Re: window resume loader
Windows Vista doesn't shut down the machine by default when you press the power button. Additionally, if you look at the bottom of the start menu you'll see this:
The button on the left, highlighted here in bronze, does NOT turn the machine off in Windows - it suspends it, which requires power. When the battery runs down, the power goes out and you get this message the next time you start up.
Some laptops also indicate suspend mode by flashing the power light.
Happily, if you click on the little right facing arrow a menu pops up, one of the options of which is "Shut down" and this will bring Windows down properly and fully.
You can also change the function of the power switch (which defaults to suspend, NOT shut down) by going into the power options from Control Panel:
Selecting one of the above options will allow you to set the power button and closing the lid to turn the machine off fully, not suspend it.

Try holding down the power key to force it to power off. Power it back up again and you should get the Windows Resume Loader with the following options "Continue with resume" and "Delete resume data and continue with startup". I can't remember the exact wording of the options, it may be different but you need to select the later or second option "Delete resume data and continue with startup".
I'd suggest that your memory or hard drive is going bad. RAM issues are normally accompanied by a blue screen with a STOP 0xxxxx00038 (example) type of message or a Page fault type error, which is caused when windows loads, and the full potential of the Ram module is used, highlighting the fault with the module.
Try substituting a RAM module and see if this stops the problem, then, if you get it running, download MEMTEST and run it for an hour to check the ability of the ram to read and write information.
If the ram is ok, the fault may be with the hard drive, a faulty drive will not read the sectors that Windows is installed on and this might account for the constant rebooting. If you can remove the drive test it externally using a docking station or slave it to a working computer and download HDD check, which will test for any performance drop or bad sectors.
If you think that the Ram and HDD are ok, then obtain an external USB DVD drive and try a repair after setting the bios to boot from the USB drive
Unfortunately, it sounds like your hard drive has crashed. You'll have to change your hard drive or take it to someone who can replace it for you. If you have a bunch of preinstalled software but don't have the disks to reinstall them it might be cheaper to replace the computer.
How do you switch off you laptop? Try this press and hold on the power button for about 5 seconds. So it won't boot to windows? When you turn on the laptop and you see the dell logo keep tapping on F8 then try booting in safe mode, if fails do F8 again then last known good configuration, if fails do F8 then startup repair, if fails do F8 then system restore, if all fails reinstall os. but before all these steps try to test hdd first. make sure laptop is off. press and hold on the Fn key then press power button. Run the PSA test and once it finish it will show you some errors code like 0142 -0146 means hdd needs to be replaced.
This is a no boot issue. Youre saying that you can perfectly run the PSA diagnostics but doesnt load Windows rather it stays on black screen, meaning the boot loader of Windows failed to load. You need to reinstall windows on your computer
There is a known corruption problem with Windows Vista's resume operation, but I've not yet confronted it on a laptop. On a desktop the problem occurs when a USB keyboard is in use, and the resolution is to unplug it and make sure that you're using a standard PS/2 keyboard instead, but I am not sure if this will work on a notepad. It depends if the notepad scans for an external keypad at boot time. Try plugging in an external keyboard before you turn the power on and see if that works.
If it doesn't work, I'm not sure what to suggest. People who have had this problem appear to have tried everything from resetting the BIOS to reformatting the hard drive. If you try it and report failure I'll investigate the matter further.
