Question about Dell Vostro 1710 Notebook

1 Answer

Having problems with my Dell laptops' hard drive so I ran diognostics and came back with the 2000 0146 error code and after a bit of research found out a good way to try and save my files is with a "USB 2.0 external enclosure" (Not even entirely sure what this is...help?) Will it replace my hard drive or will I have to buy a new one on top? Thanks!

Hi Lofimodernis

Regarding your inquiry unsing a USB 2.0 external or HDD enclosure is basically used to connect a laptop HDD to another computer to be used to extract or back up files on to new HDD or another device. regarding with the error 2000 0146 as far as i can remember as a technician when it comes to dell laptops it would really be a HDD replacement

Hope I have answer your inquiry about the USB 2.0 external enclosure

Thank you for choosing fixya support

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.

Opened laptop to find ' internal hard drive not found ' i did a reseat on hard drive , still not working. ran f5 test and tests all ok bar hard drive not found. laptop was working 10 mins before error came...


Please make sure if you open the back part of the laptop check the Harddrive if it is firmly connected. bacause it is possible that the reason why the laptop doesn't detect it is because of the physical connection.

My dell inspiron 1720 keeps rebooting. Pressed


Yes. You'll need to replace the hard drive with that error code.

No matter you can't use that computer without replacing the hard drive.

If you have a warranty for the computer contact tech support for your dell, give them the error code you have
and they will immediately replace your hard drive.

Re seating the hard drive won't fix it.

Hope this helps!

Guess the error code is that of the diagnostics in built in the dell systems.

This error code indicates a problem with the Hard drive. It can be resolved by reseating the hard drive and the optical drive. Kindly look in to the manual and look for the location of the hard drive. It will have 2 screws which needs to be removed after which the hard drive can be pulled out. Optical drive will have one screw embedded deep inside.

Place the hard drive and the optical drive back in its place and then test for the error code.

Please turn off system and remove the battery and the AC adapter when performing these steps.

No internal hard disk found after laptop is closed?


Hi,
To fix this problem you would need to try this.
*Run the psa test
1. press the 'fn' key and power key together, it will automatically launch a diagnostic test, follow the onscreen instructions confirm if it comes with any error code (it should come up with 0141 error code if it is a hard drive problem).
2. check the hard drive status in bios (check if it is being detected).To do this you would need to switch on the laptop and start tapping F2 key (multiple times, especially at dell logo). this will lead you to bios. using the down errow key on the keyboard, go to device info and check the first option on the right hand side (primary hard drive). confirm if it is detecting the hard drive or it says none or unknown.
3. Remove the optical drive by following the link (support.euro.dell.com) and check if it works after removing the optical drive. This is because optical drive can cause the hard drive not to work properly as they are interconnected with each other.
Once you have performed the above steps, confirm so that I can suggest you the rest of the steps accordingly.

Regards,
Musheer.

It is the Hard drive on the system. Hard Drive is failing. Another Error code for the Hard Drive is Error Code 7. Check BIOS setup if the system still detects the Hard Drive as well. You may want to consider changing the Hard Drive on the system.
