So sorry for the delay.
I must say your hard drive is damaged. You must buy a new one. That means we must first remove the hard drive and then put the new hard drive in it.
Please visit this here
and go to page 25 (Replacing a hard drive). Please follow the instructions to replace your hard drive. If you have any questions, just ask.
please visit this site here
and go to page 43/44. Please read the instructions carefully
. OK, when you bought that Laptop there should be two Driver Disks:
- Dell Operating System media
- Dell Drivers and Utilities media
If you don't
have these CD's please download all Drivers to an USB from here
. (. You can download these drivers by clicking on Download File. Do that for every driver. After you have downloaded all these drivers please move the files to an USB Stick.)
Then go over to this instructions here
. Please ignore Step 2 since you can not back up any data more. Then follow the steps carefully.
OK, after the Vista Installation please start the PC. Hopefully everything worked well and you are able to log in. If so, we need to install our drivers. Since we discussed about two ways how to do that, please take note, that only one option is the correct one for you.
I.) Insert the Drivers disc and follow the onscreen instructions to install the drivers.
II.) Insert the USB stick and start one setup, then the other , etc .... and install the drivers.
When you are finished with that please install a Firewall and an Antivirus.
