It sounds like there may be a problem with the install CD. That would mean either the CD or the disk drive isn't working. Clean your CD, make sure it's flawless. The drive is probably working fine if it does enter the setup. You might want to try to spray around in there with some canned air to make sure there's no dust.

Or download and run Memtest86 to see if your RAM isn't bad. www.memtest86.com

I actually posted this as well on CF.
