It sounds like you've had a fatal error - you can reboot the PC back to factory setting - this is called a hard reset - but before you do that - unplug you tower and clean it out (dust & dirt) - once you're done with that - restart you computer and press &hold down the "Ctrl" and "F11" button at the same time - this will let you reset the PC to the original factory configuration.

Hello Wademyd,
It seems that the installation CD that you have is not a bootable CD.. must be old one.
Please down load the boot disk for windows from http://www.bootdisk.com or follow the Microsoft article link given below:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310994
Do not be intimidated by the article, although it looks big but there is very little that you need to do, rest of it is general instructions like where can you order a new CD from etc...
OR
Simple solution is to borrow Bootable Windows XP installation disk and install it using the serial Key that has been given to you.

Please let me know if that helps and please rate the solution if it helped you.. it will not cost you anything but will make a difference for me :)

All the best and kindly let me know in case you need any further assistance.

Regards,
Srinivas

SOURCE: dell vostro 200 4 repeated beeps on start up

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes P
c

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

SOURCE: Floppy Diskette Seek Failure on boot up

Hello there:
This is a setting in the bios , so what you are going to have to do
is boot into bios and under the boot section and check to see if the floppy drive is a option that is part of the boot sequense if it is change it so that is not part of the boot sequense than go under the periphial section and check to see if it is showing up there as a removable device if so change it or disable it all together since you do not have a floppy drive ok
and this should take care of he problem
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Erorr 2000-0146 in hard vostro 1050


source/original from dell community

Welcome to Dell Community.
Let me first appreciate the fact that you have tried the steps yourself to isolate the problem.
Error code: 2000-0146 (DST Log contains previous errors) refers to previous errors in the hard drive which might not really be a hardware failure. In order to confirm this, I recommend you to run a custom test on the Hard drive which takes longer time than the Pre-boot System Assessment which you have already performed on the computer but it will give the accurate result.
Once the Pre-boot System Assessment is completed, the computer will give you an option to "Run the remaining memory test", please select "No". Then the computer will launch the 32-bit Diagnostics from the utility partition (if available).
After the diagnostics is launched, in the main menu, please click on "Custom Test", then select the "Hard drive" and click on "Run Tests". If the test completes without any error then the hard drive is fine and PC Restore can be performed to restore the computer back to the factory condition (which will result in data loss).
Please refer to the following article for more information on running the Dell 32-bit Diagnostics Utility: http://dell.to/MNJv4B
If you have any further questions feel free to reply.

Error code 0146 what does it mean?


This is indicative of a hard drive problem:
A user may report they receive an 0141, 0142, 0146 or a 0151 HDD (Hard Disk Drive) error on their Dell Desktop or Laptop system.

The Hard Drive may still continue to work but there may be other issues that could manifest themselves as an intermittent failure to boot to Windows, a slow system or noise from the Hard Drive.

If possible, before carrying out any troubleshooting steps on the Hard Drive, please make sure you have a verified working and up to date backup of your data

You could run the built-in diagnostic tool to determine specific HD problems, using this procedure:
To run the Enhanced Pre-boot System Assessment (ePSA) diagnostics, perform the steps below:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. As the computer boots, press <F12> when the Dell Splash Screen appears.
  3. At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics and press <enter>
  4. A graphical menu listing all discovered devices in the system is now displayed.
  5. Select Hard Drive and click Run Tests to start diagnostics.

Hi.

Pop the install DVD into the drive and restart your laptop. When you see the Dell logo hit the F2 key to get you into the BIOS. Look for boot options in the list and set the DVD/CD drive as the first boot device. Save the changes and exit the BIOS.

The laptop should restart and boot form the DVD/CD drive so you can install the operating system.



Good luck and regards.

I have a Dell Vostro 1000 error code 0146. I think it's a hard drive failure. Is my hard drive shot and what can I do?


Hi,

Based on Dell Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics and Error Codes For Dell Computers - KB Article - 300428, it is a Hard Drive failure, and you need to replace the Hard Drive.

I suggest to try reinstall windows first before you replace the Hard Drive.

Hope it helps you. =)

My dell vostro 1710 laptop computer screen is black.


First, try reseating the memory modules in the laptop.

If still nothing, try removing the hard drive, CD/DVD Drive, and memory one at a time (in that order) see if anything makes it boot.

Replace the parts and try booting again.

The error flashing means a processor failure. If you are knowledgeable you can try re-seating the processor.

However, if your unit is in warranty I would call Dell and have them replace the main board and the memory modules as a set. Warning: They will make you go thru these same tests even if you already have.

If the hard drive doesn't detect in multiple systems that if generally accepted as an indication of drive failure (Especially if another drive is seen in both systems) Fortunately, replacement drives are pretty cheap
