I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi navedalamalam,
2000-0151 error indicates your hard disk drive (HDD) has failed and may be nearing the end of its life. Please backup the data from the system if it’s booting up. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section onto the system and install it. Then run the diagnostics again.

My aunt sent me the following email outlining a problem she's having (again) with her hard drive. This same thing has happened before (maybe a year or two ago) and she had to replace the hard drive:
"I'm afraid my hard drive is failing again. It's been running slower and Slooooower and harder to get booted up. This morning I got the DOS message again that the Master Hard Disk SMART status was bad and failure imminent. Is there a problem in the computer that's "killing" the hard drives? I have backed everything up (I think) on the external drive (which is 60 Gig, BTW) so won't be devastated if there's nothing we can do. I'm afraid to turn it off now. It still does some things O.K. although quite slowly. Is there anything I can do to save it?"
She has an fairly new eMachine (I can get the exact model # and other specs if it would help, I know she has 1GB of RAM). Could there be some problem with the motherboard, or other component, that would cause the gradual demise of two different hard drives (the original and now this replacement)??? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Hi,
I have a DELL XPS8500 desktop and I have this error code: 2000-0142. I know it means that the HD needs to be replaced. When I chose to boot in partition, I do see the C disk so I'm still confident to be able to recover personal datas at some point but that the Windows booting partition is damaged....
I don't have any recovery nor Windows hardcopy but went from Windows 7 to 10 a few months ago.
I downloaded the Windows Media to create a Windows.ISO on a DVD or USB drive.
I tried to boot from the DVD but it failed to reactivate and reinstalled Windows as I guess the Internal HD is really screwed.
My questions:
- If I install a new HD, should it be straight foward to reinstalled Window by booting from the media DVD?
- Could my damage HD could be access as a ''standard drive after'' as I guess that it may be hopefully just the Windows partition that is damaged.......
Does Dell can supply a Recovery with my Service tag and Express service code?
 
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
 
 

A:HARD DRIVE FAILURE ERROR CODE 2000-0142

If you've already activated 10 on the system, you can reinstall it at any time.  You'll need the same version (10 or 10 Pro) you had - you can get the ISO from Microsoft and put it on a flash drive to do the installation.  Once 10 is activated, you have a digital entitlement on the system that allows reinstallation.
It is better to remove the faulty drive from the system and reconnect it once you have WIndows reloaded - to try and copy the data.

The title pretty much sums it up. A few days ago, I googles something, don't remember what, clicked on a normal- looking link, got one of those "Your computer has 151 detected infections" or something like that, immediately backed out then closed Firefox. (it resized the browser window and basically just took control) I knew I was screwed. Three days later, I resume from hibernate, and it froze. It's never even skipped before. (It's a new system: Dell Vostro V13 32b, abt three mos old. ) Tried ctrl/alt/del to no avail, then pushed power button. It immediately turned off w/o typical shut-down sequence. Upon restart, after BIOS, it asked to check cable and offered:

Thank you for any assistance with this issue. Jim

Hi -

See if you can boot with your Windows 7 DVD and try system repair &/or system restore.

If you are able to then boot into Windows, have your system reviewed by a Security Analyst.
Please follow these steps - http://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html

If you cannot boot into either SAFEMODE or Normal Windows, you will need to reinstall Windows 7.

Hi SUMEDH1919,
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/2fvY6Hc - restart the system and run the diagnostics again and check. 
If the error reoccurs, then the HDD has probably failed and needs to be replaced.
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Or you could order the HDD online through other vendors if required.
Personally, I would suggest you to install an SSD on the system, as the rate of failure of an SSD is very low compared to a standard HDD.
You could then download and install the OS media from here - http://dell.to/1Rd3bvj - the image will be available depending on the service tag. If the media is unavailable, then you would need to order the media from Dell or install a retail copy of the OS.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hello!
I am using a Dell laptop vostro 1450. It is about 1 year old. Warantee ran out. I am having problems with hard drive. Many days ago, say 6 months ago, suddenly the pc wont boot! Bios was not detecting the hard drive and so the windows installation window. After a few days i checked bios and the hdd was there! I somehow managed to install windows, it was also booting but the boot was extremely slow. The pc was freezing frequently. And suddenly a bsod occured! I restarted the machine and got into bios the hdd was gone! The hdd gets randomly detected by the pc. One day again the hdd was detected but i was unable to boot. The pc used to show the "starting windows" and then go to disk check. I allowed it to run it found no errors. The system then reboots and when it goes to disk check, i cancel it and the boot process stuck! It would not go further. I decided to go to dell diagnostics. It gave me an error "2000 0151" and told me the hdd was in incorrect status 3E. Pls help! I use win 7 home basic. Hdd is of toshiba. And i dont have money to buy a new hdd.

A:How to fix error code 2000 0151 in dell diagonostics?

Sorry man, but if I were to bet on this I would bet you need a new hard drive.

By all means run a hard drive diagnostic test to confirm this. If you have not changed the original disk setup you should have a Dell Utility Partition. You can run a diagnostic from there. See here:

Yes, from other posts on the Dell forum and other sites about this error, the drive will need to be replaced.

You MAY be able to get data off of it, by installing it in an external USB drive, or by connecting it as a second drive in a PC system, but no guarantees that it will work. Depends on how the drive has failed.

This is a very good lesson backing up at a minimum user data to some external media. Backups are not for IF the drive will fail, but backups are for WHEN the drive fails.

So I ran a memory diagnostics test and it gave me error code 2000-0151. I rebooted again and got to recovery options and did the dell emergency backup option were it puts everything on my hard drive to a folder and restores everything to factory settings. This now allowed me to sign in and use the computer perfectly fine BUT, it suddenly gave me a windows error message saying "Windows detected a hard disk problem" it then goes on to tell me to back things up. So i move onto the backup process and it fails very single time giving me the backup error 0x80070002. So I attempt to run a disk check again but when I schedule it and reboot it keeps canceling itself. So i did a check using command prompt as an admin and it told me "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them". So them concludes my little problem I have no idea what to do from here the hard drive is not making any weird noises which is always good. What should I do?

P.S I don't want to have to buy a new hard drive.

The message you get could mean hard disk corruption, bad sectors, a failing hard disk, Windows files or registry corruption, viruses, or memory problems. First, backup any important data that you are able to. Use the methods described in step 3 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and then do the following steps:If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log (you may need to search for wininit instead of chkdsk).
For any drives that do not give the message:
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
run disk check again as above. In other words, if it says:
Windows has made corrections to the file system
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I have a computer where it receives an error message upon startup from the SMART monitoring predicting that the primary master may have imminent failure and to please back up all data. Then it states to press F1 to continue or DELETE to enter setup. If you press F1 it just reloads the same page and error message. Press DELETE and you go into the BIOS. No where are you given an option nor will the computer boot normally into windows. Also unable to boot into Safe Mode. I went into the BIOS to disable the SMART monitoring in case that was preventing the computer from booting into Windows. Lo and behold, SMART is already disabled. I enabled it and then rebooted. Same message, same problem, unable to boot into Windows. Went into BIOS and disabled SMART, no change upon reboot.

The computer seems to be in this error loop with no option to boot into
Windows XP. The user has not backed up any files since March 2007. We need to access the hard drive in order to do a back up.

This all happened after the user did Windows updates and then the computer automatically shut down for a reboot.

At this time I don't have a boot disk for it. I went into the Recovery Console on the Windows XP CD to look at the bootfile. When I tried to look at the boot list (Bootcfg /list) is says there are none. When I attempted to rebuild (bootcfg /rebuild) I got an error message and then it failed.

A:SMART imminent hard drive failure error message

Hi celkiar04 and welcome to TSF !

The best solution would be to attach the drive to another computer. Is this a laptop or a desktop ? Is this a SATA or an IDE drive ?

If it's a regular 3.5'' drive then simply hook it as a slave on another computer. If it's a 2.5'' laptop drive then you'll need a 2.5'' USB enclosure or a 2.5'' to 3.5'' IDE adapter.

Once you've backed up your files, you can run the manufacturer's diagnostic utility on the hard drive, though usually when you start getting S.M.A.R.T. error messages the only option left is to replace the drive.

Hi!

In my opinion you should backup all data as fast as possible. In worst case you could the HDD could completely die and then you are not able to backup the data on it.

After this you should exchange the HDD. It?s depending on the HDD model that you buy how much it will cost but HDDs are not so expensive these days. I think it be possible to get one for 50 Euros.

I bought a new hard drive from Tigerdirect and bought a recovery DVD from HP. I installed the new Seagate Momentous 120 SATA, inserted the recovery CD and things started to happen, Ahhh Bliss, as soon as I click the yes button to install the works WHAM a box with

I hooked up a usb Drive to see if it reads in the bios and it does. ONE thing I do notice is the new hard drive does not get seen by the bios, so could it be the mother board or the connector?

Hi gw122, welcome to the board.

Sounds like either bad SATA cable, bad connection or port. Have you try a different post? Also, replace SATA cable. Other possibility is your PSU went unstable which causing mb damage. PSUs in all big computer manufacturers are questionable in quality. So HP may be right about the mb is being bad.

Hope this helps.

The drive needs to be replaced.  If the system is under warranty, call Dell with the error and they'll arrange that.
if the system is out of warranty, and you need a recommendation for a replacement drive and installation instructions, we'll need the full model number (i.e., Inspiron N5110, 5521, etc.).  
You're also going to need a set of recovery media -- if you did not prepare one when you received the system, you'll either need to download and make that (newer systems) or call Dell to purchase it (older systems).

Thank you for reading and hope you can help!

A:Error message at boot : Hard Disk:SMART Status Bad, Backup and replace

Back up the drive and replace it. It may run long enough for you to get your data off of it. I would recommend that you put a fresh install of Windows on your new drive. Yours is probably corrupt from the bad drive. I would just back up important data anyway, never mind the programs. You'll need to reinstall them anyway.

There's no real way to fix the drive, and even if you could, it would be uneconomical. Throw it away.

Ok, here's the history of the problem.
I have 80GB Hard drive "Samsung sp0411c" and I am using it since two years with my old desktop system with this S.M.A.R.T error at the startup (BIOS).

TWO YEARS BACK
I think there are some bad sectors involved at the last part of the HDD space. There were 4 partitions initially i.e. (C, D, E, & F). The problem started with partition F with following issues;

? Always took so long copying files into F
? System got stuck up when some file(s), folder(s) from F drive were opened and then automatic restart

You can't "fix" bad sectors.

You can however, decide if it's worth spending anymore time on an old 80GB hard drive with bad sectors that can fail at any moment.
Whatever your time is worth to you, only you can decide.

Ok, here's the history of the problem.
I have 80GB Hard drive "Samsung sp0411c" and I am using it since two years with my old desktop system with this S.M.A.R.T error at the startup (BIOS).

TWO YEARS BACK
I think there are some bad sectors involved at the last part of the HDD space. There were 4 partitions initially I.e. (C, D, E, & F). The problem started with partition F with following issues;

? Always took so long copying files into F
? System got stuck up when some file(s), folder(s) from F drive were opened and then automatic restart
? That time ran CHKDSK on F drive but in the middle of scanning it always restarted the PC automatically.
? Sometimes system restarted when I was copying some random data in the F partition.
? Whenever this restart thing happened, at the start up it displayed that there is no primary hard drive detected. Then eventually it came back live after 2-3 attempts (always).

The fundamentals still apply:

for every partition ?X?
chkdsk ?X? /f /r​
The /R will remap bad sectors in an effort to avoid future I/o errors.

a} fix all partitions
b} get the SMART data and save it for reverence (it will not be reset to zero by chkdsk)
c} view the SMART data every day
d} look for increasing statistics

PLAN on getting a new HDD asap

Hi I own a gateway laptop model: P-6860FX. It's great for gaming but in the past couple weeks it's been giving me the SMART failure on my recovery drive, and now it's giving it to me on my C: drive as well! The laptop has been running slower and slower and I even tried reinstalling windows 7 and wiping my old files out to maybe speed it up but that didn't work. At this point I'm sure I need to replace my hard drive which brings me to my question, can I just pull the one in there out, replace it, then install windows 7 on the new one and be able to run my computer?

Hello,

Yesterday, I started to get troubles with my laptop, an Acer Aspire 1650 with Samsung HM100JC HDD. First, I was getting the "blue screen of death" quite a few times and today everytime I've been starting my laptop, I got the message "Warning, SMART has detected that a hard drive failure may be imminent. Please back up your data immediately. Hit F1 to continue.".

So obvioulsy I did a back up and now I'm trying to do a diagnostic of my hard drive by using Samsung Drive Diagnostic Utility that I found on their website : http://www.samsung.com/global/busine...ort_HUTIL.html

But they only explain how to do it with a bootable floppy disk and I don't have a drive for floppy disks, only a CD/DVD drive. So I downloaded the .iso that they give but I don't know how to use it. I burnt that iso on a disc and try to reboot the laptop with the CD inside but it doesn't launch it and if I try to open the iso when a windows session is opened, it doesn't work.

So my first question is : how do I do a diagnostic of my HDD without a floppy disc?
Also, is it difficult to replace a HDD in a laptop? Or do I need to get a professional to do it?

Thanks in advance.

Alexandra

I was getting the "Smart Hard Drive Imminent Failure" message  each time I booted up.  I ran all the diagnostic tests available (both short and long tests) and the tests come back with no errors.  As my computer is a couple years old and out of warranty I purchased a new SATA drive, cloned my old drive, and replaced the original with the brand new drive.   Once again I get the same error message upon start up.  The error message specifically refers to "Hard Disk 6 (30C) and on a subsequent screen refers to SATA 5.  I only have the single; now new, SATA hard drive in the machine. I tried following the SMART test PD steps on the HP Tech Center site and nothing seems to address my issue.   My computer runs fine once booted up but will not go through the entire boot sequence without manual intervention.  This is a pain especially when Microsoft is sending it's automatic updates and unattended reboots.   Would appreciate any advice - suggestions to eliminate this error message. I have made no significant software or hardware changes prior to getting this error message other than my upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10 last July under the MS upgrade program.  The error messages did not start until months later.

I'm running Windows XP on an HP laptop that used to belong to my dad. I've been cleaning it up and getting it up to date, and it's had a hiccup here or there (and for some reason when InstallShield says there are updates, it won't actually let you /do/ anything about it) but in general it runs well. Yesterday I went to http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupd...v6/default.aspx and downloaded the high priority updates that were available. When I restarted the laptop for the updates to take effect, I received the following error message upon start-up, before the Windows XP logo appears:SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Drive Disk 2: ST9120821AS-(S1)Warning: Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent.I have no idea what could have caused this. The laptop is barely more than a year old. Avast and Malwarebytes found nothing wrong (both scans were rerun in Safe Mode). Here's the HijackThis log. Any help would be really appreciated, especially since I have no way to back up the data on this laptop (though thankfully there isn't much to lose).

A:SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Drive Disk 2

I just wanted to add that I understand that hardware problems are typically not caused by malware, but this was so sudden and the computer still works so well that I just want to be sure this isn't caused by some sort of malware. The computer's hard drive does have a small partition for Recovery, which I assume is what is being referred to as 'hard drive disk 2". If the Hijack This log is clean and the hardware problem is being caused by something else, do you know anywhere or anyone you could possibly refer me to for help? I heard that if the problem is just with the recovery partition, as long and it's never actually used things might be okay.

If this turns out to have nothing to do with malware, I'm sorry that I wasted your time. I know that you're all really busy and I really appreciate you taking the time to look this over for me. Thank you again!

Alright - My wife has had my computer for the last six months while I've been working away from home. When I get back to it, it's hanging up periodically. It would be a random hang up EXCEPT when I would run Disk Scan - then it would ALWAYS hang. So, over the weekend, I tried running Disk Defrag. When I got back home to it, my cursor was blinking in the top left corner of a blank monitor.I removed the drive and brought it to work where I have access to some crack IT guys. Looks like my boot sector is visible, but there is no directory tree to access files and I can't even seem to get a letter assignment out of the drive.Took it to Circuit City with the same results. Then took it across the street to a shady little place called Dr. Dan. From a back room, he claimed that he got it to boot to the desktop three times in a row, but then could not access any programs.The error? 1720 - SMART hard drive detect imminent failure. Attribute #01.I'm sure the drive is close to full failure. I'd like to get the data off of it and onto a clean, new HD, but if I can't even see the drive, am I hosed?My computer: eMachines T2779. OS: Win XP Home. Memory 256 MB. HD: 80 GB WD800.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Money IS an issue. TIME is NOT.

Hi VentureForth,Pro hard drive recovery is VERY expensive. That doesn't sound like an option. I have had some success using Norton's system works. It can look at the drive and see if things can be recovered. Your local guys may have done that. You can try to boot to a DOS boot disk and navigate over to you data. The key there is drive recognition. All Windows/DOS fixes need to at least see the drive. I would also take a shot with the manufacturer's software. Western Digital has data lifeguard tools. Let me also point you here: Leurgy's hard drive postThis post has all types of hard drive info. As a last resort, try hard drive CPR. Don't laugh, I have seen this work many times. With the computer OFF, remove the hard drive and rap it on the side (The side 90 degrees from where you plug it in - not on its top or bottom). When the drive has ran for long periods of time and then gets cut off for an extended period, I have seen the drive arm get stuck in the parked position. This is a do at your own risk thing and should be done only when you are sure the drive has to be replaced.Question to you... Is the hard drive clicking as it tries to start?Good luck, Rigel

go into your bios and disable the SMART drive feature for a few days, and then re-enable it. Just a guess, but it can't hurt.
