Dell demension 8250 pc running xp home. western digital 120g drive.
When the pc boots I get Dell disk monitoring has detected that drive 0 is operating outside of normal specifications press F1 to continue.
I press F1 and the boot screen comes up. If I choose normal boot the Windows XP screen comes up and the green status bar moves but windows never loads.
If i choose boot to safe mode or boot to dos I get a blue screen with Stop c0000218 regustry file failure. The registry cannot load the hive file \system\system32\config\software or its log or alternate.
If I choose edi diagnostics the drive fails to code of 4. I can't find anything on code 4.
