Try booting in safe mode. If the problem persist you probably have a bad hard drive. The most cost effective resolution is to replace it and it is fairly simple. You can buy a usb hard drive connector to retrieve files etc.

Laptop beeps 7 times


Try link: http://blog.parts-people.com/2014/06/27/dell-inspiron-m501r-m5010-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators-2/ How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
  • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
  • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.

  • 2 Beeps: Reseat the memory or replace the memory.
  • 3 Beeps: Replace the motherboard / system board.
  • 4 Beeps: Reseat the memory or replace the memory.
  • 5 Beeps: Replace the CMOS battery.
  • 6 Beeps: Reseat or replace the video card or replace the motherboard / system board.

Error code 0146 what does it mean?


This is indicative of a hard drive problem:
A user may report they receive an 0141, 0142, 0146 or a 0151 HDD (Hard Disk Drive) error on their Dell Desktop or Laptop system.

The Hard Drive may still continue to work but there may be other issues that could manifest themselves as an intermittent failure to boot to Windows, a slow system or noise from the Hard Drive.

If possible, before carrying out any troubleshooting steps on the Hard Drive, please make sure you have a verified working and up to date backup of your data

You could run the built-in diagnostic tool to determine specific HD problems, using this procedure:
To run the Enhanced Pre-boot System Assessment (ePSA) diagnostics, perform the steps below:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. As the computer boots, press <F12> when the Dell Splash Screen appears.
  3. At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics and press <enter>
  4. A graphical menu listing all discovered devices in the system is now displayed.
  5. Select Hard Drive and click Run Tests to start diagnostics.

I get the error code 2000-0146 only when i run the f12 diagnostic


The 2000-0146 error code indicates a read/write failure of the hard drive. There is at least 1 sector that is failing on the drive. While it is working at the moment, the drive is failing and will over time degrade and eventually fail completely. Backup any important data, then replace the drive.

Dell xps 1330 is not getting booted, when run the diagnostics got Error 2000-0146. After restart with repair got blue screen with error STOP: c000135, Please help me to resolve this issue.


Resolution is simple enough. 2000-0146 is a read-write failure of the hard disk drive. You will need to replace the drive and reinstall Windows and your drivers. You can get a Replacement HDD here is the system is no longer in warranty:

Getting write/read failure at 2F7EB56C


That is usually an indication of a Memory Address Failure. Most systems have 2 RAM modules, try the modules one at a time, see if the error goes away. If the error only occurs with one module, then replace that module.

If the error occurs with either RAM module, then it could also be a Hard Disk Drive error. If you can, run diagnostics from the F12 boot menu or the resource CD. If the Hard drive fails diagnostics, replace the drive.

System boot problem


This is possibly a bad hard drive. If you know the manufacturer of your hard drive you can download diagnostic tools from their site, burn to cd and run diagnostics to check the drive for errors or failure.

When turning my laptop on i get a message media test failure


You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
