Hi Adam1989,

Please run 'Hardware Diagnostics' to confirm 'Hardware functionality':
- Make a note of error(s), if any

If the 'diagnostics' pass, please share details of 'Windows 7' copy that you are using for installation. Is it a retail version? Or is it the 'Windows Re-installation DVD - OEM version' that you may have received with your Dell? Have you used that media to 'Re-install Windows' before?

Would like to know if you were facing any issues with the computer before you attempted 'Windows Re-install'. Also mention the model of the computer.

Do reply with the information; will take it forward from there.
