Blue Screen doesn't load Operating System. I beleive there is a software conflict when my daughter downloaded an application she needed for university


If you are getting 'Uncorrectable data Error or Media' for your internal hard drive then it is likely that you have a disk problem rather than a software conflict caused by anything your daughter downloaded.
If the Dell diagnostics provide no solution, then you would need to use a specialist boot CD to try to repair the disk errors. One such disk is Hiren's Boot CD which can be downloaded as a CD image file (.ISO) from http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ then would need to be burnt on to a blank CD then the laptop booted from this CD.
On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select DOS programs, then select Disk tools before selecting HDAT2 to perform the disk repair actions.
HDAT2 can take some time to complete depending on the size of your internal disk drive and the number of bad sectors or other errors encountered - the tool will attempt to repair bad sectors by reading, verifying, writing and re-reading / verifying the data.
If the disk can be recovered, then you may be lucky and the system will be able to boot but otherwise, you may still need to do some further recovery work for the operating system, in which case you may need your Windows install or recovery CD media.

What causes" ntldr"?


NTLDR fail is either corrupt files or a bad disk drive. Check my tip for how to repair software. If it is a hardware error, don't use the computer and get it to a local shop that can recover your data and replace your disk drive.

Hi,

Please let us know which windows you are running and you mentioned that it doesnt load windows so doesnt it give you any message.

3. Use the down arrow key on the keyboard and select safe mode with networking and press enter.
4. If it ask to select windows select windows and press enter.
5. It should show you the drivers loading window and then it should show you the normal screen with big icons.

Please let us know if it works and send us exact error and which windows (xp, vista)

Dell won't boot up. The following problems isolated by F12: 3600:0123 Battery test failed 0F00:075D IDE device failed: the self test failed to read ... 0F00:0244 Block 1905 74359: uncorrectable data error...


sounds like a complete motherboard failure with a lot of other problems.
if you remove the HDD ( turn the machine over. 2 screws on the right.slide drive out ) and mount it in an external caddy you should be able to use another machine to access the drive and probably get most data off it.

Latitude D510 Hard Drive S/N IDE 167K0396T error. The laptop will not boot. Error test found only 1 location. Read Test error 0f00:0244 at Block 5842740. Can Windows XP be repaired so the computer will...


If boot sector of this hard drive resides on block 5842740 then this is a problem. Try followings...
1. Boot with a XP CD, try to repair. OR
2. When PC boots are you able to go to safe mode by pressing F8? If yes, try Good Known Configuration option first.
3. Otherwise boot in safe mode, go to command prompt, type chkdsk and then reboot your PC and let it check disk. If it ask to find sector and block issues and wanted to gic them automatically, accept it.

Good luck....

D610 DST Short Status Test Fail


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.
