I then booted with the emergency disk and restored the image to the SSD.

Finally, I made sure TRIM was enabled on the SSD.

Everything worked perfectly after doing the above.

I think you need to reinstall your hard drive, and then do a backup and an emergency boot disk with Macrium Reflect Free. If you use Macrium rather than whatever you were using, you will have success.

Inspiron N7110 Windows 7 needs reset to factory setting.
Its a laptop. Bluescreen shows up for split second so I can't see the error code. I tried pressing Ctrl + F11 during boot but didn't work. Any another thing I can try before I throw it out? Don't say 'contact Dell'.
