I've had my dell laptop since yesterday and nothing has been weird with it and it has been running fine...but today i decided to install windows vista ultimate and reformat to get rid of all the pre-installed dell crap on the computer. the install was going fine until the part where it has to finalize the installation and the computer just stopped...no hd light blinking, progress bar stopped moving, couldnt do anything. tried to restart and vista doesnt load (no surprise) but what could be causing the problem? maybe a bad HD?? im running memtest now to see if it can pick up anything from the memory...any other suggestions?
