Please help, i'm not sure what to do.

Installing Windows 7 has seemed to doom my PC. Everything was running fine on my XPS when I decided to install Windows 7....

They warn you that during the installation your PC will need to reboot itself a few times.. while the installation was running it tried to do the first reboot and when the computer came back on it stayed stuck on the first screen...

" Dell  ...  Dell XPS720 ... Bios Revision A06 " with a progress bar that freezes at about 1/4th of the way.

There's nothing I can do about this screen, after about 3 hours of sitting there I decided I would try a reboot, I forced the computer to turn off and when I turned it back on it just got to the same point (takes about 5 seconds) and it froze at the same spot.

Any experts know what might be going on here?
