My dell inspiron 1525 has a black screen with a white cursor showing


First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.
4. In the User Interface it will show you some options to select. Once the Install screen comes up look on the lower part select Repair Your Computer. If will ask you to do Startup Repair, please do start up repair. If fails try the System Restore. If fails then step 5;
5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

When i boot up i get a message that my hard disk failure is immenent is there anyway to repair this problem


if you get a "Disk Controller Error" error messages that may occur before Windows XP or Windows 2000 is started. Imminent Hard Disk Failure This error may appear when the hard drive detects that it will fail or stop working sometime soon.
Backup Data Before Proceeding Although the notebook may continue to start Windows after displaying the message, it is advisable that you immediately backup your personal data from the PC by copying it to a Network Drive, CD, DVD or USB storage device. After completing the backup, use one of the following methods to resolve the error. Step 1: Test the Hard Drive Use the steps below to test the hard drive in a Notebook PC using the HP Hard Drive Self Test.
  1. Plug the AC Adapter into the Notebook PC.
  2. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the PC.
  3. Press and hold the F10 key while you press the Power button to turn on the PC. Release the F10 key after text is displayed on the screen of the PC.
  4. After the BIOS Setup Utility is displayed, use the Right Arrow key to select the Tools menu.
  5. Select Hard Drive Self Test
  6. Press the Enter key to start the test.
The Hard Drive Self Test will provide an Estimated test time . A Quick test, a Comprehensive test, and a SMART test will execute when the Enter key is pressed. If any test fails , order a replacement hard drive. If all of the tests pass, the hard drive is not damaged.



If all tests pass , press the power button to restart the PC. The error was most likely a result of a shock to the PC triggering a SMART error from the Hard Drive. Since the Notebook PC passed the Hard Drive Test, it is safe to use.
