are you using the same DVD that you used to install Windows on your laptop?

Try removing the sound card and see if it installs then.

Do you think your DVD drive is bad?

see if it will boot from the XP install disc, or anything else for that matter (e.g. some Linux "live" distro). If it works, that should eliminate the DVD drive as being the problem.

Check your BIOS settings.. make sure that your DVD drive is set as the first boot device...

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

Are you trying to install 32 bit or 64 bit version?
I have a AMD 4200+ in a machine and I have never been able to install or run Win7 64 bits on it. I run 32bits (I am writing from it right now) and I have installed and run Vista and Ubuntu 64 bits, but Win7 won' t work. I replaced the processor and it worked fine, so it is the 4200+.
It might have been just mine that has a problem (although that seems to be the only problem with it) but it can be some design flaw.
Try 32 bits if you can
And welcome to the forums!

Well if the computer is already showing the DVD boot screen I would've thought that is already the case. But certainly worth looking into.
