Hum now I found this ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 - NotebookCheck.net Tech so there is a HD 5870 inside.

Now the thing that is puzzling me is why that Dell driver list has three for AMD including a BIOS one and also one for NVidia?

Now having seen remarks that the BIOS should be updated with great caution did you do all three of those driver updates?

Sorry for the delay. Just did the AMD driver one I took a screenshot of.

2 weeks and it still won't boot up. Should I try the other drivers for my video card? I'm reluctant to do a chkdsk /f, as that's the last thing I did before it completely died the last time.
I can't get any work done, I can't edit my resume to apply to a new job, I can't do much other than say what I can't do.

How about doing a "straight" chkdsk? without the /f Disk Check

Ran the scan. Didn't know how to post its findings, so I typed it all out in Notepad. It's recommending a /F scan, but again, that's what seemed to frag my last hard drive.

I'd do the install, but I don't want to delegate my computer to FUBAR status. I'm going to have a chat with my parents, and see if I can send it in to somebody who professionally knows what they're doing (read as: not me). I was wondering if I should send it into Dell or see if Best Buy could help. I've sent it into Dell before, and they've even had a tech come out and work on it. I don't know if it's that it's turning into a Frankencomputer, or if it's something I'm doing unknowingly, but it keeps breaking down on me. I'm definitely thinking about saving up to buy myself a new laptop.
I'm going to do a 100% copy and paste of my C:\ to my portable hard drive, just in case they need to nuke it or replace it.
