Hello,
My ex gave my son an old dell inspiron 600m it was working fine until today it will turn on but gives a warning that the computer was not shut down right or had a power failure and gives choices of safe mode etc but when I click on those it does nothing. What can I do??

Either Windows is corrupt or there's a bad sector on the hard drive -- more likely the former. You need the Windows XP(?) disc in order to restart the computer from the CD drive and attempt to repair (or re-install) Windows.
