It's most likely a failing hard drive with bad sectors - to confirm, F12 at powerup, boot to the Dell diagnostics, and run the extended hard drive test.
If the drive fails under system warranty, record the error and call Dell - ask for a preimaged replacement.
If it fails out of system warranty, you can purchase any 2.5" 9.5 mm SATA notebook drive as a replacement.
Had the same problem today. I managed to fix it by booting from the CD [Vista] and make like your going to install windows. Then look at the bottom of the window and click system restore - to an earlier Date. It turned out that Windows had updated itself and corrupted the log in.
Restarted and all good.
