DST Error (1000-0146)

I did talk to someone at geek squad and they were saying and by switching some ports where the HD connects to the IDE to another IDE port and he was saying it is easy. Am I making sense by saying this. So is it possible to switch ports and reboot the system without having to purchase a new HD and a usb enclosure? error 1000-0146

    It seems strange that this should be a hard drive failure - I have this situation for months and the hard drive seems to work just fine.

    Is there something happening that I am unable to see? e.g. works slower etc?

This error is a hard drive failure, your only option is to replace it and reload your operating system. It's easy to replace, the hard drive is located on the side of the machine and is held by one screw. After you get it out, the rest is self explanitory. Here's a link that shows breakdown diagrams.

Do your store staff enjoy tormenting handicapped people?


Talk to the store's Geek Squad Manager and have the tech involved taken off the problem. There's literally hundreds of "replacement wires" to be potentially worked with.

DST Short Status Test (Error detected)


DST stands for Drive Self Test, it means your drive is failing.

I would get a new hard drive and USB enclosure, install new drive in laptop and install windows, then take the old drive and install it in the USB enclosure so you can connect to your laptop when windows is running and restore your files, assuming the drive is not completely dead.

thanks for rating
