SOURCE: Hello,

Hi there,

This means that your HDD is corrupted. This could have happened if your computer was dropped and sometimes it happens even when nothing has happened to it. If you take your computer to a repairman, he will be able to fix the HDD for you. Do not attempt to open the HDD yourself as the smallest piece of dust will ruin the HDD. The repairman will open it in a 100% dust proof room.

What might have happened is that the arm in your HDD has fallen on to the magnetic part of the HDD itself. Most of the data should be able to be recovered. If your laptop is only 8 months old, it should still be under warranty so i recommend that you take it to your suppler and they should fix it for free.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,
BearWeb

HI. Welcome to Fixya.
Its either you havecall your dell to replace your HDD or get a recovery disc from dell and Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition.
Warning This command can damage your partition table if a virus is present or if a hardware problem exists. If you use this command, you may create inaccessible partitions. We recommend that you run antivirus software before you use this command. We also recommend that you backup your data before you use this command. If the fixmbr command detects an invalid or non-standard partition table signature, the fixmbr command prompts you for permission before rewriting the MBR. The fixmbr command is supported only on x86-based computers.

For more information about Recovery Console, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:



Hope this resolved your issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

If this is the first time your trying to start up this computer try to restart it. Sometimes brand new laptops can fail to find the operating system on first startup. If this isn't the case it sounds like your Hard Drive is either disconnected or has had a critical failure.

Operating system not found


Ok, well either the drop has broken something on the motherboard, or, the hard drive, has been jolted so hard the heads have crashed into the platter, and killed the HDD. I would almost guarantee, that is whats wrong. Try taking out your HDD, hook it up to a USB, to HDD "Dongle" and see if your HDD responds, If it doesn't then you need a new HDD, if it does, the fault, is within the laptops circuits.

I have had this happen to me too, and found no other way to resolve this other than just reformat the hdd and reinstall the OS. If you search further, you might be able to find a simpler fix; but if not, reinstalling your Operating System will definitely fix your issue.
