System Recovery Problem with Windows 7 on Dell Inspiron 1545
I would be very grateful for any advice to help me recover my laptop, please.

It is a Dell Inspiron 1545. It came loaded originally with Windows XP, and I upgraded to Windows 7 at a later date. I do not have a system restore disc and have exhausted the system restore options that appear on-screen.

The information onscreen reads:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: STARTUPREPAIROFFLINE
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Probem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21201054
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 24
Problem Signature 07: CorruptFile
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

I am at a loss and would very much appreciate your help.

What, if any, XP and Windows 7 installation and recovery media do you have?

Thanks for responding. None, I'm afraid.

I was wondering if there is anything I can download online?

In the meantime, I have managed to get 'into' the machine via pressing F12 during startup and have run the "Cannot boot the OS" tests.

It has come up with "Error Code 0F00:1344 Msg: DISK - BLOCK 65909370: Can't read, replace disk"

Does this mean my hard drive is dead?

At best I guess that it means the hard drive has a serious problem. Could try the diagnostics supplied by the hard drive manufacturer.

You may be able to purchase XP Recovery disks from Dell. You can purchase Windows 7 online as well as in stores.

How is it that you upgraded to Windows 7 but have no reinstallation DVD?
