That error code is in relation to the hard drive beginning to go bad, If it is still in warrenty call dell, if not and you have any data you need to try and retrieve taking it to a qualified shop that can put the drive into another machine or boot with a utility cd to try and get your files is recommended, either way you are going to have to get a new drive.

Greetings AROD718,

This error message is telling you that your hard-drive is nearing OR has already failed.

I would contact a buddy or go somewhere local to get Data recovery ASAP or if that is not important to you start shopping for a new hard-drive.

Hard drives are not very expensive and are simple to install, if you need further assistance please reply back!


Good luck,

Shawn
