i recently had to wipe windows 7 off my pc and am currently in the process of trying to reinstall 7 but after a few minutes it goes into sleep mode and i cannot get it to wake up at all. I thought it was something to do with the power management bios so i went to have a look and the only 2 options i have are S1 and S3. i have no os on it at this point. what can i do to get this going?

info as follows
Studio XPS 7100
Bios :A06 9/10/2010

S1 is only screen off, so I would start with that one first. Even with the screen off at least windows will keep installing.

Do not assume anything
