      It may be time to disable HIBERNATION.

      But there is missing information here about the laptop. Specifically the OS.

      As to getting onto this laptop my usual workaround is to boot ANY current Linux. We don’t need to learn Linux! Read http://tips.oncomputers.info/archives2004/0401/2004-Jan-11.htm

      Now that we have access to the HDD on the PC we can use the file manager to delete HIBERFIL.SYS and force a full boot.

      Remember I take it you did your research and need my way of dealing with this issue.

        Hi,
        I m facing problems with this dell model. Please guide me about speed Wi-Fi network or key board. its speed is very slow. Or guide me about latest or best Dell laptop. My question here is old model is good or new model? Should i change my dell model yes or not. Because i don’t know about laptops?

          Don’t bury your question in a discussion about something else. Please make a new post for your question. And, while doing that, be more clear about what you mean with slow WiFi and slow keyboard. And tell about other problems you might have.

          Remember there is no “best” laptop. There only are laptops that are better suited to what you want to do with it, and laptops that aren’t so good for that (an office laptop for gaming) or too expensive (a gaming laptop for office work, or the latest model while a refurbished one from 3 years ago would be fine).

        That you booted another OS from USB, deleted the hiberfil.sys and trying to boot from the HDD it still does this?

        Sometimes I find folk that don’t follow instructions and for them it’s usually a trip to the shop.

      tried to go into “Safe Mode” as the BIOS first starts to load? Did you make any recent updates to the laptop ? You might try contacting Dell directly. Could be a failed/failing hard disk from your description. Not a chance a 5 year old computer is still under warranty. I suggest that you take it to a computer repair shop for evaluation.

      I think you should contact Dell. The symptoms you mention usually portend an HDD failure work or SSD.
