I have a dell optiplex 210L running XP Pro. It will not boot al all. When I start it, it gives me the load screen and then goes black. I have tried everything I know to do and everything suggested here. I was able to connect the hard drive to another pc using a SATA to USB connector and get all my important data off the drive. I put the drive back in and was able to hit the F12 key and boot to the utilities partition. I choose to do an extended diagnostics scan. It was going good until the hard drive test. I got the following error code, Error code 650F-0244 unrecoverable data error. Is there a fix or is the drive toast? I would really like to fix it just as a matter of principal now and so I know what to do if I see this again.

I suggest following the guide at http://support.dell.com/support/topics/glo...0401E0A55174AE6.

The code you gave may be any number of things, IMO...running the self-test should provide a conclusive result.
