Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

Unexpected I/O error has occurred--Status:Oxc00000e9

I am also experiencing the same problems. I am also running a Dell Inspiron 1525. The hard disk Diagnostic reported many errors with the hard disk drive. I have been unable to boot to a cd or my nic card. The only solution i see from here is to replace the hard drive....Not what I want...but i have no choice.

If you have error codes from the diagnostics, then your drive is failing or has already failed.

Check with Dell to see if you still have a warranty on it. It is covered, if your warranty is still in effect.

Booting to the CD requires that in the Boot Up (BIOS) that you have selected the CD as a bootable item - and that there is something to boot TO in the drive...

your HDD may be corrupted, re-installing windows vista is one option. Your best bet is if you have/ can obtain a copy of windows vista run setup and try the repair wizard in the windows vista setup, the wizard automatically finds errors and missing files and replaces them therefore solving any errors in your HDD. you can also try to use the recovery wizard from your recovery disc. best of luck

I did a diagnostic test on a dell inspiron 1525 and everything passed except the hard drive with error code 0142, what does this mean and can it be fixed, thanks.


Hi,

Based on
Dell Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics and Error Codes For Dell Computers - KB Article - 30042,
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.

Laptop dell 1525 : power on but no hard drive activity,then later turns on normally (window vista ,normal)and then frozen and after restart no hard activity again but power is on???


You can try running the DELL diagnostics which came with the computer or you can download them off another computer from the dell support website.
Once you get in the diagnostics package. Check the Hard drive, there will be a few testing parameters for the disk check them all.
If the hard drive fails in even 1 test, note down the error code and provide it to dell support who will replace the hard disk if it is still under warranty.
If you dont have warranty then you may need to buy a hard-drive yourself and have it fixed.

It appears that your laptop's system board cannot not communicate with your hard disk drive. Either your hard drive is defective or the system board. Usually it's the hard drive.

The dell diagnostic is an inbuilt tool that helps to identify the hardware failures...
This 0142 error occurs if the Hard drive has gone bad.. It is due to a hardware failure in the hard drive.. So toy have to replace it... If you have warranty on the computer you can call dell(18006249896).. If you dont have warranty then call any local computer shop and replace the hard drive

There is a black screen coming and its written: error code 142 massege error code 2000 strike 0142 massege harddrive 1 strike self test unsucceful .status 79 DELL inspiron 1525


Remove the hard drive on the left side hand edge of the laptop and put it back again making sure that its properly press. This will require you to use a + screw driver. If the same thing occurs, unfortunately, replacing the hard drive will resolve the issue basing on the error code pertains to the hard drive being undetected. Please let me know of the outcome. Thank you and regards.
