Question about Dell XPS Computers & Internet
I run self test and get error code 2000-0142 validation 80576 MSG: harddrive 0- s/n s1e1jqg4 Does this mean my harddrive crashed and is there still a way to get my info off of it?
Yes, cloning is the best way to get your data from the corrupt hard drive, but if you feel its a little too much for you to understand and do them, then you could get a USB to SATA/IDE connector or a external Hard drive casing suitable for your hard drive (laptop/desktop) and connect it to any working PC on the USB ports and it will work like an external Hard drive so that you can retrieve all your important data. Hope this helps.

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!

If you are getting bad block reports on your hard drive, it means that your hard drive media has suffered some degradation. It could very well be that some system files are being affected by this, thus continually triggering the problem. You may not like the suggestion I have, but it looks to me like the most solid solution (saving you hours and hours of troubleshooting).
Backup all files from your hard drive, save all of your browser shortcuts to backup files, then perform another Windows XP installation with a low level format of the hard drive. I know a PC specialist with many years of experience that says hard drives develop faulty areas over time and that every 5 years or so, it's just best to back up data from the hard drive and perform a low level format. This resets the device completely. If there are any faulty areas on the disk, they are skipped over--to the operating system, the drive will be perfectly fine.
This is not a guaranteed solution, but it sounds to me like it will eliminate a lot of possible culprits for you. Good luck.

It sounds like you've had a fatal error - you can reboot the PC back to factory setting - this is called a hard reset - but before you do that - unplug you tower and clean it out (dust & dirt) - once you're done with that - restart you computer and press &hold down the "Ctrl" and "F11" button at the same time - this will let you reset the PC to the original factory configuration.
