Tried a following this troubleshoot: Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program
My computer froze up at the same point as when I was full booting.

Are you still using the battery?Have you tried taking off the battery and booting up only with the cable?
What's your laptop's brand/model?

You've been struggling with this problem for a week. If I was in your shoes I would do a clean install of W7.

This tutorial will show the steps, including downloading a W7 iso file you can burn to a disc or USB flash drive.

I'd honestly rather that be the last resort. Is there any way to check for other hardware issues? I think it might be a graphics card issue.

It very well could be your video card, you said in a earlier post there was no problems using safe mode.

Have you had a recent driver update? You could uninstall the card and let Windows install it again and find the drivers, or just download the drivers from Dell. A new card would be big $$$!

I downloaded the driver from dell (made sure it was the right one, the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870), but when I was trying to run the installer, it said "Failed to load detection driver".

Mate have you got the right graphics quoted ATI Mobility? Radeon HD 5870? as I cannot find any drivers for that HD 5870 except the desktop PCI variety!

Hum strange cos when I Google that device it gives me a desktop plug in card

Anyway that ref did you download it from there?

Another thought was did this start to happen after a Windows update? if so why not try a system restore?

This is what I was going off of with the driver, and where I tried downloading a new one. I don't know when the last update was, I'm thinking Windows Update is one of those nixed services when in safe mode. The driver was from Drivers & Downloads | Dell United States
