    i can't log onto Windows

    and almost every time i turn on my computer it starts a weird disk check which takes forever
    and half the time after i log on, instead of the above images, the evil blue screen will pop up and say that Windows encountered an error and must close, and starts a dump of physical memory

    anybody have any idea what the problem might be? thanks a lot for any help!!!
    let me know if any more information is needed :)

    Try this:
    Unplug ALL USB things.
    Start up the PC and tap on the F8 key.
    Boot into save modem if you can.

    It maybe your HDD is failing.
    Can you borrow or buy another?
    Do you have the original install CD? You may need it.

    What model is you Dell desktop? How old is it?

        Siema  ;D

        tak moge, but only after i do a repair install
        then, if i shut down, and then turn back on to log on again, the same problems occur, and i must do the whole repair install process over again to be able to get into an account

          If repair fix the things, and everything goes bad again after restart, I'd...

            You don't have to. The programs from the link, I provided will create bootable CD.

              Basically.
              You need to know, what is the manufacturer of your drive, first.
              Go to Device Manager (while in Safe Mode), and see, what it says under Disk Drives
              Let me know, and we'll go from there.

                Now, you need to know, if it's SCSI, or IDE drive (two different tools). Device Manager should tell you.
