I have 15" MacBook Pro DVD's and the C key on boot up in not working.  Keeps spitting out the DVD.  They loaded Windows 7 on it and wiped the drive down to bare metal?

Holding option instead of C will give you a list of bootable disks.

If the install disk is a model specific instead of a universal install disk, it will eject on boot attempt because it sees the wrong model of hardware.

You may need to contact Apple for replacement recovery/reinstall disks for your Macbook Pro.
As you may need the specific media(cd/dvd) for your specific Macbook.  Apple should be able to supply them for you, or go to the local Apple store in your area, and they'll be able to get you the right ones.  Also you may be able to install/use a retail box version of OSX, but depends on your Mac as to which ones it will be able to use.
