Your cache is full I would suggest that you reload windows after such a long time I am sure there are issues in windows causing this to happen reload windows and you should be good until the hard drive fails completely, FYI hard drives have a rated lifespan of 5 years after this it is all bonus/ risk time for all the data on the hard drive. a larger hard drive would not be a bad thing in any case as you can store much more on a new drive and ..they are cheap now.
Hope this helps , don't forget to rate if it fixes.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

It will be easier if you will have it checked with any computer technician. They will normally charge a very minimal fee for this very common kind of problem.

Be sure to be there when he checked your computer, so he can also teach you about it.

System says there is no hard drive. error code 0142 says hard drive error


This is what the manual says:
Replacing the Hard Drive caution.gif CAUTION: Before working inside your computer, read the safety information that shipped with your computer. For additional safety best practices information, see the Regulatory Compliance Homepage at www.dell.com/regulatory_compliance. notice.gif NOTICE: Hard drives are extremely fragile. Exercise care when handling the hard drive. notice.gif NOTICE: Use firm and even pressure to slide the hard drive into place. Excessive force may result in damage to the connector. This procedure assumes that you have completed the removal procedure Removing the Hard Drive.
  1. Slide the hard drive into the hard drive connector until the drive is fully seated.

  2. Replace the hard drive cover aligning the notches.

  3. Replace the two M2.5 x 8-mm screws to secure the cover.

  4. Install the operating system for your computer, as needed. For information on reinstalling the operating system, see the Setup and Quick Reference Guide for your computer on support.dell.com.

  5. Install the drivers and utilities for your computer, as needed. For information on reinstalling drivers and utilities, see the Setup and Quick Reference Guide for your computer on support.dell.com.
I would say that was a bit harsh and this is what I would do.
Insert your System disk and install a fresh system. During the installation, Windows should be clever enough to detect and format the drive.
If you remove the drive and with a caddy you could try to repair the system with another pc but you may get problems.
Hope this helps.

Received Dell XPS 8100. No cd player so they sent me one. Dell hell it is. Anyway, I opened it and found MANY wires unconnected. Can you tell me what connects where? I took the cd burner out of my old one...


Your old computer had IDE interface, the new computer has SATA interface.. There is a thin connector power cord and interface cords with tge same width connectors.The existing hard drive has thes cables connected to it. Connect one power cord and one data interface cable to the cd drive. Connect the audio cable to the cd drive and the Audio IN connector on the motherboard.
Unless the motherboard has a ide connector. you can not use your old hard drive or cd. You can get a external drive encloser that can convert IDE to USB

Something mechanically has gone wrong with the disk-drive inside the enclosure.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
They can disassemble the enclosure, disassemble the disk-drive, and fix it just long-enough to copy your files (onto another disk or onto blank DVD-writable media). Not "inexpensive".

Then, you can use WD's "Customer Loyalty Program", i.e., prove that you previously purchased a WD product, and you'll get a discount on buying another WD product, if you purchase through their web-site (and pay for shipping).

It takes 5 minutes for my computer to boot up. It's a 7-yr old Dell with XP. Also, I've been getting a message "Virtual Memory Minimum too Low". What can I do to fix it or should I buy a new computer?


After seven years Windows tends to accumulate lots of "trash" in the system, especially if you installed a lot of programs over the years.
First step I would suggest is to try a good disk defragmentation software. You can download and install a trial version of PerfectDisk, or a completely free Auslogics application: http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/
Run it several times and see if it makes things better. If the improvement is not enough, a good move would be to get someone experienced to save your personal files somewhere safe (a USB disk for example), then format (wipe) the disk completely and reinstall Windows from scratch + all the updates + the software you really use.
Seven years can be a lot, if you are after power-hungry modern applications and games. However, if you just want to use it for simple stuff, it can be quite enough. You don't provide the specs, but a simple RAM upgrade may just do the trick of making the machine comfortable enough to use.

My dell xps m1330 will not boot up.it comes up on screen saying ''no boot sector on internal hard drive'' ''no bootable devices''it has had a new motherboard fitted by Dell.i'm trying to install xp pro


When it's booting, try to access the setup, aka BIOS. See if you can set CD/DVD as a booting option. As the top BOOT device. Then see if you can boot your installation CD. You may be able to format your drive during the installation - if the hard drive hasn't failed?
