Hard Drive problem

I have a Dell Latitude Cpi A366XT. All of a sudden, it wouldnt start windows. When I turn it on, it loads up dell, then it goes to a screen that says "Disk I/O error: Status 00001012, Windows couldn't start because the file is missing or corrupt: \system32\ntoskrnl.exe." I have no clue what this means, hopefully you can help me in my bind. Thanks, Gambler

Have a dell latitude D620 that is password protected in such a way as to prevent even the F2 and F12 keys to function. Can you supply a way around this please

You may have a USB keyboard that is not recognized by the BIOS on powerup, but is later recognized by Windows when that starts running. Try connecting a keyboard with a PS2 connector, enter F2 on startup and set the BIOS to enable USB devices in BIOS. If this still doesn't work, then keep a PS2 keyboard around in case you ever need to activate F2 or F12.

Dell Latitude D620 When I open my laptop the screen will not come back on. I have to turn it off and turn it back on to get the screen to work.

Sounds like it's going into a sleep/standby mode. Check your manual for the correct key/key sequence to restore it to full operation.
