Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
If I remember correctly, this is a fault for your hard drive and it either has or is about to die. If you are under warranty, I would suggest calling Dell to correct the issue (they may be able to send you a new drive).
If not, you may be able to salvage your data with a 2.5" drive adapter (either IDE or USB) and another system. If you are out of warranty, you will need to purchase a new laptop hard drive , swap it out with the old one and reinstall your system, applications, etc. For this, you will need the system restore CD and resource CD. If you don't have the resource CD with the drivers for your system, you can download them strait from Dell but you will need a separate disks to install your operating system (windows I'm guessing) applications, etc.
If you were able to salvage your data, you can copy your data back to the system.
