Error code 0142 message error code 2000-0142


My computer did boot up to the desktop, but was completely unresponsive from there when trying to open anything. I ran a system diagnostics and got this error with the status byte of 70. I rebooted into Safe Mode and was then able to open files. I backed up my stuff to a flash drive and then ran Error-Checking in the HD Properties which runs the CHKDSK function the next time the computer is rebooted. That found 2 bad file clusters and repaired them. One was a file called Windows.edb, which does the hard drive search indexing for Windows and was most likely my problem with the lockups. The other was a Napinsp.dll file. After these were fixed and the computer was rebooted, everything worked normally.
This HD is only 9 months old, but if this happens again, I'll replace it again.

When I started my DELL Inspiron 1525 running Win 7 Ultimate, I got a white-on-black screen which questioned the voltage from power adapter. Diagnostic program run.. Stopped with the following msg: Error...


2000-0142 and 2000-0146 are hard drive SMART errors, indicating the HDD will fail.
To boot message about the AC adapter was a BIOS level message that normally appears when a Auto/air ac adapter or other 65 watt ac adapter is used to power the system.

I did a diagnostic test on a dell inspiron 1525 and everything passed except the hard drive with error code 0142, what does this mean and can it be fixed, thanks.


Hi,

Based on
Dell Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics and Error Codes For Dell Computers - KB Article - 30042,
it is a Hard Drive failure, and you need to replace the Hard Drive.

I suggest to try reinstall windows first before you replace the Hard Drive.

Hope it helps you.

Comoputer: DELl precision T5500 Workstation Problem: cannot start normally Error CODE 0142 Msg: Error Code 2000-0142 Msg: Hard Drive 0-Self-test unsuccessful Status: 72


sounds like a bad hard drive. Press f12 during the dell logo on startup and choose "diagnostics" from the boot menu, see if more failures relating to the hard drive are returned.

It appears that your laptop's system board cannot not communicate with your hard disk drive. Either your hard drive is defective or the system board. Usually it's the hard drive.

I did a diagnostic run and error message 2000-142 Hard drive dst test status 79 came up. what can I do to fix this problem


The dell diagnostic is an inbuilt tool that helps to identify the hardware failures...
This 0142 error occurs if the Hard drive has gone bad.. It is due to a hardware failure in the hard drive.. So toy have to replace it... If you have warranty on the computer you can call dell(18006249896).. If you dont have warranty then call any local computer shop and replace the hard drive

There is a black screen coming and its written: error code 142 massege error code 2000 strike 0142 massege harddrive 1 strike self test unsucceful .status 79 DELL inspiron 1525


Remove the hard drive on the left side hand edge of the laptop and put it back again making sure that its properly press. This will require you to use a + screw driver. If the same thing occurs, unfortunately, replacing the hard drive will resolve the issue basing on the error code pertains to the hard drive being undetected. Please let me know of the outcome. Thank you and regards.
