This may be due to bad or low quality DVD drive in your laptop. You should burn the DVD or CD at very slow speed (10x) for these to read the contents.
If your desktop can read the contents of the DVD, and you have a spare USB stick with at least 4GB free space. You can create a bootable USB stick to install Windows 7 from. Ofcourse, your laptop should be able to boot from USB devices for this to work.

Try pulling all but one stick of memory. I`m guessing you are running 2x1G & 1x512. Try leaving in 1 Gig, though leaving in 2 might work as well.

I would pull out the odd stick of RAM. In your case probably the 512.
