Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
My Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop won't boot up. It keeps reverting back to the screen where you can boot in safe mode or normal mode, so it keeps attempting to restart unsuccessfully.
In that safe mode/normal screen it says to reinsert the windows disk and select repair, but the system does not acknowledge that there is a disk in the drive. It won't boot from the disk. In the DST short test, I received the error code 1000-1046. Does this mean the hard drive has failed or is dead?
Any advice would be appreciated, before I invest in a new hard drive.
The DST error code 1000-1046 is definitely a failing hard drive. ..I am not sure why your laptop is not recognizing a CD in the drive, but you should go into your BIOS settings, and in boot sequence, make sure that the CD drive is the first boot device. If you can't boot from a CD, you are not going to get very far with installing a new hard drive...
