Sounds like Windows mightn't like something? Try reinstalling W7 over your current installation before moving on. Take out any unnecessary cards etc before doing so - strip it back to the bare essentials.

In safe mode click on the start menu and type msconfig, then enter. Select Diagnostic mode.

All AV and other services and startup programs will be disabled when you boot into normal mode.

You may then reenter msconfig and selectively check items you want to boot under the Services tab and under the startup tab. This will allow you to determine the program causing it, you may then uninstall it.

NOTE: your computer may not work as you expect if you have certain services disabled under msconfig, so if you have issues you may have something disabled that your computer needs!
Here's a couple of tips for using this method. First, on the Services tab click on the Hide All Microsoft Services option, since it's unlikely to be any of them. Second, initially only turn off the first half of what's left on the Services or Startup tabs, reboot, and check the speed. If it's OK, then it was one of the ones you turned off, and you can repeat the process by only turning off half of them and retesting. If it's not any faster, repeat the process reversing which are on and off. This will generally allow you to determine the offending service (or startup program) more quickly. – martineau May 21 '12 at 19:07 Furthermore,there are issues with microsoft update after service pack1 is installed. Part of the reason I thought U may like to go to Windows 10. I can say that Win 10 IS supported on the Vostro 220 if that's any help.

Ok so the victory was short lived and I once again couldn't boot into Windows , not even safe mode. Thus overnight I nuked the hard drive to start fresh. I reinstalled the original dell bios, patched it with the microde , and will try to install win 10 off a usb. I will take your suggestion regarding stripping the computer down, I've been wanting to remove the gpu but I don't have a vga cable on hand lol I'll have to look. Can I run Windows with just on 2gb stick of ram, the cpu, and the hard drive ?

windows minimum requirements This is clearly aimed at computer makers. It’s thus worth adding that the Windows 10 technical preview has these requirements:
EDIT: They've since upped the ram requirements to 2 & 4 Gb recommended.
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Free hard disk space: 16 GB
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver Running on 2 Gb may be a tad sluugish but still livable for daily internet usage..smile.gif

I can't remember how many sticks you are running with.
I've booted W7 with 1 x 2GB. At the very least run no more than 2 x.
So you just want 1 x hdd, cheap arse vid card if you have one, mouse and keyboard - nothing extra.
Further to what I said before I couldn't get either my P5Q or UD3P builds to install from USB. Had to resort to CD and had to install XP first before it would work. Oh yeah and along the way I replaced the CD drive.
Never had so much trouble building a PC before.

Yeah I can totally relate , I just built my skylake gaming pc and this makes that look like a breeze. I'm going to try to install with 1 * 2GB Ram, hard drive , cpu (Iintegrated graphics?) my next attempt is to install win 10 by iso.

To see if it is something hardware related, you can always try booting into a Linux LiveCD environment...I believe there are even Windows Live CD, though not positive...but that likely wouldn't help anyway if it was Windows giving you headaches and not a hardware problem.

here's my vostro bios ect, Hitting F12 @ start up should give U the boot option. If you have a USB boot drive plugged in, it'll let you choose to boot from it there or boot from cd or HDD. smile.gif Hope some of this might help ya!thumb.gif

Thanks for the pictures ! I'll compare my bios to see if there are any off differences.
