Turn off the laptop and keep pressing the F8 key to get to the boot menu. At that point, choose safe mode. If you can get into safe mode then go into system restore and choose the last date that the laptop was working properly. The system will reboot at that point and hopefully it will go into windows normally.
If you can't get into safe mode then that means windows is corrupted and you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and reinstall windows and the device drivers for your hardware.
Ok do not worry this may mean two things crached hard drive or a corrupted hard drive all you have to do is turn it on but let the red ligth be on turn it on do not remove your finger from the button until it go's off again turn it on again keep your finger until it makes a sound but still do not remover your finger untill it makes two sounds after eachouther take your finger of fast nou a screen will apear say restore sestem untill your ps3 works again it take 1-4 trys and if nothing happens you must format it.HOPE I WAS USEFULL PLZZ RATE ME AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELS EMAIL ME TO email@example.com I DO PS1,2,3,DVD PLAYERS AND PC sorry for my spelling i am only 13 and i afrikaans BUT PLZZZ RATE ME....Tnks

The reason of of start in safe mode is to give you the opportunity to fix something wrong in your system.
Posible causes :
- You are not shuting the system down Properly.
If you have a power supply that needs to be turned off manually make sure you turn it off only when the system tells you it is save to do it.( after clicking in shutdown in start menu).
- There are incompatibilities in your system.
Make sure all the devices are properly installed ( hardware and software) and and there is no conflict between them.( you can read about this in windows help( look in start menu or in the toolbar of any window for the button HELP).
Some times it is a simple driver you need to install or reinstall.
- A system file is corrupted ( most the time you will have to reinstall Windows) if that is the case, there are other ways to fix it but are a little more complex.
- Problems in the Registry( only people familliar with that can fix it) or can be solved by reinstalling Windows.
-Make sure the CMOS is saving your Config in the setup.
may be the battery needs to be replaced( you will have to configure Setup again after replacing it.
In any case i advice you to get help from somebody familiar with PCs, before you try anything that can result in damage for your PC.
If you want to do it yourself, get some tutorials about PCs.
You haven't received a response from Whisperwolf because our email notification system is down right now.
When you start your system and before your Dell screen shows, Press either the F2 or F10 screen. This should get you a System Bios setup screen. In this screen, see if there is an entry for your Hard drive and CDROM drive.
If you can get that far comment back and I'll check back here until our email system is working again. The fact that your computer is not responding to your CDROM is not a very good sign and your computer may have been starting to fail with the first of errors you received and is now at complete risk.
