Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Dell Inspiron 8200 won't continue start up

\015 Tried to power up, but just those 3 LED (for numlock, cap, scroll) lit on for a few seconds and then laptop shuts down. But when it tried to start up, sometimes a stop error message: 0x0000024 appear, sometimes it just hangs up. Please help, what is the cause? is it repairable?\015

Answers :

This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage\015\012in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or\015\012a corrupt ntfs.sys file).
\015\012
\015\012How do resovle the problem.
\015\012There are two ways,
\015\012
\015\0121, If you still can access Windows, try to disable any backup programs,\015\012virus scanning programs or disk defragmenter tools. Try also to run a\015\012hardware diagnostics tool to detect any errors your hard drive might\015\012have. And run chkdsk /r to detect and repair any file system structural\015\012damage.
\015\012
\015\0122, If you are unable to load Windows. Then you should try to access\015\012your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS\015\012(freeware). You can download it from http://www.geekswhoknow.com/files/ntfsinst.exe You will need a floppy disk.
\015\012
\015\012After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system,\015\012select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected\015\012option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem\015\012should go away after the disk has been repaired.
\015\012
\015\012Note! Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt\015\012beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to\015\012reformat the partition to be able to use it again.
\015\012

\015\012Good luck!
If I am reading this correctly, your computer will not boot from the disk you created on another system. Since you already have a boot disk. Go into the system BIOS and change the Default Boot Sequence. It is most likely set to boot from the hard drive first which will sometimes give you problems if the NTFS system is damaged. Change the sequence to boot from Floppy first. All this really does is force the system to try and boot from the floppy first and if nothing is there boot from the next device in the list.

You also want t omake sure you are using teh correct Disk Type. If your Floppy is set for 720KB for some reason and you are using a 1.44mb disk it will not work. There are also different types of floppies available. Make sure you are using a type that is compatible with your floppy. An HDD, High Density Drive, floppy will not work in a DS DD, Double Sided Double Density, drive which is the more common version.

If this is a Windows operating system use the installation CD to access repair functions and tools and get your system back up. It should start Automatically if you boot the system with the CD in the drive. Again if your system doesn't boot from teh CD you will need to make a change in your BIOS to tell it to boot from the CD first. Once teh system stops it Should show you a menu to choose what you want to do. Follow the on screen instructions to REPAIR your windows installation. If that doesn't work you can reboot and go throught the format and install process.

If your Drive is getting bad Sectors and causing these issues I recommend you replace the drive as soon as possible. Once the Hard Drive starts developing bad sectors they seem to grow no matter what you do so replacing the drive wil save you time and headache in the future.
