Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Error code 0146

\015 I have a dell Inspiron 1505 running windows XP. Last year the hard drive went out and had to be replaced because the hard drive was giving error code 0146. The new hard drive worked for about 6 months then would give me problems if I tried to install any windows updates (system restore would bring the system back). I turned the updates off and haven't had any issues. Now the error code is back. I can start the computer and my desktop shows up, but I cannot click on or select any of the icons. I am wondering if I do file a claim for the warranty on the hard drive and get it replaced, could there be something else happening with my comuter that is causing these erros?\015

Answers :

Alot of times when Dell replaces a hard drive, its usually one thats been refurbished and NOT brand new. Since you have been definitely been having issues with more then one of there hard drives, defiinitely call them back and have them walk you thru all the steps to verify and the once they verify it tell them because you have had lots of problems with hard drives in that unit to please make sure to ask that a BRAND NEW one is installed instead of a REFURBISHED one.

Hopefully they will do this seeing as how there has been lots of problems. Hope this info helps.
