Having problems with your Dell Studio 17 Laptop ?

Dell Studio17 simply will not start up properly.

\015 I purchased my Dell Studio 17 in August, when I left for college. It worked great while I was away, and was fantastic the first month or so after I came home. Then out of the blue, I get a message and a black screen saying there was a disk error, and the laptop needs to scan my disk. I let it do this, and it goes through and then restarts. When it restarts, it either gets stuck at the screen with the green loading bar, or goes to the log-on page. Sometimes it lets me log on, but it gets stuck at the blue 'Welcome' screen, and just says 'Welcome' forever. Other times, the 'welcome' never comes up, and the screen simply stays blue-green. I really don't have the money to buy a new lap top right now, is there any way I can fix mine?I don't mind at all losing all the files or anything like that. I just want my laptop to work again. \015
