Hi,
The short DST test is generally the failure of the HDD,It would giive you code next to it , that would something like 1000-0146,or 1000-0141 etc. Do give that code and I would let you know the exact failure


Thanks

Dell Inspiron 1521 Error Code 2000-0146


It means "DST Log contains previous error(s)."
Dell Support says “If the diagnostic test reports one of the above errors, refer to Dell Troubleshooting Wizard: "Hard Drive Fails the Diagnostics" Wizard ID: 324398”

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/tree?journalid=79E54961218510CBE040AE0AB5E158B6&treeid=324398

Dst SHORT KEEP GETING THE BLUE SCREEN SO I RAN DELL TEST THAT SAID DST SHORT ?? I DO NOT HAVE ORGINAL OS DISK & UNABLE TO MAKE A COPY ERROR WITH DOWN LOAD??


DST = Drive Short Test.

Its called 90/90 Diags for hard drive. You need to contact Dell Tech because the hard drive needs to be replaced

Failed DST Short Test and Screwy Mouse/Keyboard


Hi there.
I'm sorry to say that error code 1000-0146 means that the hard drive is failing and it can go at anytime, get yourself a USB mouse and start the computer up, the operating system should recognize the mouse and install the drivers (it may take a couple of minutes so be patient), as soon as the mouse is installed it is imperative that you back up all of your data, either to an external drive or CD/DVD.
Then you have to purchase another dive of if you have any warranty on the laptop send it in for Dell to repair.
If you are out of warranty and need instruction on how to install a new drive please feel free to post back.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I got the below error ... is it possible tot ake my backup from the HDD?


A 0146 error means that the hard drive has a failing sector, and the drive will need replaced. If it's operable, then back everything wanted or needed up, because it will fail completely if it hasn't already.

This is a hard drive failure. You will have to replace the hard drive. Go to pricewatch.com they have the best prices for hard drives that I've found.
