Well DST means "Drive Self Test" which indicates that your HDD is failing. have you dropped your laptop by accident recently? If so, open it up and see if any of the cables are loose.

Do you still have your original Windows OS Disc? If you do then you could try booting the
recovery console and run chkdsk /r

Hopefully you can get windows to boot, and you can backup your data

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.

Error Code: 0146 Msg: Error code 2000-0146 Msg : Unit 1:DST log contains previous error (s) please help me, how i can solve this problem


I am assuming that this is a problem on a dell computer? If so that error message is an indicator that your hard drive is probably going bad and you need to back up you data and get a new one ASAP. I believe that laptop takes 2.5" 9.5 mm sata laptop drives

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!
