I am re installing Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron laptop. I used the disc that came with the system. Everything went smooth and restarted a couple of times but once it got to "Completing installation", it's been stuck on it for about an hour. I'm assuming that's not right because I've installed Windows 7 numerous times. The green status bar on the bottom isn't moving at all if that helps. What should I do?
make a hirem boot cd...boot from it and do and fdisk/mbr to clear out any damaged files in the mbr. the remove all the partion on the hard drive then make one new one. (just in case there a virus on your system. then do a full format to check for bad sectors on the hard drive. if there a bad spot you ned dos to blank it out so windows and any other program wont use it.
