Wajhia,

This error code represents a failed hard drive. It will need to be replaced. You can order a hard drive from the Dell Spare Parts Department by calling 1-877-717-3355 in the US. You can also go to you local computer shop to purchase a hard drive.

Thank You,

Looks like the hard drive is having problems. Here's Dell's website for running a diagnostics test on your drive:

Hi there!
The error code you have there means that the Drive Self Test failed. You can try to power down computer, disconnect and reconnect hard drive from the system board. Run the diagnostics , if no error occurs then it's a cable/connector issue, if it failed with the same error, replace you hard drive,
Hope this helps!

That error is normally a bad hard drive. Replacement is fairly easy and not to expensive, but you will have to reinstall a Operating System to the new drive.

Error code 0142 message error code 2000-0142


My computer did boot up to the desktop, but was completely unresponsive from there when trying to open anything. I ran a system diagnostics and got this error with the status byte of 70. I rebooted into Safe Mode and was then able to open files. I backed up my stuff to a flash drive and then ran Error-Checking in the HD Properties which runs the CHKDSK function the next time the computer is rebooted. That found 2 bad file clusters and repaired them. One was a file called Windows.edb, which does the hard drive search indexing for Windows and was most likely my problem with the lockups. The other was a Napinsp.dll file. After these were fixed and the computer was rebooted, everything worked normally.
This HD is only 9 months old, but if this happens again, I'll replace it again.

My laptop is inable to get past the microsoft loading page. I ran the test and got the error code: 0142. Msg error 2000-0142. Meaning there is a problem with the hard drive. I took out the hard drive and...


2000-0142 is an UNREPAIRABLE hard drive failure.
IF you can boot to windows, do so and copy any important data to a CD, DVD or external drive before it completely fails (If system will not boot in normal mode, try safe mode (F8 at boot)
If you cannot boot to windows, then you may be able to get a replacement HDD, install windows and drivers on it, then using a USB HDD adapter, see if you can find your data on the old drive.
Regardless, the only way to fix the computer is to replace the drive, there is no tool that will REPAIR a 200-0142 error on a hard drive, only replacement.

sounds like a bad hard drive. Press f12 during the dell logo on startup and choose "diagnostics" from the boot menu, see if more failures relating to the hard drive are returned.
