It sounds like a drive failure, hopefully your data is backed-up. You will more than likely need to replace your hard drive. If your PC is still under warranty with Dell they should replace it for free.

Here is a link to some more information:

That error code references a bad hard drive. If you still have warranty call Dell support line as that code means Dell will ship you a new hard drive.
Other options are much more complex like booting to a utility (you have to buy this) which will scan your hard drive sector by sector and try to repair bad blocks.

if the M2500 doesn't display online on the front panel, the host will not detect it. If the machine has problem, it will display an error code after it init failed. Then you will dicide what to do according the error code.

Error 001, error 808

the e001 code is something is going with the fixing assembly. one of the thermistors could be going bad.

E808 is a Zero Cross error. We most commonly see power supplies or bad wall voltage cause this code.

The following information is coppied from the IR2016 Service Manual.

A zero crossing signal cannot be detected.
A fixing drive motor failure has been detected.

  • The heater does not turn on.
  • A fixing drive motor failure was detected.
  • Check the connector of the fixing film unit.
  • Replace the fixing film unit.
  • Replace the fixing drive motor.
  • Replace the DC controller PCB.

Error 0141 msg:error code 2000-0141

The hard drive has failed. If you're in warranty, contact Dell for a warranty replacement of the drive - it's a customer-replaceable part.
If you're out of warranty, look on ebay for a good deal on a brand new hard drive for your Dell Inspiron 1525

After windows sp2 update

0141 error is no hard drive detected. So boot to the BIOS F2 at boot and ensure that the BIOS is seeing the hard disk drive. If it is not, then reseat the drive/drive cable connections and try again. If the drive is detected in bios, then try booting to WIndows, if HDD never is detected, reset bios defaults and reboot, and see if it detects, if still not detected, replace the hard disk drive

The laptop cannot see/detect the hard drive. This means the hard drive is faulty or it needs reaeating.
Remove the hard drive and inserting again, then reboot the laptop, if it still cannot detect the hard drive then it is faulty.
You need to purchase a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive.

It is the Hard drive on the system. Hard Drive is failing. Another Error code for the Hard Drive is Error Code 7. Check BIOS setup if the system still detects the Hard Drive as well. You may want to consider changing the Hard Drive on the system.
