2000-0146 err code - Dell PC Laptops

Answers :


\015\012 know this is not what you will want to hear, but according to the Dell Support site, error code 2000-0146 indicates: DST Log contains previous error(s). This means that the hard drive is failing and needs to be replaced. ASAP is best.

If\015\012you can login to windows ,I would suggest that you backup anything on\015\012the current drive that want to move to the new drive. If the computer \015\012is under warranty, contact Dell Support and they should ship you a new\015\012drive. If there is no warranty remaining, you will need to purchase a\015\012similar type of drive.

Once you have the new drive, install it\015\012and then reinstall your software. It should go more quickly if you can\015\012use the recovery CDs that were shipped with the computer originally.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
