Dropped laptop, Error codes 2000-0142 and 2000-0123

Last Sunday I tripped on a cord and knocked my laptop over. It fell into my chair. I picked it back up and everything seemed fine. A few hours later I was playing a game when the computer froze up and Windows Explorer crashed. I don't quite remember what happened then. I believe I turned the computer off and then booted it back up. When I turned the power back on, though, the computer failed to boot. My only options were to launch normally or launch startup repair, neither of which did anything other than send me to a blank login screen (startup repair then worked, but could not help). I ran a diagnostic and came up with error codes 2000-0142 and 2000-0123. Then I reseated the memory modules and Hard Drive cable, but I am still getting these errors. I don't know how to fix this. Any possible solution would be welcomed, I just want to exhaust my options before having to buy new hardware. Also, I believe my warranty has expired.

SOURCE: Error code 2000-0146 in device Hard Drive 1

I just had this same problem a few weeks ago. This error code means you have a bad sector in your hard drive which is cheap and easy to fix. You just need to unscrew the bottom screws holding your hard drive in and place the old cover on the new hard drive you buy. Screw that new one in and reload your programs. Your computer will be as good as knew after that. Look on your invoice to get the hard drive specs so you can buy a new one or just enter your service tag on the dell site and check out the specs of the ones they offer for upgrade.

Pronto m61 sure step Unit stopped and on power backup would give 9 flashes as error code. Powered off and back on and all was normal again. It's done this 3-4 times it's last 2 weekes. Then the last...

ceejay a 9 flash error code usually means a brake fault. But a brake fault will not cause the chair not to power up. Check all your connections especially where the cable comes out the back of the joystick and where that same cable plugs into the cable to the controller. Sometimes the switch on the joystick fails to make good contact with the circuit board in the joystick and you can try pushing it in different spots to see if will come on. Also check the circuit breaker to make sure it hasn't tripped. If you have a digital voltmeter you can set it on 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes on the charger port located under the front of the joystick. You should be reading the battery voltage and fully charged get 25-27 volts. If you don't get any reading then there is a problem in the cable or joystick or power from the batteries. You didn't say if Medicare paid for your chair. If they did they will pay for most of the repair costs. If they did you can contact Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have a tech come out to check your chair. Hope this helps you

Its most likely is not the switch. It is most likely the cord though. Due to the excess strain on the cord it has probably cut through the rubber coating on the wire and connected to the frame and grounded the hot lead. Fix the cord and you may have it handled.

HP Pavilion dv6810us does not start...

since the system got dropped off, different components would have been affected. From the information that you have provided, the LCD and motherboard appears to be two of the affected components. Since it is difficult to determine all the components that may have been affected by the accident, I would suggest contacting HP for support and ask if there is a repair center where you can take your computer for thorough testing. If you have an HP diagnostics utility, connect an external monitor to your computer and run the diagnostics. Note any error codes of beep codes which can help isolate the situation.

DVD player dropped, now Wrong Disc error

Bad news ** it may have damaged the Laser or knocked it out of alignment. A Electronic Tech would have to do that kind of repair.
Depending on what brand it is it may not be cost effective to repair. If it was made in China there will probably be no parts available

Power pin fell off inside of Magellan Roadmate 3000T

I managed to solder my connector back in place. The ground trace broke away from the board so I had to install a jumper to ground. I put RTV on the connector to secure it after the repair.
Worked great for a few weeks until it was dropped again and lost power, something else has a broken connection.
