Try removing the hard drive and connecting it to ab USN hard drive adapter, then plug this USB adapter and hard drive into the USB port of a working computer.
If this computer can see this as an external storage device and if you are lucky you can open the various folders and files then you can back up your data.
I think this hard drive has failed completely, there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cose you an arm and a leg for their services.

SOURCE: DST result fails

I would say this is the memory. You said that you checked the memory, and it passed, but did you download a cd called 'memtest x86' ? This will definately make sure your RAM isn't cooked. You boot off of this disc and let it go for a couple hours, it will tell you if it finds errors. Also, if it's the harddrive, you can just replace the harddrive, and then hook it up via USB and retrieve your information.

SOURCE: My Dell Latitude D830 will not boot up?

Your boot up needs to be repaired...follow the following repair and you should get booted back up. I do believe however that you are losing your hard drive, so watch it carefully and think about getting a backup for your files.


Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows XP CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

SOURCE: My son owns a Dell

it may be a hard drive error reporting feature available on SOME (not all) hard drives, via hard drive firmware.

Check your BIOS Setup and see if it is enabled : the HD may have a feature you will be able to correct this by enabling it.

have you tried (bottom right corner of screen) Dell icon support " get in contact with www.dell.com and give them the service tag #.

It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

You will need a new hard drive. Its a DST fail "Drive Self Test". If you have the original Windows CD you could boot to the recovery console and backup what you need before swapping out hard drives.

Actually if the hd is corrupted, you can try to go to safe mode or do a chkdsk and then fix boot otherwise you need to contact drivesavers for that.

Greetings AROD718,

This error message is telling you that your hard-drive is nearing OR has already failed.

I would contact a buddy or go somewhere local to get Data recovery ASAP or if that is not important to you start shopping for a new hard-drive.

Hard drives are not very expensive and are simple to install, if you need further assistance please reply back!


Good luck,

Shawn
