Can you boot into Safe Mode?

How to start Windows in Safe Mode

If so, run Check-Disk.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After its finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

You can also remove the hard drive...temporarily attach it as a secondary drive in a known good system...and run chkdsk /r on that system.

:thumbsup: (Look what I found!!)Thanks for your replies people I appreciated them. At first I couldn't even get the OS repair disk to work but for some reason it decided to (Dell). I ran FIXMBR AND FIXBOOT for good measure. Well one of them worked. It finally booted and appears to be fine at the moment. I also ran CHKDSK and it showed multiple errors and attempted to repair some. But, this is still indicative (in my mind at least) that my hard drive may be dying and needs replacing so I'll back up and replace and hope for the best. Again thanks to all that responded.
Have a good one.

P.S. No I couldn't boot at all Budapest. It would show the Windows icon for about a second and go straight to the blue screen and that was that, but thanks.

If you suspect that the hdd is in trouble, find out who the manufacturer is and go to their web site and download their diagnostic tool. You will need to burn this to a CD in order to boot from it.

Do that after your Back up. It maybe still usable as a Slave Drive, but for the Cost of a New HDD these days, I certainly would not trust it as a Primary Drive ever again.
