dell inspiron 1545 help

was told to post this here instaed of installation ans set up..
help needed 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

any help appreciated guys

in2media,

I have asked Cottonball to take a look at your issue. I believe you still have something hiding after you did a format on the drive when you had the FBI randsomware.

"on the laptop screen is a police screen saying to pay the fine to "... that's a nasty virus. But you clean that partition totally? low level format is 1990's stuff.. not needed and recommended. Why would you do that? do you know what that's anyway?

Did you install win7... all went fine? After first boot you have to enter a few questions did you come so far?
What's on blue screen?

Do Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
from command prompt at boot

Do "clean" instead of "clean all". Select the right disk!

When done... install win7. Post back results

Why not simple kill the FBI ransomware? Why reinstall? Or do you want a clean start?
