HARD DRIVE ERROR

I AM USING DELL INSPIRON DUAL CORE, WITH 320GB HARD DRIVE

RECENTLY I FACED A PROBLEM WITH MY HARD DRIVE. THE LAPTOP IS NOT STARTING UP.NOR THE WINDOW IS INSTALLING. IT STUCKS ON (SETUP IS STARTING). I CHECKED IT WITH THREE DIFFERENT WINDOW CD'S. ON TAKING DIAGNOSTICS TESTS, IT SHOWS ERROR IN HARD DRIVE. THE ERROR IS FOLLOWING:

HARD DRIVE 0-DST SHORT TEST
TEST RESULTS: FAIL
ERROR CODE 2000-0142
VALIDATION 43542
MSG: HARD DRIVE 0 - S/N WD-WX41EA1MTT11, SELF TEST UNSUCCESSFUL. STATUS = 7

IS THERE ANY CHANCES OF DISK REPAIR OR I HAVE TO BUY NEW ONE.


PLZZZ HELP ME AND GIVE YOUR USEFUL SUGGESTIONS.

  1. Looks like it's time for a new HD. Once installed, you can slave the old HD to see if you can salvage any files you want to save.
  2. Hi Omer ...

    Coudl you please let us know whether you could able to connect old HD to the new one and could able to recover data...
