Question about Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 Notebook

1 Answer

DST Error (1000-0146) Ok, i tuned my laptop off on friday night, came back saturday morning turned it on, and it displayed the DELL screen (F2, and F12 button displayed) then a black screen comes with a blinking cursor at the top left corner and nothing boots up...I tried reinstalling the OS (xp) didnt work, tried repairing it (well not sure how it takes me to DOS) I ran the chkdsk /r it had bad sectors and says it repaired it, yet still nothing, i put a portable hard drive in and tried to install windows on the new hard drive, it recoginzed the drive, created a D:\windows\ directory but during the installation when the computer reboots, did NOT go past that blinking cursor again..please help... when i was in the recovery DOS, i was able to browse thu the hard drive, all my files are there, that is what i want to do is copy my personal files, they are all there, but i cannot COPY *.* using DOS, it wont allow me to use wildcards, i was able to copy a certain file for instance, i do not want to format the hard drive before i get my files from it... what i think it is, its not booting past the BIOS stage, when i ran the diagnostics, DST SHORT STATUS TEST 1000-0142 error appeared, when i ran the DELL Resources CD Diagnostics (not the windows xp cd) and i tested the HArd drive READ, some sectors had erors...and couldnt repair... I just want my files and i can buy a new hard drive after that... please help.... Thank you

    Basilio, thanks for the reply....



    I ran the fixmbr, fixboot and chkdsk /R (not /f) it created a new boot sector, checked for bad sectors, and says it repaired, however still same problem, blinking cursor, even in safe mode, not able to start...safe mode is (F8) right...any other suggestions?

    i'm ready to go to the roof and drop it, if anyone can get here in 15 minutes and catch it, you can land urself a 17" dell laptop...



    and yes i am familiar with DOS, back when Win 3.0 and 3.1 :) were the bomb :)

Glad to know you can use DOS. Ok, you need to run these three commands in DOS (Recovery console, in XP verbose):
1) fixmbr, this will repair the boot sector on your HD
2) fixboot, this will repair your Windows boot, and
3) CHKDSK /F (the F parameter stands for "fix").
The system should now be able to start normally, or at least in SAFE MODE.
