Any error code for a hard drive isn't good, and should be reason to get a new one right away. So long as the drive is still able to be accessed, you have a chance of retrieving your data. There are free utilities to help you 'clone' the data to a new drive, but you may want to ask a tech-minded friend for help if you've never done it before. It sounds like the drive isn't dead yet, but is definitely on its way out. Good luck!
Hello, it's time to seek Professional service. That error means that the Hard Drive may be defective. If you have videos that you want saved on the hard drive, they MAY be able to be retrieved in the hands of a Professional. Of course, the opposite is also true - you may not be able to recover anything. Won't know that, until the unit is on the bench. We can help:
click start right click on my computer you should see your drive select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors then select check now start should schedule this task when restart if this is the hard drive with your operating system on it i have found the best results ticking one box and wait until its finished then return and tick the other box do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer also there are many freeware data recovery programs available on the internet and many pay data recovery programs http://download.cnet.com/easeus-data-recovery-wizard/3000-2248_4-75184619.html
ok, the good news, the bad news, and the ugly.
Good news: buy a replacement hard drive and you should be good to go.
Bad news: data recovery on a failed drive is a crapshoot at best- there are ways to try and recover, but they are stopgap (and cheap) or mostly reliable (and freaking EXPENSIVE)
Ugly: buy an external cage to install the hard drive, use a boot cd of Linux ( I've had better luck pulling files from NTFS drives using Linux than another install of Windows. Go figure....) and put the hard drive in a freezer bag- **** ALL AIR OUT OF THE BAG!. Put drive in freezer for 48 hours.
Pray. Pray hard. Pray harder still.
Put drive in external cage, attach to linux system. Pull as much info as you can. Hopefully you can snag your important files- but that error is a pretty gnarly drive error.
Doing a little digging, it looks as though this is a hard drive failure code for some Dells including the Inspiron 6400. You will probably need to replace the hard drive. IF you need to get information off of the existing hard drive, I would try putting it an external enclosure. You may be able to retrieve some of the documents from there.
Im Sure You Solved This Problem But For Other User Yes There Is A Way To Save Your Data If Your Hard Drive Is Still Operable. You Can Put Your Boss Hard Drive Into Your Computer And Copy Its Contents To Your Computers Hard Drive. Some Say That If The Hard Drive Is Not Operating You Can Put It In A Ziplock And Then Stick It In The Freezer For An Hour Then Attempt To Retrieve Your Info. Remember Always Back Up Your Data On Hard Drive Recorders As They Are Not Fail Safe.
This type of error code can occur when installing Windows 2000, if there is some sort of hard drive confliction. If you have multiple hard drives in the computer. Please unplug all other hard drives except the MAIN drive that you are installing on, if the errors still occurs you may want to try installing to a different hard drive as your main drive, or replacing the IDE or SATA cable.
Another option to consider is that format did not complete correctly, you may want to viist the website of the manufacturer of the hard drive you are installing on and retrieve the utility to perform a Low-Level format on the hard drive - this will erase any and all data on the drive.
