Hard drive DST failure


Your only option is to boot from the Windows CD and chose the option to repair your computer. That may work, but if not you should reformat the drive. If you have critical data on this computer, in the future be sure you ALWAYS have a backup!

Hi.

Remove and reinstall the Hard Drive for the error codes:

  • 2000-0141
  • 1000-0142
  • 2000-0142

  • 2000-0145
  • 1000-0146
  • 2000-0146
  • 2000-0151
Please see the Service manual for instructions on how to remove and replace the Hard Drive. Be sure to remove and reinstall the cables for the hard drive if you are on a Desktop Computer.
After reinstalling the hard drive re-run the diagnostics if you receive the same error code Contact Us.
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.

I did a diagnostic run and error message 2000-142 Hard drive dst test status 79 came up. what can I do to fix this problem


The dell diagnostic is an inbuilt tool that helps to identify the hardware failures...
This 0142 error occurs if the Hard drive has gone bad.. It is due to a hardware failure in the hard drive.. So toy have to replace it... If you have warranty on the computer you can call dell(18006249896).. If you dont have warranty then call any local computer shop and replace the hard drive
