Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
I have Dell Latitude D610. All of sudden every thing froze on the computer due to which I had to switch my computer off. On turning it on I got a message the my computer failed to read the hard disk. I did the diagnostic test. It failed on DST Short Status Test. The two error codes that I got were 1000-0146 and 1000-0141.
Msg: Unit 0:IDE Status Failed. Status bytes 64 Control Code = 1. Msg = No additional sense information
Msg: No drive dtected
On running diagnostic test from the diagnostics and utilities CD provided along with the computer I performed Express Test. Got the following Errors
Error Code 4EOF:1344
Msg: Block 342932: Oncorrectable data error or media is write protected.
got the above message for many blocks before I aborted the test.
Error Code 4EOF:0650
Msg: IDE Device Failed" The self test failed the read portion of the test.
Can you please help me on what I should do to rectify the problem.
How can I retreive the data on my hard disk.
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.
