My macbook pro keeps getting stuck at the startup screen. I tried booting into safe mode which didnt work. I tried booting it with the install disc in while holding down 'c' but that doesnt seem to work either. Im not exactly sure how long to hold down 'c' though. If I start up holding 'c' until the apple comes up on the bluish gray screen it ejects the install disc and the wheel starts spinning. If I let go too early it goes into the install mac os x process which I dont think I want either.

any ideas?

EDIT: now it just ejects the disc no matter how long i hold down c for
EDIT2: it just flashed with a folder with a question mark on it for a few seconds before ejecting the disc and trying to boot up
