Most likely you can't...The SMART read stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. If this test fails the hard drive will likely crash soon so backup what information you can to a CD-R or flash drive.

Raw Read Error Rate problem! How can I get it fixed?


The Smart features on hard drives are for hardware diagnostic purposes. This is a sign that your drive may be failing. I would backup any files just in case. Then consider replacing the drive.

My HD SAMSUNG HM500JI not work any more bad sector that cany be fix...!!!


Well.. I'm SAD to inform you..your drive has encountered a serious error.

There's a couple of options..none of which you will like.

Drives (SMART) report errors, but sadly don't fix anything. Once a bad-sector has been encountered, its usually an indication of major failure (google/39% of all drives w/bad sectors major failure..etc)

Your options.. Is your data super important--if so, STOP using the drive, send it to a DRC (Data recovery Center), expect to spend $600-1k for the data.

If you've backedup, good news-- drives are cheap.. buy another, plus your drive into tthe 2nd slot, copy off what you can..

the drive itself is having a major failure (meaning it cannot relocate the bad sectors any longer, hence the smart failure)-- meaning-- drives "TRY" to relocate (when they detect failures, they'll move the data else where, mark the bad area, and use a new spot)... Your drive has probably done that.. ALOT. And now... it's gone critical.

BEST solution for you, to save $$ and time.. but a drive ($80-150 bucks)... install your os... put the other drive on the other cable, copy off what you can..and call it a day.

A DRC won't do much more to be honest... if its SUPER critical, contact www.deepspar.com and see if they will recommend you to a DRC locally to you, or do it them selves...again $$$

Bro, when you see "SMART overall-health self-assessment test result: FAILED!" then this hard drive is either dead or dying. There isn't much you can do other than replace it now.

If the DST from the Utility Partition does not indicate a failure of the drive, we consider the error to have been corrected and the drive does not need to be replaced.

Dell Dimension 2400 What is Targeted Read Test WHD-20-2RQ and Smart Short Self Test WHD16-FTD and how do I fix it if it said they failed


These are results of two sections of Dell Diagnostics tests which can be run by pressing F10 at startup.

You would have to watch them run to see what has failed during the test.

From Targeted Read Test WHD-20-2RQ failed, could be failure to read RAM (memory), CD/DVD Drive, or Hard Drive.

Something failing within Smart Short Self Test WHD16-FTD could literally be anything within the computer, without seeing what has actually failed during the test.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 has Samsung Model MP0603H hard drive. The computer was working fine till this morning when it would not boot. I ran diagnostic using the Dell CD and the results stated: Error Code...


Those codes all apply to the hard drive itself..

Replacing the hard drive is all you should have to do.

Below is a link to a brand new hard drive that will work in your Inspiron 6000

I get the error code 2000-0146 only when i run the f12 diagnostic


The 2000-0146 error code indicates a read/write failure of the hard drive. There is at least 1 sector that is failing on the drive. While it is working at the moment, the drive is failing and will over time degrade and eventually fail completely. Backup any important data, then replace the drive.
