Question about Computers & Internet
Assuming you have a windows xp disc you would insert the xp disc and boot from the xp disc as though you are going to re install but when you get to the options select to go to recovery console / recovery mode and then use the following commands
notice there is a space between chkdsk and the /r
the last command might take quite a while but should repair any issues.
Once done you should be able to boot back into windows - if not then it is an issue with your boot.ini file
If you have any problems let me know.
If chkdsk /r will not run or reports issues then your hard drive is most likely damaged and you will need to recover your data in which case make a bart pe disc :
Go to the FAQ / help section and it should give you a guide on how to create the bart pe disc but it is fairly straight forward
you will need your xp disc the download ( provided on the downloads section of the above website ) which you install and run and it will create an iso or allow you to burn the outcome to a cd which you can then boot off of and should allow you to recover your data.
The other option is to attach the hard drive in your dell to another computer making sure the jumpers ( if its an IDE drive ) to slave mode and then you should be able to retrieve your data off of the drive that way.
