    Dell is making me take the laptop back to Best Buy for the Geek squad to fix. Good luck on that one.

    This is a Dell Inspiron 1526, same symptoms same error msg. Tried to reformat the hard drive, no go, it is in immediate state of failure.

    Has anyone else had this problem of Dell not helping because it is a Best Buy purchase ?

    Dageezer is mistaken...your hard drive is not neccesarily dead. I have had to run a full system test (a long session, about 6-7 hours) several times in the past few months. It's always fine after that. Just learned of a shortcut fix for this error. 1) Press F8 key as soon as computer begins startup; 2) In Windows "Advanced Options" menu, choose "Last Known Configuration"; 3) Press "Enter". This should work for you. Basically, VISTA sucks.

This is an easy one.

You hard drive has DIED.

Call or chat with Dell tech support and get a replacement drive

Since the system is less that a year old, you can request a replacement drive witht eh factory image on it too.

Will the Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 cpu/processor work with the Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop? I have already tried it and it wouldn't work and I'm wondering if I have to do anything extra for it to work.

The 1420 uses T-series CPUs with a front side bus (FSB) of 800MHz. The P-Series CPUs use a 1033MHz FSB and are not compatible with the unit. You need to stick to the T-series to stay compatible.
