That is most usually a hardware problem. Either there is something wrong with the set up of your DVD player, or perhaps your disc is either dirty or scratched. First try cleaning your installation CD (DVD). If that doesn't work, I would suggest you take it to a computer shop. Since you state you don't know much about computers it would be difficult for me to walk you through trouble shooting steps for your laptop. But perhaps someone else here could.
EDIT: My bad, i quickly read your first post, you KNOW you have a hardware problem and were savvy enough to install a hard drive. First, recable your DVD and hard drive, ensuring that the hard drive is master. Then run either Memtest 86, Windows Memory Diagnostic, or use the
memory test in BIOS if there is one available.
Also, set your BIOS to 'optimal' settings..
