Shut down the computer and then hold Fn key and then press the power buttong which will take you to Pre Boot Assesment test so let the test run and if hard drive is failing it will give you an error.If you want to do extended test then once this PSA test is finished it will ask you wether you want to remaining memory test just say yes and after that run the extended test which test the computer components extensivly and by that you can make sure wether hard drive is fine or not.If everything passes then reisntall Operating system or if you want to try to repair then boot from vista dvd (if vista) and then choose option repair.Let me know if further help needed

First, if you are still running Vista on your desktop then you will need to buy a license for the laptop. Does the laptop have a WinXP on it now? If so, go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx and run the Vista Upgrade Advisor. If not, determine the hardware specifications of your laptop and go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/system-requirements.aspx Compare your laptops specs to those listed for the version of Vista you wish to install.

I'd suggest first removing your memory modules and reinsert one at a time.
But, I think your operating system is compromised, due to Spyware, etc.
Since your system won't boot in Safe Mode, your only other option is to repair or reinstall your operating system.
Hope this helps.

Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

try going to safemode w/ networking.
if you're using windows XP try this
to access that mode, shutdown the computer completely and after 20 secs turn in on again, as soon as you see the dell screen immediately strike F8 key continuously, if that is successful you should be at the advance menu options. use your arrow keys to choose and highlight safemode w/ networking and hit enter. if you see your operating system after just hit enter again.
once at safemode try to pull up internet explorer if still this doesnt work, go to the contol panel click internet options if your in classic view but if not click network connections first then click internet options. click the advance tab, that should be at the least right hand side, click reset which is under restore advance settings.
if your using IE8 at windows XP operating system, try uninstalling the IE8, to do that try the instructions below.
click control panel
click add/remove program
find and click the IE8 then click uninstall or remove
then restart the computer
if still doesnt work try to install a different browser like mozilla firefox, google chrome or maxthon
and if still doesnt work then try to reinstall the operating system back to factory settings.
i hope this helps
Pls rate my resolution thanks!!
