dell inspiron 1545 help
help needed on a dell i got today.. i bought it cheap. due to the fact that the person i got it from was scared of a warning she got a day or 2 ago. on the laptop screen is a police screen saying to pay the fine to ??????? or else, and her ip addy is being logged as illegal.
anyway back to my problem
i thought i would re-install windows 7 as the factory back up has been deleted
on boot up i get the blue screen of death!
if i try low level format laptop freezes?
i managed to install linux mint no problem at all.
i try windows again and blue screen again
tried maxtor powermax to low level and kill disc

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,
Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.
Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.
At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.
