limestone_cowboy Posted April 29, 2007 Share Posted April 29, 2007 Greetings to all; I'm new. Classic situation: My wife leaves tomorrow morning for a business trip and it is late. I'm afraid her hard drive is ill or gone. It is an Inspiron 300 laptop, and will not boot into windows. (XP) I get an 1000-0146 error message during diagnostics, and a 1-4-6 beep count. I've reseated the hard drive, but see no difference. I'm tempted to drive half an hour to where I can borrow an XP CD, in hopes that there will be something worthwhile left on the drive once I'm up and running. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Mike btw, this error code and Google brought me to this site!
