Step 1: Shut down your PC completely. Step 2: Turn on the Power button. Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.) Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration". Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Boot the laptop, and immediately after you see the DELL splash screen, start pressing F8. This will display a startup menu with a few different options. Choose the option that says "Last Known Good Configuration" - this will back out the last update changes that may have caused your problems. Good luck!!
Please use this solution thta I have placed on this forum.

good luck. hope it works for you. pieter.
When you turn the laptop on hit f8 until the menu comes up, try use the last good known configuration. If that does not work tap f8 goto safe mode and then to system restore and restore it to an earlier time. Let me know if it works.
This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.
What operating system are you using? Windows XP? What was the last thing installed? IE7 or regular Windows updates. Assuming Windows 2000 or higher, press F8 every couple of seconds during the initial boot process. Select "Safe Mode". Once at the desktop you have a couple of options depending on your configuration. Attempt "Start", "Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools", "System Restore". Following the prompts, choose the latest date in bold prior to the lastest installed software. If system restore is off, choose "Start", "Control Panel", "Add / Remove Software", remove IE7 or latest installed software.
