I believe you can fix this problem without having to lose your files and also without having to reinstall your operating system.
In order to fix this issue you will need your windows XP cd.
Place the Windows XP cd into the optical drive and restart your machine. You need to boot from your Windows XP CD and at the prompt, press "R" for repair to get inot the Windows Console.
At that prompt, select 1 for your windows instalatin directory.
type "FIXMBR" at the prompt and restart your machine.
If this does not work, repeat the above process and instead of typing "FIXMBR", type "CHKDSK /R" and let it run to fix problems. It may take some time but once done, restart your machine and you should be back in action. Good luck...

This is a Hard Drive error. If your unit is under one year old, you can get the drive replaced by Dell.
The drive can be accessed outside the laptop to retrieve the data, but it may fail all together very soon.
If you have no data on it, just get a new Hard drive installed. Dell should be able to replace the drive and start the system restore for you.

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

In this case if the caps lock is flashing blue and the other 2 LED's are solid blue, this is an indication that there is something wrong with the memory (RAM) itself.

Please reseat the memories. Please let me know if it is of any help.
