Did you check the CD had no defects (it should be on the menu presented when you boot from the CD :))

the pc can't boot from the cd so i didn't get the menu .

Did you verify the iso download by checking the md5sum?:
The iso has to be burned as an "image", not as a data or bootable cd, and burn at 8x or less.

I assume your pc is capable of booting from cd, just not the Ubuntu cd you burned.

Added: The md5sum should be correct, since you used ktorrent, but it still may not hurt to check. I think there is an option in ktorrent to verify the integrity of the downloaded iso.

i tested its intergrity, no errors or problems.
right click on the image and clicked write to disc ,but now i changed the write speed to 7x.in the first time it was 52x and it didn't take more than 1 minute.this could be the problem.
so now i will wait to finish writing, and then i'll keep you all updated.
thanks guys for the support
