There's no guanrantee that Snow Leopard will run on that computer!!!
Retail Snow Leopard DVDs only have drivers/support files for computers released Before the retail DVD. There's a good possibility that the motherboard has changed, which means "some" drivers changed (I don't know which), so it wouldn't work.

Try booting into the recovery partition and using Disk Utility to repair your regular startup Volume.

You can create your own DVD or USB flash drive:
