It's your hard disk, as noted by the error warning that is telling you that it is your hard disk.

Hard disk drives are mechanical, meaning that they experience wear-and-tear over time.  Usually, a persistent ticking noise will occur before the drive dies.  How old was it?

Try reinstalling Windows. But, a file error tells me the HDD is going and unable to read data properly.

You in the USA? Pay shipping and I can mail you a 160GB 2.5" laptop hard drive that works. It's too old/small/slow to be of any use to me anymore. I can send it formatted NTFS ready to go for a Windows installation. If you're outside the US then shipping won't make this offer viable, sorry.

i am in the us and you dont have to do that, i know that theres more to this hard drive story than i know, i defrag every day and it always shows as 0% or atleast 3%, and then when i plug my laptop hard drive into my desktop because its acting funny to do some checkups, and now they both are broken, i have a feeling that it could be some unwanted software

Alright, well PM me if you end up needing it. It's just running Linux in the basement, nothing I can't re-allocate a different hard drive to do.

Hard drive failures can be spontaneous or they can be a long slow decline toward failure, any thing can fail like that. I've had all different kinds of PC hardware fail over the years, I think that's part of why I have so many spare/old parts laying around now.

Well, google the error codes and see what turns up as likely problems or check the Dell website to see if they have definitions for those error codes. Dell has really good documentation most of the time, I really like working with Dell stuff just for that reason.

 

Also a more descriptive thread title sure can help.
