    Do you have a cd rom and a DVD player? You said you put your cd rom as the first boot device (in the BIOS I assume) but you can't use the installation DVD on a cd rom (only). Now, in that same area of the BIOS, you can move up your USB device to the first boot position (if you have that option) and then you could boot to your USB flash drive (if you have properly transferred the installation disc to it).

    Does your laptop still startup--without the DVD? If yes, then try using this startup options menu tutorial to access the menu and, subsequently, to refresh your PC:

    Refresh Your PC in Win8—Attempts to solve system problems by replacing system files without affecting user data files. Such files still should be backed up off computer. Installed programs will have to be reinstalled except those from the Windows Store. A list of uninstalled programs is provided on desktop. Your personalization settings will be maintained. System settings will be set to defaults. A Windows.old folder will be created at C:. You can delete it once you have everything you want from it--Windows.old Folder - Delete in Windows 8.
