Error code 0146 means bad hard drive. You will need to replace the hard drive. Dell can ship you one if the laptop is still under warranty.

Probably need to use your recover disk- unless you are running different OSs on other partitions, probably no reason to partition the hd. unless you want a partition for backup purposes- better to get a usb external drive to use for backup, in case your primary hd fails!
merging probably confused your vista OS. may have messed up your boot sector. might think about W7- you may be able to get a free upgrade!! check it out!
(after you get vista working again!)
good luck!

Reformat partition hard drive


To return your HD to the factory settings do a full system recovery using the recovery disks (CD or DVDs) you made when you first had the computer. This will return the whole computer to its as-shipped state: you will lose all your data and any software that you have installed. This will retain/re-install the original partition structure on your hard disk. To do this process you may also use the recovery partition on the hard disk.

To completely reformat the hard disk, in which case you will lose everything on it
press the start button at the bottom left of screen,
R-click on computer, and select manage. The computer management window will open. From the left pane click on disk management under 'storage'. A new pane will open, with information on the different disks in your computer. Select the disk on which the partition to be formatted is located. R-click on the partition to be formatted, and choose format, and ten work through the format wizard. (see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-format-hard-disk-partition#create-format-hard-disk-partition=windows-7)
When you R-click on the partition other options will appear will appear as well as format, choose the appropriate option to create a new partition, merge, etc, By successively working your working your way through the partitions you may format/merge some while retaining others.

How can I merge two Hard Drive partitions together?


Nearly any partitioning software, even the built-in found on an XP install disk can repartition your drive. Partition magic is easier to work with. You can also find partitioning utilities at most hard drive manufacturer's websites. Or check out some of the shareware utilities here.

There is always a risk of losing ALL data on the drive when you repartition. It is likely the two recovery partitions are quite small. If the data on the drive is important it may be wise to leave it as is and simply buy an additional drive.
