Computer unresponsive and error code 200 -0146


that is a dead hard drive. Im sorry. 2000-0146 means that the hard drive has failed its "self test" and is telling the computer it has a malfunction. *sometimes* the drive can be used with the malfunction just long enough to get your data, and sometimes it dies instantly: it depends on *what* the malfunction is, but in any case, the news is bad. Your drive is dying or dead and it must be replaced.

Reasons why Hard Drives fail.


A hard drive's file system may become corrupted or damaged due to a virus or software malfunction, but this is not a true drive failure because in most cases you can reformat the drive and reinstall the operating system and everything is back to normal. Hard drives fail due to a malfunction in their mechanical or electrical components.

The following picture illustrates the major components inside a hard drive:

The following is a list of the most common mechanical failures that can happen.

1. The spindle motor can malfunction. The spindle motor works much the same way that cd-rom or dvd player spindle motor works and is located in the middle of the hard drive platters. In a hard drives case, it's job is to spin the platters.

2. The read/write heads malfunction or the actuator arm malfunctions and prevents the read/write heads from reading the data stored on the hard discs (the platters). The picture below shows a closer view of the platters, actuator arm, and read/write head.

3. The hard discs themselves can become damaged by rough handling (dropped) or can in some cases become scratched by the read/write heads if they touch the disc.

4. On the back side of the hard drive case you will see where the cable and power supply plugs in and you will also see where the jumpers are. These contain small pins and can easily be bent or broken.

5. Another problem that can occur is the cables and ribbons themselves become loose and do not make a proper connection or the cable themselves can become damaged. The power cable can also become damaged or malfunction.

Hard drives can also fail due to malfunctioning or damaged electronics on their circuit board.

The most common electrical components to malfunction are Transistors, Capacitors, and Resistors. Power surges are the common cause of these small components to fail, so remember to make sure you are using a good surge protector or a UPS system for your entire computer system. A good policy is to always unplug your computer system from outlets when a storm is capable of producing lightening. It is also important to remember that if any of these failures happen, it will be cheaper to replace the drive for a new one. You can return a hard drive to the manufacturer to be fixed if it is still under warranty. Read your documentation and warranty information carefully if you purchase a new hard drive to upgrade/replace your old one.

The following picture is an illustration of where the hard drive is located inside the computer case. In this case, it is a SATA hard drive.

If your console won't reformat your hard drive may be malfunctioning. you can buy them from best buy or anywhere that sells computer hardware and accessories. However, it may be your motherboard that has malfunctioned so hold on to the receipt for your hard drive.

Wd portable hd - device attached to this system is malfunctioned


It could be that the Hard Drive inside the enclosure still works, not sure if you care about voiding any warranty as opening it up will likely do, but there is a very slight chance that the Hard Drive itself will let you get the data off it. I am not sure what the connector to the drive is on the inside though as I have not taken one apart myself, :).

Malfunction


if the drive isnt faulty to the point that you can connect it to a computer, you can get an external harddrive enclosure from NewEgg.com and connect it to your computer using a usb cable. These have always worked great for me.

Malfunction


You can try to take it out from the enclosure and plug the hard drive directly to your motherboard for you to retrieve the date. Or just buy a different drive enclosure.

Have you looked both in Device Manager and in Disk Management?
Have you tried plugging your external hard drive into another computer?  
If it isn't recognized on multiple computers, then you are probably experiencing a hardware failure.  
There are a variety of things that can malfunction on your external hard drive:

1) The USB cable - Have you tried switching the USB cable? 
2) The external hard drive casing 
3)  The hard drive itself 

If your hard drive casing has malfunctioned, then retrieving your data is as simple as putting the hard drive inside another hard drive enclosure.  Hard drive enclosures are available at any local computer store, and also available on our website.  Make sure to get the right size enclosure.  The I250HD35 has a 3.5" Hard Drive inside it, which is a standard desktop hard drive.

If you put your hard drive in another enclosure and it still won't show up on any of your computers, then your best bet at retrieving your data is to contact a data recovery specialist.   After you have retrieved your data, we will replace your unit if you are still within the warranty period. For specific warranty and replacement information, go to www.iomagic.com and click on Support.
 
Have a nice day,
