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.

Hi, In my dell optiplex 380 desktop showing blue dump error which describes that ecode : 051 msg : 2000-0151 msg: Hard drive-1-incorret stats:3E no addition


Most cases the harddrive is faulty if with code the PSA+ 2000-0151 code means Hard Drive (d): - Incorrect status: (x) (s) etc...Caution:Remove any and all power sources Including but not limited to: AC Adapter, Battery, or Desktop Power Cord, before you remove or reinstall an item in your computer." So Run the Drive Self Test (DST) from the Utility Partition also known as the 32 bit diagnostics to determine if the previous error has been corrected. If the DST from the Utility Partition does not indicate a failure of the drive, we consider the error to have been corrected and the drive does not need to be replaced.

D610 DST Short Status Test Fail


It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

No bootable device


Error Code 0141 means no drive detected.
If that's your problem then you should take out the harddrive out and try it on another laptop or buy an external enclosure.
You can get them for $10
If it won't run on another computer that means the harddrive is bad but if it does run then it means you have a serious issue within the laptop componants.

Dell Inspiron 1420 freeze at starting


This is an easy one.

You hard drive has DIED.

Call or chat with Dell tech support and get a replacement drive

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/chat/hardware_chat?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Since the system is less that a year old, you can request a replacement drive witht eh factory image on it too.

DST Short Status Test (Error detected)


DST stands for Drive Self Test, it means your drive is failing.

I would get a new hard drive and USB enclosure, install new drive in laptop and install windows, then take the old drive and install it in the USB enclosure so you can connect to your laptop when windows is running and restore your files, assuming the drive is not completely dead.
