  1. Hi all, I bought my Dell Inspiron for £581 in October 2014. I had two callouts in the first two months to repair motherboard and wireless connectivity issues. Today the laptop has failed on restart with blue screen message "Unmountable boot volume". I have run startup diagnostic tests which indicate hard disk failure: Error code - 2000-0142 Validation - 85842 Looking this up on Dell diagnostic services returns the message: Hard disk drive running outside normal parameters - advise replacing disk drive. I believe that under the Sale of Goods Act I have a reasonable case to ask Dell to repair or meet the cost of repair. My problem is that I am not sure how to go about this. So far I have exchanged messages on Facebook. To be fair, this is at a very early stage, but I suspect this will be an interminable exchange of scripted responses! What I want is: - Diagnostics on current HDD. Online advice suggests that HDDs with failed boot sectors can be repaired. - If HDD cannot be repaired, then I would like: - Replacement HDD - Reinstallation of Windows 10 and Office software - Retrieval of data files where possible Any advice on how I should proceed, what I should expect Dell to offer, and what I should expect to pay for myself? Many thanks, Justin
