I failed to boot from CD as well
It reads: Error loading operating system.
It tried to connect my SATA hard disk externally to a PC, it reads Malfunction and failed to install the harddisk.
any help? i didnt back up my docs
Dude, you rock. That worked for me also.
Bypassing the administrator password will not work in windows xp rather i know how to bypass it in vista or win7. According to me the administrator password in win xp cannot be bypassed. Can u please make me clear the administrator account which u r taking abt has it been listed when u boot the comp in safe mode option. If u needed files to be backed up from the os drive it's simple it can solved by doing a parallel installation with the os disk.
Fantastic. I ran the checkdisk twice and the problem was solved. Thanks!
Remove the hard drive, mount it in an external case, and attach it by USB to a working system. Copy what you can still read before you replace the drive.
Thank you much! Just ordered the case!
hi-it worked for me-

Chkdsk will fix the issue temporarily - suggest you to backup the data ASAP and call dell tech support for hard drive replacement provided you have warranty.
