The disk is about to fail and Windows is corrupted. Boot from a Linux Live-CD and copy all your data to an external hard disk. Then replace the hard disk with a new one and junk this one, reinstall Windows and copy all your files from the external hard disk in the new internal one.

Do as it suggests, if you can, backup your data. Purchase a new hdd, fit it, load windows, download all drivers from Dell and use a usb converter to copy files back from the faulty drive.

I can not access my computer after imminent failure message


> imminent failure message ... cannot access

Bad luck that the 'imminent' failure was _SO_ soon followed by _complete_ failure.

Buy a new disk-drive. Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive.
Reconnect the old disk-drive, as a 'slave' disk-drive, and hope that you can access the files on it, even though you could no longer 'boot' Windows from it.

Hard disk failure


Hi

Thank you for your query

From what you are describing something called SMART which resides on your motherboard has kicked in.

This little utillity will kick in just before your hard drive is about to fail, allowing you time to copy data across

I would not waste time, please copy your data as soon as possible and then replace your hard drive

I hope this has been useful
