    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's modded Minecraft tech support.

I suggest you delete your .minecraft folder (find this by typing %appdata% in the Start menu search) then follow the following steps:

  1. Launch Minecraft using the launcher.
  2. Make a new profile and edit it to launch in the version of Forge you have downloaded.
  3. Launch that profile and wait until it reaches the main menu then close it.
  4. Run the Forge installer (you would have got it from the Forge website).
  5. Oonce forge is downloaded it will give you a message "successfully installed Forge".
  6. Select profile "Forge"
  7. Run game!

Try seeing if you have the right version of forge that you downloaded, because if you don't, it might not work.
