DOS takes minimal hardware so it's either

The laptop gas a hard failure such as a non booting diskette (that's where you boot dos from?) or you mistated the problem. Windows 2000 doesn't normally offer a boot to DOS.

For a laptop, use the Restore CDs and select the non-destructive install of the OS that came with the laptop. If you have no restore CDs, then a lot more should be told.
