    Just tried to upgrade my pc to windows 7 as ive just had a virus and its deleted some of my windows files so whet into the bios and changed the boot priority to cd rom and put the disc in and hoped it would be straight forward. So it went passed the front screen and got to the black screen where after a few seconds it would pop up saying boot from cd, press any key and nothing happends. All it does is stay on the black screen with a white courser flashing in the top left corner while it trys to read the disc. It is trying to read the disc as it just keeps making a noise as if its trying to get up to speed and then it stops and does it again and again and again and doesnt stop until you turn the pc off. I thought it was the cd drive so i conected another cd drive and the same happened again so now im stumped! Im thinking a problem with the motherboard but im unsure.
