Error 0146 is a related error with harddrive on a dell laptop.

In most cases when you get this error the harddrive may need a replacement.
If you can still boot up your computer backup your data and try to reinstall the operating system and see if this helps you.

The error code indicates that your hard drive is failing. If the laptop is still under warranty, contact Dell for support. If not, I would suggest trying to get it booted one more time and copying everything you want to keep off of it. Then, look for a new 2.5" hard drive on Geeks.com or TigerDirect.com (some place like that). Either way, the hard disk is probably on its last leg. I hope this helps!

Yes, it is a hard drive issue and there is no fixing it temporarily without losing your data. The best thing to get your data is to get a USB enclosure for the type of drive it is (if it's a sata drive or a pata drive) or get an adapter that's an all in one (for 3.5, 2.5, and SATA). Then you hook your failing drive up to the converter, put it in the usb port of another computer and then it will show up as another drive that you can open and explore.

its a hard drive error you have a bad sector in the drive its defective. If its still under warranty call dell hardware support with the error code. If not buy a new 2.5" drive they are not to spendy. I just replaced mine with a 250g 7200 and my computer works great now.

After reinstalling the hard drive re-run the diagnostics if you receive the same error code Contact Us.
Run the Drive Self Test (DST) from the Utility Partition also known as the 32 bit diagnostics to determine if the previous error has been corrected. If the DST from the Utility Partition does not indicate a failure of the drive, we consider the error to have been corrected and the drive does not need to be replaced.

Erroe Code 0146 (Dell Inspiron E1505) MSD Unit 0 DST Log contains previous error. ???


Hi ! Error code is this error code 2000 - 0146??? if that is the error message you have to contact dell technical support to replace the hard drive because that error code mean that the hard drive is already faulty. You can Reinstall the Hard drive as well but it is not guarantee that it will fix the issue. Most of the time dell will send a hard drive replacement for that kind of message if the system is still in warranty it will be free but if not you have to pay for the replacement. Hope this will help you . God Bless!

I have an error code 0146 on my dell laptop that isn't a year old. it should still be under warranty. Should I try and restore the whole system or don't even bother and contact dell and let them fix it?


A 0146 error code is a write error on the hard drive. Normally, this is cause for a hard drive replacement. 800-624-9896 call Dell Tech and get it replaced.
