I had a similar problem. I fitted a new hard drive loaded windows and on the first re boot i had no OS again.
I went into the bios checked the boot order and also the hard drive booting options. My settings had unticked the hard drive as a bootable drive. When i ticked it and installed the original HD it worked again.
At least i have a spare Hard drive in the draw :)

Restore toolbar. It did not return when screensaver had been showing and I tried to get back to work again.


Do a hard re-boot, hold down the power button until the lap top turns off. Then re-start and check to see if everything is ok.

Error code0146-2000


Doing a little digging, it looks as though this is a hard drive failure code for some Dells including the Inspiron 6400. You will probably need to replace the hard drive. IF you need to get information off of the existing hard drive, I would try putting it an external enclosure. You may be able to retrieve some of the documents from there.

Lap top dell inspiron 6400, cant get into windows,


Have you tried doing a winXP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Dell Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If the repair does not fix it :

If you have documents you need,you would have to set the hard drive in an enclosure and copy the files over. Then you can run the Dell recovery disk . This will set it up as when it came from Dell.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Button broke off PC keyboard


Is it a flat key or a normal keyboard type key?

If its a flat key make sure the things underneath the key are flat against the key and put it back on its spot and just press down on it until it clicks. You may need to press hard but please don't press too hard or you might do some damage.
