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.

It means "DST Log contains previous error(s)."
