Having problems with your Dell Latitude E6400 Laptop ?

Error 2000-0146 My disk has 3 partitions. The first 40Go, the second nearly the same and the third may be 150go. I've merged the first and the second partitions. After 2 days, Vista informed me that i have disk problem. Now, Pc doesn't launch and the error code is 2000-0146


Answers :

Error code 0146 means bad hard drive. You will need to replace the hard drive. Dell can ship you one if the laptop is still under warranty.
Probably need to use your recover disk- unless you are running different OSs on other partitions, probably no reason to partition the hd. unless you want a partition for backup purposes- better to get a usb external drive to use for backup, in case your primary hd fails!
merging probably confused your vista OS. may have messed up your boot sector. might think about W7- you may be able to get a free upgrade!! check it out!
(after you get vista working again!)
good luck!
