It's possible that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. That's going to require a Windows DVD.

Dell PC's have built-in hardware diagnostics. I think it's F11 after you see the Dell Logo. I suggest you try them before replacing the disk.

It's possible to order a new hard drive from Dell that contains a copy of Windows.

Good Luck
Thank you for the help But I ran a diagnostic on it even the extra 30 minutes at the end and everything check out okay need Windows to check out if it will work I had. Windows 7XP and went to windows 10 then a few weeks after that it crashed
