There are two ways,
1, If you still can access Windows, try to disable any backup programs, virus scanning programs or disk defragment tools. Try also to run a hardware diagnostics tool to detect any errors your hard drive might have. And run chkdsk /r to detect and repair any file system structural damage.
2, If you are unable to load Windows. Then you should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS (freeware). You can download it from http://www.geekswhoknow.com/files/ntfsinst.exe You will need a floppy disk.
After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.
Note! Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.

A repair install may be the easiest option.
You can follow these steps from Microsoft:

You need the C521 recovery disk, from Dell. Set the BIOS to boot from CD and start the system.
If it gives you the option of "Complete Reinstall" or "Repair", choose Complete Reinstall.
If it does not, or if it does not work - i.e., it always reads the disk and tries to maintain as much data as it can, you need to first wipe out the hard drive; there are many "Disk Wipe" utilities out there. I'd suggest using a boot disk such as DBAN (www.dban.org).

This is done 1 of three ways depending on how your restore information is stored. 1. After you push the power button start pushing the F8 key and when you get the option screen select restore to previous or restore to factory settings. This method works if your system has a special restore partition still. If you received System Restore Disk insert the CD in the CD player and reboot the system. It will boot from the CD and present the Restore menu for you to make a selection from. Your third choice is to select System restore from the system tools sub menu under the Accessories menu in your program list and chose to restore to factory settings.
