Ok, so I wanted to wipe out my hard drive so I used killdisk. After I burned killdisk onto a cd I stuck it into my computer and restarted like it told me, and it went through the wipe out process and glitched at 2% done, it instantly turns to a black screen and says Error loading Operating system. So, I restarted my computer and it shows the blue Dell at first then it turned to a black screen and says Error loading Operating system. I have tried BIOs and getting into setup, I have tried bootdisk.com but I think I have figured out that it wouldn't load the cd drive even after I choose select that drive, it keeps going back to the same screen with the error. Please help me!

I ran the diagonostics here is what I got:
Primary SATA
Drive 0: No Device

Secondary SATA
Drive 0: No Device

Primary IDE
Drive 0: Samsung SP0802N/P - PASS
Drive 1: No Device

Secondary IDE
Drive 0: HL-DT-ST GCE-8487B - Diagnostic not supported
Drive 1: No Device


What do I do?!?!?!?!? ahhhhhh

Why did you try to wipe your hard drive?

See Dell Instructions

I'd say that your hard drive is troubled...but I would download the appropriate Samsung diagnostic and run the long test from the diagnostic CD.

I tried the HUTIL, my PC it wouldn't even start the disc. I was cleaning the computer out for my mom bc it was really bogged down and slow and had a lot of programs on it that she didn't use, I have done this many times before but never had anything like this happen.... so I don't' know.

Sounds to me like killdisk may have blown away the boot sector at a minimum

If your intent was to reload XP anyway, I would have it delete and recreate the partition as part of the installation process
In the beginning there was the command line.
