SOURCE: dell inspiron 1520 error code 2000-0146

I had the same problem and came across this solution that worked for me as well:
Re: windows Vista will not start 18 Aug 2009 07:28PM I was getting a the same error codes and couldn't get Windows to boot up at all. I went to BIOS set up (restart your computer and hit F12 when the BIOS screen comes up), went to onboard devices and changed the SATA Operations from ACHSI (don't know how it got there) to the factory default setting ATA. Then I started up in "repair mode" (which was an option that was coming up when I tried to boot up before but never worked) - it went through a repair check and went to login screen.
Prior to finding this - I tried several things including start up from the Reinstallation disc, but nothing worked. I was ready to buy a new hard drive, but don't have to. Works fine!
Not sure what caused the problem to start with. It is an "Inspiron 1520"

My Dell laptop makes 12 beeps and won't start, why?

Most likely one of the components on the motherboard has fried.

One other thing to try that probably won't fix your problem. Is to take out the battery and try it plugged in. That way it will tell you if a bad battery is pulling down the power supply or the power supply is dead and it's trying to run on the last of the battery power.

If the screen stays black throughout the power-up then it most likely isn't the hard drive and you'll be able to get your information out of it with an adapter and a little work. (as long as it's not encrypted)

My house power went off and when it came back , i am not able to switch on my desktop. All i hear after i power on my desktop is the fan noise and the beep sound. Pls help

If you hear exactly ONE beep, it means that your computer-hardware (power-supply, CPU, motherboard) is OK.
Multiple beeps are "bad" -- they identify different errors.

If Windows does not "boot", then the power-surge may have damaged your 'C:' drive. Ouch!
