Does your Dell XPS 600 have integrated graphics on the mother board?
Generally used if your graphics card fails, so can use the computer until it's repaired/replaced.
You might try installing Windows 7 from a USB memory stick.
Just a suggestion, you can make sure you don't have a problem with the ISO burn to a DVD. If you suspect your installation DVD might be corrupt or want to ensure it's not corrupt, try this.
If you have a minimum 4GB USB memory stick, put Windows 7 on it, it will load faster and no burn errors.
The Seven Forums tutorial explains how to do it. How to Create a Windows 7 Installation USB Key
This is easy and fast to put on a memory stick, less time then burning to a DVD. It will also install Windows 7 faster.
