You may try running a diagnostic on your hard drive to make sure it is in good working condition. Most Dell computers have a built-in diagnostic program, if you press F12 at boot, you should be able to access that.

Tip

WinXP with NERO8, and SP3


If you have WinXP and NERO v. 8, - then DONT upgrade yor system to SP3.
Your controlpanel disaper, and uninstall of the SP3 is impasible, but, - if you got this problem, do as follow:
"run" regedit, find and delete all nero 8 related issues, it takes about a milion years, but its the only way.
When this is done, and your controlpanel is reachable, delete SP3, and do all the updates for SP2 +.
Then reinstall NERO8 again, and you are back on track.
