Been battling this Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop on and off for couple months now. This
is my most recent post, which ended up being solved because I purchased a refurbished hard disk from a reputable online retailer. I activated the new Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit software over the phone and I was off and running. Two days later, it started acting funny. It would shut off suddenly. Finally I had to run startup repair muiltiple times and it said it couldn't be fixed with startup repair. The following are the pics I took of the error boxes:
If it is indeed the "new" refurbished hard disk I can still return it for another one. Does that appear to be the problem to you?
