

I feel I need to sent it to guarantee service and after that I become friends with fdisk again

If you want to reinstall fresh, no need to send the harddisk in. Follow the link seavixen32 gave you for a clean install, and use diskpart from the command prompt (while booted to your Windows setup DVD) to wipe out the (suspected) corrupt partition table.
