Anyway, we switched on the laptop, and a screen saying it was installing system drivers was on for about 40 minutes, so we left it an extra 2 hours to finish the install. We went back to the laptop, and the system had restarted.

As the laptop booted up, an error message appeared stating that windows could not be installed correctly, and to restart the laptop to complete installation, which we did. However, that didn't work. We tried booting in safe mode and various other options, and the system recovery is obviously not able to be used.

Any ideas, as the lapto can not be used!!

Hi and welcome

What dvd's do you have? did the laptop come with vista on it and you upgraded it to win 7, or was win 7 on it when you got it?
