Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Error Code in Diagnostic 1000-0146 BUT MY COMPUTER WORKS?????

\015 So, the story goes, I have been having problems with my PCI expansion card slot not working, so I've looked every where for an answer, but have found nothing. But anyways, I decided to do a diagnostic of the device. So I started up the Diagnostic and it always does a Pre-boot System assessment. The assessment found that the "Start DST" failed and gave me the error code 1000-0146. I looked this code up in multiple locations, every post was someone who got this code because their computer was not starting up, not booting, auto restarting, or somthing of that sort. And every answer I found said that this error message means the Drive has failed. But... here's the wierd part. I am typing on the computer that i did the test on, it works perfectly fine (other than the Card Slot). It makes no sense to me at all.... And if anyone knows what the problem could be with my PCI expansion slot, it would be really nice to know that too.\015

Answers :

The 1000-0146 is a diagnostic result indicating a failing hard drive. Just because the drive fails diagnostics, doesn't mean it will not function and is may run for an extended period before if becomes unusable. But take this as a warning and backup any important data you have on that drive NOW.
\015\012As far as your PCMCIA Card slot not working.
  1. Ensure it is enabled in the BIOS and you have no driver errors in Device Manager.

  3. If those all check out, replace the card cage: http://cgi.ebay.com/DELL-LATITUDE-D600-PCMCIA-SLOT-CAGE-CMD3BE7632_W0QQitemZ280331231481QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLaptops_Nov05?hash=item280331231481&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50
