Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
An area near the boot sector on your hard drive is faulty or corrupt. Go to www.grc.com & purchase a program called spinrite. This utility will in 97% of cases, fix the Hard Drive problem you are having and allow windows to boot correctly. This will be fantastic if there is a lot of data on the drive that you haven't backed up yet (precious photos) If there isn't any thing on the drive worth keeping, buy your self a new Hard Drive and reinstall Windows. We see a lot of this problem in the workshop. Check to see if the machine has an extended warranty to claim the cost back. Sometimes the retailer you purchased it from offer this as part of the purchase agreement. Spinrite will cost you around $90 us, but its worth it. I run it on all my home machines every 12 months as a preventative and have never experienced a failure.
Since you can get into the BIOS, check if the S.M.A.R.T. function for hard disk is enabled. This should warn you of impending failure of your hard disk next time.

I think the problem is form your hard disk? Does your hard disk make any noise? Or maybe the windows is corrupt.
Loose your computer to see if you can do one or two things that can help your PC improve.
I wish you the best of luck
