Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Won't boot to bios


I suppose you have reseted the BIOS and it didn't have any effect.
Check in this order (either using similar components or the ones you have in another pc): power source, memory sticks, processor. If all work then the motherboard is malfunctioning - check the capacitors for leaks and bulging and replace them if necessary; or just buy a new one.

How do I get into safe mode on a Dell Inspiron 531. PF 8 doesn't do it?I can only get into Setup with PF2. Otherwise the boot up only goes to the DELL screen and hangs there.


You cant get in safe mode because the PC hangs before windows ever try to start.

Try to press F8 multiple times but right after the Dell screen.
Some computer don't like that you press F8 while the bios is loading and just hangs there, maybe its your case.

XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation


I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver. Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.
