Looks like a hard drive failure- simple as that. You can try a number of things but as far as my experiance goes the hard drive is dead. You either need a new hard drive or better a new computer.

Dont want to give false hopes...

    well this is the reason people dont answer questions like these.. getting loser ratings. Hardware errors cant be fixed simple as that. but whatever

    Not necessarily hard drive failure, in my case it's brand new, cloned and resized. In my case, it didn't like the resizing.

You've lost some windows files could be due to faulty hard drive or
a virus.
if windows will not load your only option is to run windows setup again and if problem persists then you definitely need a new hard drive
Do you have a wincd or recoverycd
please let me know

Direct x9 is only showing 510 mgs of ram my system has 512mgs.I Formated my HD and down loaded the latest verison of Direct x and still only showing 510.My system is a Dell Dimension 2400.


2 megs of your ram have been diverted to Video. the 2400 has onboard intel video, and the BIOS of your system has seperated 2 megs from your system to operate the onboard GPU.

Turn on computor and this message is on the screen. a new hard drive was installed.


Assuming it's not had a new drive, check the cables to the hard drive are secure. You may then need to go into bios and accept settings before you can continue (f2 or f10 ?)
