I did the bios reset though
Still no dice.
But I don't know how to set my bios to AHCI. That could be the issue.

1. Did you get a 25-character Product Key? Did the DVD come in original packaging?

Do NOT put the key into your post. That's what costs the money and not the DVD.

2. Ikahn:
Update your system specs to best of your abilities.
Your present entry there is a joke and completely useless.
Don't forget to enter the manufacturer of the computer and the model.

3. Once you get XP installed, then the first order of business is:
Run the Upgrade advisor: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

There is no sense in trying to install Win 7 if the advisor says you have serious problems.
Include the Advisor report in your next post.


====================
That's three points.

Carry out all three.

1. Bought 3 copies from Newegg.com. The windows cd's/keys arent the problem trust me.

2. The txt file is from speccy it should give you all the info you need. If not ask me for more :]

3. I downloaded and ran it. Says I have no problems really. I dont know how to save it so i can upload it here. Will a screen shot suffice?
