DELL Inspiron 1525 with Vista Not Starting Windows...

Hello,

I have a DELL Inspiron 1525 Laptop Computer. I shut down irregularly
yesterday, and now, when I try to start it up, I get a message
stating:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Windows Error Recovery

You have two options:

Launch Startup Repair (Recommended)
Launch Windows Normally

When I try either option it takes FOREVER, and I never get back into
Windows Vista. With the first option it just brings up a progress
status bar like it is doing something, then the screen goes blank
(perhaps a timeout on the laptop). For the second option it just
brings up the progress status bar, and it seems like it is doing
something....but after hours it is still showing that progress bar.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong and how I can remedy this situation?

Thanks
Sam

From what I can gather, it maybe a hard drive problem. It maybe going bad,
or gone bad. When some drives go bad they take forever to read because
they're constantly trying to recover from a errors. RMA it, if it's still
under warrantee.
