Inspiron Error Code 2000-0151

This question is answered

I have a new Dell Inspiron purchased in October 2012 & when turning it on today it gave me disk error and instructed to run diagnostics.

When I ran Dell diagnostics I got this message:

Error Code 2000-0151

Validation 100665

Msg: Hard Drive 0-S/N WXH1C12C6814, incorrect status = 32

Technical support will need this information to diagnose the problem.

This is my 3rd Dell and I hate to think I will be replacing yet a 3rd hard drive.  Is that what this message means?

Help!

  • Hi akonyk,

    Well it is quite annoying when the computer doesn’t work fine. I can certainly help you out with few steps hoping that would fix the problem.

    This error message is for the hard drive.

    We need to reseat the hard drive and then run the test on the hard drive again. Reseat the hard drive if you are comfortable in doing so.

    I would recommend you to run diagnostics on the computer.

    • Restart the computer and press F12 to enter the Boot Menu.
    • When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press Enter
    • The computer begins to run the Pre-boot System Assessment, a series of embedded diagnostics that perform initial testing on your system board, keyboard, hard drive, and display
    • If the Pre-boot System Assessment completes successfully, you receive the message Booting Dell Diagnostic Utility Partition
    • Press any key to continue
    • Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the Diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive
    • After the Dell Diagnostics loads and the Main Menu screen appears, click the button for the option you want to run -

    Express Test: Performs a quick test of devices. The test typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and requires no interaction on your part

    Extended Test: Performs a thorough check of devices. The test typically takes 1 hour or more and requires you to answer questions periodically

    Custom Test: Tests a specific device. You can customize the tests to be run.

    Symptom Tree: Allows you to select tests based on a symptom of the problem you are experiencing

    When you have finished running a test, close the screen to return to the Main Menu screen. To exit the Dell Diagnostics and reboot the computer, close the Main Menu screen


    Please make a note of the error message.

    Awaiting your response!

    Thanks & Regards

  • Thank you, but unfortunately the diagnostic test have not been able to complete.  It gives me the same Error Code: 2000-0142. Short cell test unsuccessful.  Is this something I will be able to repair myself or should I contact Dell for new hard drive?  Thanks for your help.

    As ejn63 correctly said we need to replace the hard drive.

    If the computer has active warranty I shall go ahead and arrange for a service to replace the part.

    Check warranty status: http://dell.to/10pMa86
