Even better would be to default in BIOS to onboard video chip if you have it.

As a last resort, borrow or buy a new video card to do the install.
Would love to do that but its a laptop. So i guess I better geta hold of Dell so they can replace the mobo.

I still think its odd that I can run Ubuntu 10.10 and install the ATI drives just fine, and the laptop works fine as well (for basic functions that is)

Were you able to enter Device Manager following the tutorial I posted to uninstall the Display driver, try completing install?

Hello NeoArod, welcome to Seven Forums!



If you are saying that Linux will install and run from the lappy but Windows 7 will not, then you may have a bad Windows installation disk/download, if the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.

Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of no more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

Sorry for the late response but it's been a very busy week. Yeah i tried it out and im seeing a lot of different devices that have warnings on them, im going one by one disabling them and i think eventually im going to disable all of them.

Heres what im looking at right now.

Have you unplugged all peripherals and other drives?

The fact that your video card was hanging the install doesn't necessarily mean it's bad, nor does it point at all to the mobo. This is just an anomaly seen in a tiny percent of installs.

We only were consulted a week ago, and the workaround given then to enter Device Manager during install apparently wasn't tried until now.

Glad it helped, though, and you're most welcome.
