Re: windows start up
Wait for the chkdsk to complete and let the windows start normally. If you still have the same problem then you have errors in the hard drive or the windows is corrupted because of improper shutdown. Follow the following steps which will restore your system and you will not loose any data ;
Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
Turn off the computer using the normal Windows shut down process.
After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
Turn on the computer. To start recovery, at the prompt press the F11 key. View Picture
In the Systems Restore Options dialog box, select Non-Destructive System Restore (Recommended), and then click Next. View Picture

With this, there is a hidden partition on your hdd to restore the default setting... Turn off your computer. Once it is off. Beside the power button, there is a small button. It has a headset logo or inverted U logo. Press and hold that until you can see windows loading files. then you just need to select one key recovery. select restore to initial back up or default settings. then wait.
Hi there, please restart your laptop when its booting press F8 key . You will find few option asking for selection. Select that by using up/down arrow key. Select " Last know good configuration" & press Enter. Next page asking for selecting operating system, for example: windows vista or Windows XP etc. Just select the operating system & press Enter again. ( Hope your laptop showing only one operating system ). Your laptop will start normally. If again that's blue error screen come then remove the RAM, clean it by soft napkin, Fix it back on ram slot & on power button. If nothing changes then format the Operating system & reinstall again.
Hard Drive error on the Disk most likely... Try to go to Windows "Safe Mode"... pressing F5 before you see the XP Logo and after you see the system information screens. Once in safe mode... run ScanDisk.
Open My Computer | Right Click C Drive | Left Click Properties | Tools Tab Run Check Disk for Errors... also check mark both boxes.
Is your laptop one that is included in the recall/free warranty repair service? Check it here.... there are a LOT of known issues with those HP laptops!! http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277&printable=no&encodeUrl=true&
go to www.ubuntu.com download the cd image that is suitable for your laptop but USE THE VERSION 8 NOT 9
star your computer with the cd inserted
when ubuntu is loaded verify if you can browse your hdd if not your hdd is toasted
if yoes you will need to use your recovery disk that came with your laptop but WARNING YOUR RECOVERY DISK IS DATA DESTRUCTIVE
if you dont have your recovery disk use any windows install cd (xp , vista or se7en)
go to http://www.gateway.com/worldwide/ to get your new driver
of your hdd is toasted buy a new one and go to a pc shop to make it replaced
try pressing f8 when you load vista and then select start normally if that doest not work and gives you the same error then restart and press F12 as soon as you see the dell logo, put in the vista installation disk that you got with the laptop and select boot with disk option.
try and repair or the recovery option .
NOTE : IT IS RECOMMENDED TO TAKE BACK UP OF YOUR FILES BEFORE USING THE RECOVERY OPTION .
While booting up, just after BIOS lists computer peripherals (prior to WIndows logo), press F8 repeatedly. In the menu pick Safe Mode (Command Prompt). If the blue screen of death doesn't appear, type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. This might fix some hard disk issues that were preventing normal boot up.
