Answers :

ALWAYS CHECK THE WARRANTY BEFORE DOING IT YOURSELF
\015\012If this is a Dell computer , it indicates a hard drive failure. if so here is the solution:
\015\012Look at the bios and see if the hard drive is detected.
\015\012 To get to the BIOS, when you turn on the system, you will be confronted with a black screen with the dell symbol in the middle, if you look at the top left of the screen, you should see something like
Press F2 for boot options
Press F12 for setup
\015\012Keep tapping the F2 or F12 key for boot options. this will take you into the BIOS.
\015\012Check also that it says enabled
\015\012Next see if you can boot the dell diagnostics partition. {F12}, then select diagnostics, once you have the diagnostics available run the memory tests and the hard drive test.
\015\012you should get a report when it finishes looking something like this:
\015\012DST Short Test: Failed
Error Code: 1000-0146
Msg: Unit 2 : DST LOC Contains previous error(s)

READ TEST:
0F00: 0244
MSG Block: 57301297

VERIFY TEST:
0F00:1A44
MSG Block: 57301297
\015\012 if there are more than two errors ide suggest a new hard drive. BUT TO SAVE YOUR DATA BEFORE ------>Do you have anything important? if you do, you will need to do a repair install of XP and get your files before the hard drive fails completely. Use the service tag to obtain full specs of the computer at dells website. This hard drive has previous errors, and has generated new ones. It looks like it is getting ready to fail. You may be able to use a xp disk to perform an operating system repair, the dell operating system CD will do this also. Here is a link: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm If you follow the directions exactly, you will not lose any files. Please continue to post about this issue, and operate this computer as little as possible.

Let me throw a twist in the works.
\015\012
\015\012I am getting the same error/failure. When I try to boot I get as far as the Windows Load Bar and it just sits there never moving forward.
\015\012
\015\012Heres the twist. When I remove the hard drive and put it in another laptop, it boots up and runs like a champ. The drive is obviously not failing, if it were, it would fail on every laptop it was placed in. So if it works great in one and will not boot in another, whats the issue.
\015\012
\015\012Any suggestions.
