"the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. windows installation cannot proceed to install windows click Ok to restart the computer and then restart the installation." but when i hit okay to make it reinstall it boots up and does the same thing.

Put the install disc in the drive.

Reboot and enter the bios. Set your bios to boot from the DVD drive first. Save changes and exit the bios.

You should drop into the install again. Do a fresh install at that point.

I think this may be a bit out of your league...You may be better off having a shop do this for you... Good Luck!
