Windows 7: Clean Wipe & Install Errors..

Clean Wipe & Install Errors..

Hey there, basically my problem is that I want to wipe my computer clean, and have a fresh install of Windows 7.
I have the discs that came with my computer.
But here is the problem, when I boot my PC up with my CD Drive running first with the first installation CD, the computer says: "CD-ROM Boot Priority" and counts down for a couple seconds then says "CD-ROM Boot Priority .. Boot Ready" But then doesnt do anything, and after about 30 seconds it goes back to the screen that says "Launch Startup Repair" and "Start Windows Normally"
What should I do? I've tried all that I know of, and I'm thinking I should just take this in to the local computer store here..
Any help will be appreciated !

Please fill out your system specs.

What is the title of the disk you are trying to boot from? Exactly what does it say on this disk?

Those disks may be able to do a clean install or maybe not.

Are you sure you want to do a clean install rather than restore your computer to factory specifications?

Even if your disks won't do a clean install, you should be able to download an ISO and burn a disk that will do a clean install---if that is truly what you want.

As requested, please fill in some system spec info. We don't know whether you've got a cat, a dog, an Hp, a Dell or what. We don't know if it's laptop or desktop. We don't know the model.
We need some help from you.
