Yes, it is a hard drive issue and there is no fixing it temporarily without losing your data. The best thing to get your data is to get a USB enclosure for the type of drive it is (if it's a sata drive or a pata drive) or get an adapter that's an all in one (for 3.5, 2.5, and SATA). Then you hook your failing drive up to the converter, put it in the usb port of another computer and then it will show up as another drive that you can open and explore.

I is my understanding that you can contact Dell with the service tag, and express code and get the master password to clear forgotten passwords.

I had the same problem and came across this solution that worked for me as well:
Re: windows Vista will not start 18 Aug 2009 07:28PM I was getting a the same error codes and couldn't get Windows to boot up at all. I went to BIOS set up (restart your computer and hit F12 when the BIOS screen comes up), went to onboard devices and changed the SATA Operations from ACHSI (don't know how it got there) to the factory default setting ATA. Then I started up in "repair mode" (which was an option that was coming up when I tried to boot up before but never worked) - it went through a repair check and went to login screen.
Prior to finding this - I tried several things including start up from the Reinstallation disc, but nothing worked. I was ready to buy a new hard drive, but don't have to. Works fine!
Not sure what caused the problem to start with. It is an "Inspiron 1520"

SOURCE: New Dell Inspiron, wont play DVD's states no

You need to use the software to play DVD movies. Try using windows media player to start the DVD or if the computer came with DVD playing software then try it. You can also check the Dell site and download the latest driver package and install the drivers. It might be missing the dvd rom driver. When you put in the DVD does it autoplay and ask you what software to use to open the disc? You can also go into the control panel and check the device manager. Check and see if the dvd rom is a problem device and/or try to update driver for the device. Have you tried different dvds? Maybe it is having a problem with just that DVD. Some DVD's will not play in a computer but will play in a DVD player.

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd


Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

Would like to upgrade Dell Inspiron 1300 c.d drive


Is your dvd rom drive a RW drive? if not, you need to buy a RW-dvd rom drive to be able to RW dvds or cds.

If you already have a RW DVD Rom drive, you need to have a burning application (ex. nero burning rom). You can check on the internet and download a freeware and install it on your machine.
