An 0146 message may not be a "death knell" like an 0142 would be. It can mean there are bad sectors of the drive that can be repaired by CheckDisk, which in a DOS command window is typed as CHKDSK. If you have your XP recovery Disk or retail disk, you can boot off the disk and act like you're re-installing Windows. After the brief Setup period you'll stop at a window that gives you an option to repair by pressing the R key.

After pressing the R key, a command prompt will appear. Type in HELP and hit the enter key. Then continue to hit the enter key a few more times until you reach a blinking cursor where you can type a command. At that point, type in CHKDSK and hit the enter key. It's entirely possible CheckDisk will go find the bad sectors on the hard drive, repair them and allow you to reboot into Windows normally.

There are other options but those are considered to be for "advanced users". Basically an advanced user is someone who would already know what the next steps would be and how to perform them. If what I suggested for you above isn't possible, find an "advanced user" friend before you completely give up on your data.

Finally, failing that, you would have to use an XP install disk to re-install windows and you must reformat using the regular 'slow" NTFS selection. The "quick" reformat will not repair bad drive sectors.

Good Luck

Erorr 2000-0146 in hard vostro 1050


source/original from dell community

Welcome to Dell Community.
Let me first appreciate the fact that you have tried the steps yourself to isolate the problem.
Error code: 2000-0146 (DST Log contains previous errors) refers to previous errors in the hard drive which might not really be a hardware failure. In order to confirm this, I recommend you to run a custom test on the Hard drive which takes longer time than the Pre-boot System Assessment which you have already performed on the computer but it will give the accurate result.
Once the Pre-boot System Assessment is completed, the computer will give you an option to "Run the remaining memory test", please select "No". Then the computer will launch the 32-bit Diagnostics from the utility partition (if available).
After the diagnostics is launched, in the main menu, please click on "Custom Test", then select the "Hard drive" and click on "Run Tests". If the test completes without any error then the hard drive is fine and PC Restore can be performed to restore the computer back to the factory condition (which will result in data loss).
Please refer to the following article for more information on running the Dell 32-bit Diagnostics Utility: http://dell.to/MNJv4B
If you have any further questions feel free to reply.

Stuck in start up repair 1525


Try the next oldest restore point until the issue is resolved. Any software installed after the selected restore point needs to be reinstalled.
If system restore still doesn't work, run the "Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics and Error Codes For Dell Computers", you may click the link below to go directly to the support site, it contains instructions in running PSA Diagnostics and Error Code List with possible fixes.

it is a Hard Drive failure, and you need to replace the Hard Drive.

Dell inspiron wont boot windows..I have ran a pre boot system assessment build 4118... I am getting the error code 0142. msg error code 2000- 0142 please help


That error is normally a bad hard drive. Replacement is fairly easy and not to expensive, but you will have to reinstall a Operating System to the new drive.
