Your hard drive is failing/failed and you need to get a new one soon.
You may be able to get your stuff off the old one by installing Windows on your new drive and then getting a USB to SATA cable and plugging ii in.

try safe mode, if you can get into safe mode try sys restore if still same hold the Fn key down while sys is off and then press the power button like turning the computer on to run diagnostics - if sys fails with an error code like 0142, 0143 or 0146 its hard drive failure. you have to replace the drive but if it passes the test you have to reinstall windows.

Hi!

It is not yet the end for your machine. The error codes refers to a faulty hard drive. You'll need a new hard drive for replacement and that will fix the problem.

Should you have any other questions just leave a message.

All the best!

Error code 2000-0146


I had the same problem and came across the following solution that worked for me as well:
Re: windows Vista will not start 18 Aug 2009 07:28PM I was getting a the same error codes and couldn't get Windows to boot up at all. I went to BIOS set up (restart your computer and hit F12 when the BIOS screen comes up), went to onboard devices and changed the SATA Operations from ACHSI (don't know how it got there) to the factory default setting ATA. Then I started up in "repair mode" (which was an option that was coming up when I tried to boot up before but never worked) - it went through a repair check and went to login screen.
Prior to finding this - I tried several things including start up from the Reinstallation disc, but nothing worked. I was ready to buy a new hard drive, but don't have to. Works fine!
Not sure what caused the problem to start with. It is an "Inspiron 1520"
