I'm assuming that you are running vista. Try one of the following:
You will require a Vista DVD to boot off of.
Proceed to the System Repair Option, and follow the steps. It should repair your boot sectors..
Once you have booted up, Press SHIFT+F10 to run 'cmd' prompt.
Then at the command prompt type the following (hitting <enter>) after each line.:
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h

okok, bootmgr is what, as you may be able to guess controls the booting of your computer. the solution is simple. Get out the vista installation cd that came from dell (It DOES come with your computer) and put it in. Next, boot your computer nd you see the familiar DELL screen with a bar that loads, in the upper right, there is a thing that says F12: Boot Menu. Press F12 on your keyboard, the top should now say Loading Boot Menu or something like that. After it loads, you will see a simple list. Navigate to CD/DVD or whatever it calls the disc. You computer will now read the disc and load. Wait for it to finish. It will take you to a screen where you enter some settings. Look for the link that says "repair my pc" (you may have to enter some settings and click next first). Click the link. It will ask you to automatically fix error. Click yes and let it do its thing. If this does not work, repeat the process above, except instead of letting it automatially fix error, CLICK NO! Then it should load a option saying windows vista bla bla bla. Click that and let it repair. Now the problem should be fixed

Your system files are corrupted.
Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.
Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to Restart
1. After rebooting with OS DVD, choose "Repair your Computer" and then select "Startup Repair". Reboot your computer.
2. After rebooting, click on "Load drivers" button an explorer style window will pop up, go ahead and right click on the drive that may have been compressed and deselect `Compress this Drive'. Choose apply and then apply to subfolders/files before rebooting.
There are registry commands also that can be used. But the above 2 steps can be very helpful to start with.
