notice:The primary IDE master hard drive SELF MONITORING SYSTEM has reported that a parameter has exeeded its normal operating range
dell recommends that you back up your data regularly.
A parameter out of range may or may not indicate a potential hard drive problem.
Strike F1 key to continue, F2 to run setup utility.
Sure sound like you hard drive is starting to have a problem. I would clean and defrag it after backing it up. start- my computer- right click on hard drive-properties-disk cleanup/ After that then 'tools defrag hard drive. then run scan disk
