Usually if that is the case the hard disk is corrupted that which means that some of the files in the booting system cannot be read properly. You can replace your hard disk or if there is a computer repair shop or technician near you, you can make it reformatted-that is to reset the the configuration of your computer- but the risk is the your files that you saved in the drive C will be lost and You can still recover it using the recovery software.

    Power down your laptop.
    Press the power button to turn-on laptop.
    Start pressing the F8 key immediately AFTER the DELL logo screen and BEFORE the windows screen.
    You SHOULD be brought to the same screen as you described above but with an additional option: TURN-OFF automatic restart. Select this option and press ENTER.
    Let laptop cycle and you should see blue background screen with white letters giving you information.

    Please provide the ERROR message on screen BEFORE we can advise you any further.

    It looks like you're encountering an endless reboot? Here's what to do to find the actual error message.

    1. Turn on the computer, and press F8 after the POST screen but before Windows attempts to start to access the advanced startup options.
    2. Select "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" and press Enter.
    You should now get a blue screen with an error message and error codes. Please write these codes down and report back.

    Problem restarting, "press r"


    1. Start the laptop
    2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
    3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
    4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
    5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
    It "should" now load normally, if not then..
    1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
    If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.
