Repair disk won't load

Hello again- I believe something is seriously wrong with my computer. My windows 7 disk won't boot up for repair. It's stuck at the loading screen for hours until i get impatient and shut it off.

any possible causes for the repair disk to not load?

I think the disk is fine- other disks such as linux live CD's won't fully load either. The loading bar for the windows repair goes about 1/10 of the way before stopping. Disks appear to be read just fine from within windows.

I'm not too sure what else I could say.

Make sure you select boot from CD first, and not from HDD

Do you have a 2nd monitor or TV connected ? Any excess USB peripherials ?

Would you prefer if I made a youtube video to show you how it's booting?

If it won't boot anything, including linux live, you could try cleaning the optical drive. If you can boot off the usb, this again would point to the drive. I guess memory could be an issue as well.

How do you clean the optical drive, that's the issue?

Sys Repair Disc does not load repair tools - just background
I'm trying to fix my brother's friend's laptop - my suspicion is he dropped it - the hard disc is almost certainly where the problem is. That said, I hooked it up to my desktop and it's "usable" in the sense that I can access the repair tools via my W7 OEM disc to try and run utilities on it....
