Re: Re-installing Windows 7 on Vostro 3550

Hi 24taz48,

This may be an issue with the CD/DVD which you are using in the system, please try the CD/DVD in another system and check whether the installation is working fine? Also release flea power and run the test to check the hardware is working as designed. Follow the steps below to release the excess flea power.

Switch off the system; remove the battery, ac adapter and the power cable. Press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds to drain any excess flea power and run the test. Please run the PSA hardware diagnostics to check if the hardware is working as designed. Follow the steps below.

Turn the computer off >restart the computer

At the Dell logo screen, start tapping the F12 key a few times until you see the ‘One Time Boot Menu’ appear.

At the one time boot menu, press the down arrow key to highlight ‘Diagnostic’, and then press Enter to begin the PSA diagnostics.

If the test fails, please make a note of any error codes listed. You can also refer to the link below.
