Both of these are hard drive errors. Error 0146 is a failed hard drive or bad drive sector, and 0148 is that thew machine is no longer detecting the hard drive. Basically, your hard drive has failed and will need replaced. Replace the hard drive and you will be set. The best place I've found to buy hard drives is at pricewatch.com, they have the best prices on the market.

You need to go to Dell Support pages online and download the drivers for your laptop model, if they dont show a windows 7 driver then try the vista or xp one they list, should still work.

The solution at: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=484539 should have worked, namely the part to access http://support.dell.com and select the "audio" drivers for your version of Windows (XP? Vista? 7?) and download/install them.

Sounds like a bad drive but it may still have the data on it (hand it over to a professional).
Next time, don't forget to do your backups so you don't have to worry.

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

To solve code error 0146 and 0148


Hi there.
0146 error is DST Log contains previous error(s).
0148 error is
IDE ERROR: status (x) (s)

This could be a problem with the BIOS, restart the PC and hit F2 as it starts up, this will take you into the bios, reset the bios to default setting, press F10, save and exit the bios, the PC will restart so perform another check and see if the same error code return.

Good luck

Graphics driver problem


If you are running Win 2000, or XP, try booting up from a WinXP CD, and at first screen type 'r' to go into recovery console. Once in recovery mode follow prompts as to what windows installation you want to fix, typically 1. Type Admin password, if there is one, otherwise tap the 'Enter' key. At next prompt )C:\Windows ...) type 'chkdsk C: \r' then tap the Enter key.
This should correct the error. Note: this task or command could take up to an hour or more, so plan ahead. Good Luck!
