Follow-up on Dell Inspiron 8100 problem

I followed your instructions to restart my laptop in the safe mode. Below is the message I received:
Windows running in safe mode. To proceed to work in safe mode, click yes. If you prefer to use system restore to restore your computer to a previous state, click no.
What should I do now?

Ok,Please go for a system restore.But remember it will restore your Pc back to a previous state when it is used to work without any problems.So that means all your data is going to be erased and be restored to that date when it used to work properly.

How to fix error code 2000-0142


Did you try booting your computer in Safe mode to check if you receive this error message?
1. Use F8 while restarting the computer.
2. Under Windows Advanced Boot Options select Safe mode and hit Enter.
Check if you receive this error message in Safe mode.

It seems like your drive might be corrupted. If your computer is still under warranty, I would suggest you to contact them to get a replacement. But before you contact them, let us see whether Check disk utility would make a way to boot windows succesfully or not.

If you've Windows Vista Operating System disc, then try running the check disk utility from Windows Recovery Environment.

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type the following command and press enter.
Chkdsk /r

Once your machine has finished repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press ENTER to restart your laptop.

You can also try typing the following command if Check disk fails to fix the issue. At the same command prompt, type fixboot and press enter.

For your information: If you've a Dell Laptop, then according to Dell, the error code 2000-0142 is a Drive Self Test failed error code.

That usually denotes a Hard Drive error, or the like. All is not lost though. Try this..... Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems there may only be one or two to choose from. just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you.
