Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Could be a serious problem.

\015 The computer will crash all of the sudden, restart, and then show this message on a black screen:"Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check the boot path and disk hardware."Does this mean my hard drive is fried?? If so, what can I do to fix it? Thanks, and please help,Tyler\015

Answers :

Next time you get it running, right click on my computer>explore, click on 'C' drive, right click>properties>tools tab, then click error checking, if the option to choose repair found faults, choose it, then the system will run a drive check.

\015\012It may take a few hours as it sounds as though you have a bad sector on your drive, back up all docs immediately after the system as run a check and hopefully is up and running again
