Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook ?

BOOTMGR is missing error, Tried reformatting, but computer shuts off randomly.

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I have a Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook, and lately it's been very slow, until today I turned it on and got a BOOTMGR is missing. Before that I tried reformatting, because I had system files missing and my OS wouldn't load. But, everytime I try to reformat my computer keeps shutting down at different points in the process. What should I do? Please help!\015

Answers :

Your problem is not your OS its your hard drive, when hard drives go bad (bad sectors) they will almost always corrupt the OS. You could pay someone like 50 bucks to run a diagnostic on your hard drive but that is about half the cost of a new one. I would replace that and I am positive it will fix your issue. Unfortunately there is no way to see this coming.
