Hi guys,

Hoping someone can help,

I have a Dell inspiron 1545 running Vista, I have not touch any hardware other than add 1gb of ram.

Long story short, the computer does not boot up any more, I believe it is a hard drive problem as I ran diagnostics tests and got 2 errors on hard drive.

Error 1042 and error 1046.

I have tried to boot from my vista disk with no joy.

I am just wondering is there anyway I can format the drive? and if I can will it make any difference or am I looking at buying a new hard drive?

Thanks for any advice or help in advance.
