Error Code 0141 means no drive detected.
If that's your problem then you should take out the harddrive out and try it on another laptop or buy an external enclosure.
You can get them for $10
If it won't run on another computer that means the harddrive is bad but if it does run then it means you have a serious issue within the laptop componants.

You will need to call the manufacturer and probably have a new drive installed. When i researched this code it came up with a lot of dell forums and everyone recommended to have the drive replaced since this means it is probably about o go out for good. Still i would check in the bios and make sure the drives are enabled and in the correct boot sequence also check and see if there are any non bootable disks in the drives/removable memory

My dell 5125 indicates internal hard disk drive not found. it asked me to reseat the drive...than it indicates no bootable devices- i'm strike F1 to retry to boot and F2 for setup utility....nothing...


Try accessing setup utility and verify there if it still recognizes your hard drive, if not then that means your hard drive had crashed. If you have important files on the drive, you can try to recover it by going to a local service provider and have your files recovered, and of course you have to get a new hard drive for your dell.

Dell error code 0141


Error code 0141. Msg: Error code 2000-0141. Msg: No drive detected.

This is caused by the intel chipset overheating.
Your drive is usually ok, but the chip controlling the drive is too hot to function properly. Try blowing your CPU fan out with compressed air, then start using a laptop cooler to keep it cool and this problem should go away.

The hard drive has failed. If you're in warranty, contact Dell for a warranty replacement of the drive - it's a customer-replaceable part.
If you're out of warranty, look on ebay for a good deal on a brand new hard drive for your Dell Inspiron 1525

Juice got spilled on my laptop, now when it starts i get an error code 0141 No drive detected. what should i do now? Error 0141 Msg Code 2000-0141 No drive detected at start up : no bootable devices Help...


you should have stopped using it first...get the battery out and have it dry in an airconditioned room for several days...I know you can't afford that..water is a sort of conductor and it short-circuits sensitive electronics.

No bootable device found.try reseating hard drive,error code 0141


Make sure you fixed the HDD properly..In some cases you need to push a little harder. See if any pins had been bent, if so straighten it, without breaking it.

Can't start windows: Hard Drive - No drive detected


The laptop cannot see/detect the hard drive. This means the hard drive is faulty or it needs reaeating.
Remove the hard drive and inserting again, then reboot the laptop, if it still cannot detect the hard drive then it is faulty.
You need to purchase a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive.

D610 DST Short Status Test Fail


It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.
