How to fix error code 2000-0142


Did you try booting your computer in Safe mode to check if you receive this error message?
1. Use F8 while restarting the computer.
2. Under Windows Advanced Boot Options select Safe mode and hit Enter.
Check if you receive this error message in Safe mode.

It seems like your drive might be corrupted. If your computer is still under warranty, I would suggest you to contact them to get a replacement. But before you contact them, let us see whether Check disk utility would make a way to boot windows succesfully or not.

If you've Windows Vista Operating System disc, then try running the check disk utility from Windows Recovery Environment.

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type the following command and press enter.
Chkdsk /r

Once your machine has finished repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press ENTER to restart your laptop.

You can also try typing the following command if Check disk fails to fix the issue. At the same command prompt, type fixboot and press enter.

For your information: If you've a Dell Laptop, then according to Dell, the error code 2000-0142 is a Drive Self Test failed error code.

You can try performing a clean boot and check if it helps.
A clean boot helps to verify if any third party application services or startup item is causing this issue.You may refer the following article to put the computer in clean boot: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
If your issue is resolved after performing Clean Boot, then follow the steps mentioned in the above article.

If it doesn't work or its difficult for you then you can use RegInOut to fix this error.

Hope this information is helpful.

I have a gateway nv79u and it wont stay on for more than 30 mins. It keeps shutting off with error code 41 kernal-power.


Hi Michael,

Kernel Power - Error Code 41 often times caused by conflicting drivers. If you are trying to play a game or watching videos then the computer suddenly turns off, you must first check the following:

1. Open Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and go to Sound, Video, and Game Controllers and see you have two audio drivers installed and disable one at a time and see if it fixes the issue.

2. Boot into Safe mode (press F8 continuously upon boot up) and see if the computer still shuts down there. (If it doesn't try disabling start-up items using this guide

3. If you're pop-up error messages like "System services cannot be started" upon boot-up, you're operating system is corrupted and must be restored to default settings. (you need to press F11 upon boot up - remember to backup your important files)

3. If Step 2 above is true, check if the computer is overheating. If it does, the computer needs to be serviced. Contact gateway support at 1-800-846-2000.


Cheers.

Hi all, TECRA M10 Model No. PTMB3A000N004 Laptop was on standby and was left open all night. Next morning, no response and would not 'wake'. Laptop was plugged in on charge. Hard rebooted...


take a look:

Power Status Check
The following LEDs indicate the power supply status:

---------------------
In the case of error code 10h or 12h:

Make sure the AC adaptor cord and AC power cord are firmly plugged into the DC IN 15 V socket and wall outlet. If the cables are connected correctly, connect a new AC adaptor and/or AC power cord, if necessary.

In the case of error code 2Xh:

Make sure the battery pack is correctly installed in the computer. If the battery pack is correctly installed, replace the battery pack with a new one.

If the error still exists, the system board or the battery board may be disconnected or damaged. Disassemble the computer and check the connection between the AC adaptor and the system board and connection between the system board and the battery board (if there is one, in my case it was integrated to ths system board).

After checking the connection, perform the following:
Check 1
Replace the AC adaptor with a new one. If the AC adaptor is still not functioning properly, perform Check 2.
Check 2
Use a multimeter to make sure that the F8800 fuse on the System board is not blown. If the fuse is not blown, go to Check 3. If the fuse is blown, go to Check 6.
Check 3
Use a multimeter to make sure that the F1000 fuse on the Battery board is not blown. If the fuse is not blown, go to Check 4. If the fuse is blown, replace the Battery board with a new one following the instructions in Chapter 4.
Check 4
Make sure that the Battery board cables are firmly connected to PJ8820 and PJ8821 on the System board and to PJ1000 and PJ1001 on the battery board. If they are connected firmly, go to Check 5.
Check 5
The Battery board or System board may be damaged. Replace it with a new one following the instructions in Chapter 4.


I hope this helps many people with the troubleshooting. Details may vary as models vary, but most if it is the same for every Toshiba

Windows did not start successfully a recent hardware or software might have caused this


Try to boot the computer in safe mode.check whether it is working.
Boot the computer in advanced option by tapping F8 and select :Disable automatic restart on system failure and restart the system.
It will give an BSOD error code ie:0X000000... something like that.
troubleshoot according to that. post the error code

The computer does not boot anymore


If you have power going to the machine and monitor, as soon as it turns on press del or F1 I think to get you into your bios and check that the system is booting from the correct drive, usually C: if you have access to another computer you can make a boot disk and make your system boot from the cd instead if you chang the settings to boot from D: or whatever your CD drive is :)

Computer will not boot up. I have tried to boot up in safe mode, normal, safe mode with prompt command...nothing works, just goes back to the normal start up screen and keeps doing the normal start up over...


It looks like you're encountering an endless reboot? Here's what to do to find the actual error message.

  1. Turn on the computer, and press F8 after the POST screen but before Windows attempts to start to access the advanced startup options.
  2. Select "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" and press Enter.
You should now get a blue screen with an error message and error codes. Please write these codes down and report back.
