Question about Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook
Hope you can help. So here's the problem, my dell keeps loading the dell loading screen, then beeps like crazy until i push any key. then it loads a white bar in the bottom, after being on a black screen for a while, then it goes to the windows xp loading screen then it starts over.
I pushed f12 and ran the diagnostics and it Failed the DST Short Status Test. The error code is 1000-0146. the message says Unit 0: DST Log contains previous errors.
Anything I can do to fix it?
The error refers to a bad Hard Drive. You need to call up Dell to have the Hard Drive replaced. Make sure to start contacting a Local Pc Shop to help you back up files from your Hard drive since Dell doesn't cater to backing up of data on any Hard Drive.

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
