Question about Dell Inspiron Laptop 1440
Dell inspiron 1440 recieving error 2000-0146, hard drive is not that old
This error very much relates to your hard drive either having failed or is in the process of failing. The error may come up when the drive fails the S.M.A.R.T. Test (sounds stupid I know).
This test could indicate that the drive is not spinning up in the required time frames or that it draws more power or has needle placement issues.
Sadly here drive age may not have to say much. As a rule in computer electronics you can triple or quadruple every components age. So if the device is 3 years old in technology years it could be 9 years old.
Especially in mobile computing mechanical drives can fail faster even though manufacturers put in newer software to combat the issue of hard drive failure due to movement. For example a hard drive in simple terms is very much like an LP Player where a needle is running on the disc reading the data/music for playback. Now imagine what happens when your walking, moving (bus/train/car you name it) and this needle is exposed to various forces it normally wouldn't be exposed to. Basically that additional strain can cause these mobile hard drives to fail a lot faster.
In this case it does sound like you will need to look at replacing your drive and I would recommend doing this before it fails completely as recovering any data once this happens (photos, documents, etc.) will be very costly.
I hope this helps
