I'd reset all BIOS settings back to manufacturer defaults, then use your original restore disc that came with your new computer (if you can find it).

Most likely the laptop is looking for a specific hardware/software configuration, and rejecting your 3rd party install which most likely doesn't contain the required drivers.
