We tried starting the laptop with the disc inside it and after turning the laptop on.

Any help will be a life saver as I are not well versed in the world of mac.
Does your Tiger install disc have a Black label on it, in other words, is it a retail disc?
If the label is grey, then the disc is a restore disc for a specific computer model, and will only install on that computer.
