problem in formatting laptop

I have met some problem when formatting my laptop
when the formatting process reaches the complete installation of windows 7 part,it suddenly says that the windows cannot configure one or more system components n ask me to restart the installation for windows 7.I kept trying for many times but the result is still the same.So,i would like to ask is there any ways to solve this problem??
Any advice would be appreciated.:)

Follow these steps to clean reinstall Win7: Reinstalling Windows 7.

Unplug all other HDs and peripherals.

If install still fails, try wiping the HD first: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Sometimes when devices fail to load drivers during final phase of install, you can use this method to enter Device Manager to uninstall any drivers in error (with ! mark) so that install will complete, then update the driver from desktop.
