You don't list any specs for your laptop. Did you run the Windows Advisor before you tried installation? Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

thx for ur respond.
no I didn't and I can't since I don't have windows to do it with.
I have tried before to install windows xp on the machine it won't give me also.
after the first loading (the blue screen with all the first drivers to start the setup)
it will make me the same problem..black screen and I can't do anything=\
so I thought maybe to install win 7 home, but again the same problem.
what do u think?

Where did you get WIn7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? If so confirm the ISO integrity or download another, burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

If this fails, write ISO to flash stick using Universal USB Installer
with WIn7 in dropdown menu. Boot under USB, Removable or HD's.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals. Reset the BIOS to optimal defaults. Change any SATA controller in BIOS to AHCI mode to try install.

Next try wiping the HD to clear the boot sector: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Test your HD with maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan which can also wipe the HD afterwards.

Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install. Test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+. Swap sticks.

What are the specs on your laptop? That could well be the problem.
