SOURCE: Smart drive failed during diagnostic test

Bad sectors are starting to show up on the hard drive. Thats what the smartdrive program is for, its checks the hard drive to see if there are any bad spots or potential bad spots on the platter inside of the hard drive.

It will definitely have to be replaced. Replace it with a new one and if you can't then at least replace it with a known good used one.

Get a new drive in a caddy and boot your computer within safe mode (press F8 as it loads).
Copy all you can to the new drive.
If you cannot do that, buy a replacement hard drive and load your system disk in the CD Rom drive booting from it. When the system is loaded and running, power the desktop down, fit the old drive and set the jumper as SLAVE.
Boot up your desktop and there will be what is left of your data on drive D. Copy all you require before it is too late!
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: inspiron 530s diagnosic test error on hdd: smart short self test - timed out

No your hard drive is just fine.

It sounds like a variant of the S.M.A.R.T. HDD virus. You can try to remove it with the software I list below, but if that doesn't get rid of it you will have to bring it in to a pc shop that speciallizes in virus/malware removal for a set price. Especially if it has started removing your icons already.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

First try malwarebytes anti-malware it's FREE and it's here:

Make sure to select the non-pro version.

Install and use TDSSKiller also (Also FREE):
http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=6895&file=1&evp=6ee854ea7c22f46734f10d4e193d17ce

You can try Superantispyware as well (Also FREE):
http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5116&file=15&evp=4b877f10ddee47cecae8038a2f67054e

If you don't have a good anti-virus program already you can use Avira. It's FREE as well, just make sure to configure it to "Select All" Threat categories. Here it is:

SOURCE: R707 Fails diagnostic test 10 (strobe)

I found my answer to this on another board. Remove the battery and SD card. Use a paperclip to press in the small siver dot above the + sign for about 10 seconds. This resets the firmware.  It worked for me, hopefully it will work for you too.

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.

Diagnostic test failed


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.
