What operating system are you using? i have had this problem with windows xp. if you have the windows xp disc then you need to use it to repair the missing files on your hard drive. just put it in and start your computer and then follow the instructions to repair.

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer depending on what operating sytem you have this may vary

For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter into safe mode and if you able to enter in safe mode.
Then first remove temp files from computer.
Go to start->run or press windows key + R key then you can see run type in run "%tmp%" then press ok then delete all temp files then type in run "prefetch" press enter delete all prefetch files.
Type in run "chkdsk /r" then press ok then press "y" then restart computrer then it fix error on harddrive.
Also scan computer with updated antivirus then it works fine.
But if you are not able to enter in safe mode.
Then you need windows disk for that insert that disk into rom then enter in bios and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit from bios .
Then it boot with that windows disk.
Then follow the procedure on screen and choose options are when it ask for "Repair previous windows" .
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Laptop was working fine. Yesterday, it shuts down and now won't start. It would go to the black screen where the ''Microsoft Corporation'' was at the bottom with the sliding green line. Would not go past...


If you have any windows xp bootable cd use that to fix the problem by running the command chkdsk /r/f or you can try with this just restart the system in safe mode with command prompt and type the command like c:\windows>chkdsk
And
c:\windows>chkdsk /r/f

Computer just shuts down


Run an Error check on your computer. Process takes anywhere from 1 to several hours, depending on hard drive size, files on computer and number of errors needing to be fixed. Manual steps to run Chkdsk at the command prompt loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');
  1. Click Start, and then Run.
  2. In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
  3. Use one of the following procedures:
    • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.
    • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.

      Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then press ENTER.

      Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

Desktop will not start.. will only go through Chkdsk


Try and tap F8 and see if you can boot to safe mode and go to my computer and rt click on C, and pick properties then tools, then
check for errors, and check auto,and scan.

Go to dell.com if you don't know who made the hard drive in your model. Then go to the mfg of the hard drive and download a hard drive diagnostic disk to check your hard drive for bad sectors.

You should go to dell.com and check your warranty and you can also ask dell what you should do.

This link posted below has a lot of drive mfg diagnostic tools.
