Dell Inspiron 1545 won't boot at all

Hi,

I've had this problem before and I don't remember how I fixed it...but I was in the middle of downloading MS SQL 2012 but had to run..so I forced a shut down of my computer..Oops, I know.

So now my computer won't boot in any mode. Last time this happened...when I finally got the computer back on, I made backup cd (6 total). How can I get my computer to boot? What should I do?

Sounds like a corrupted file system to me. See her on how to run chkdsk:

How to run chkdsk or System File Checker (SFC) from the Recovery Console
  • Boot your Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD
  • When you see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", press Enter
  • At the "Install Windows" screen, click on Repair your computer at lower left
  • At the System Recovery Options screen, make note of the drive letter assigned to your boot drive (normally C and click Next
  • At the Chose a Recovery Tool window, click on Command Prompt. You will be sitting at X:\Sources directory
  • Run chkdsk or SFC
    • If you did not note the drive letter of your boot disk, you can enter bcdedit and look at the osdevice line to see what it is.
    • For chkdsk, type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter (use the letter from above if not C.
    • For sfc, type sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows and press Enter (use the letter from above)
Let either run to completion undisturbed. Vista or Windows 7:
If you don't have a install DVD, you can download a legal copy here:
Windows 7 Direct Download Links Download Official Windows Vista RTM with SP1 Setup Files (32-bit and 64-bit)
Make sure you get the same version you have installed: 32 or 64 bit; Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate.
