      First thing to do is to use the Dell Diagnostics CD-ROM (this is what
      support will tell you as well). The CD is bootable, otherwise I think
      you (or a friend) can downlaod a (windows) executable from the Dell
      site to create a diagnostics floppy.




      I recently had problems with my HDD, and used the diagnostics CD as
      instructed by Dell which then identified a problem somewhere. A day
      or two later Dell replaced the faulty HDD.
