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

    Did you verify the iso download by checking the md5sum?:
    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/iso
    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.

    Re: can't install hardy

    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
