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.

So you are reporting.

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.

Have you ....

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.
