My laptop model is DELL XPS 11. when i press the power on button, the Dell logo came out and it loads "preparing automatic repair...", then the whole screen turned black, there is nothing on the screen but I can only see the mouse cursor.
What did i do?I rebooted the laptop and immediately pressed F12 to go into diagnotics. After scanning, there was an error code 2000-0142 and the error message was Hard drive 0 - short self test unsuccessful. I even tried to use recovery media to factory reset my laptop, but it failed.I did not open up my laptop to check for any cable connection problems, because I dont know if it will void my warranty. My laptop is still under warranty.
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R laptop that is 2 weeks out of warranty, and have only owned this laptop for 1 year from new. On Jan. 1 2015 i started my new year with a 2000-0142 code as i started up my computer, so i could skype my family and friends wishing them a happy new year. After doing some serious investigating with family, friends and the internet i found that this is a common problem with Dell's Hard Drive's and they seem to do nothing to rectify this issue...
I have an Inspiron N5050 that is 8 mos old and is rarely used. When turned on, it shows windows loading files bar, then a start up repair screen but does not go beyond that. When I exit that screen, it shuts down. I restarted it and ran the F12 diagnostic test and it showed a fail with error code 2000-0142. This should still be under warranty because I bought the computer on 8/4/12. Is there anything I can do on my side or will this need to be returned to Dell for evaluation?
My lenovo yoga 11 is stuck on boot (preparing automatic repair) for a day now. This tablet is what connects me with family and friends at home (been abroad in Asia for 7 months and counting). I just want it to work again, so if a total reset is needed I'm ok with that.
I just bought a brand new yoga 2 11 only 10 days ago. I used it this afternoon, closed it up and walked away for a couple hours. This evening I tried to wake it up, and it's stuck on the Lenovo screen. After a while, it said Preparing automatic repair. It spun for 10 minutes and the screen went black. I forced shutdown and walked away, completely frustrated. Now if I try to reboot, all I see is the Lenovo screen. Nothing is happening. What can I do?!
Unfortunately I woke up this morning to my Y410P stuck with the Lenovo logo and text saying "Preparing Automatic Repair". After a few moments it will say "Diagnosing your PC " and then "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete." Then after a few seconds it restarts and everything happens again.
I'm very stuck with my Y580, and I'll start by saying that I purchased the laptop about 1.5 years ago, and it came with Windows 8 installed. I didn't like Windows 8 so much, so I decided that I would get Win7. I also decided that I'd put it on an mSATA to speed things up. After doing so, I just formatted the boot partition on the older drive to use for storage. But I kept the recovery partition on there. Everything seemed to work fine until I was recently informed that I should update the BIOS. I followed all of the instructions from Lenovo in updating to the version 8.00, something like 89WW in the file name. Then recently I noticed my temps were realllly hot when gaming... and I don't play graphically demanding games. I monitored my temps and found out that my CPU (i73630QM) was running over 90°c when playing games like LoL, Dishonored, RIFT, Darksiders, and a few others, all on lower settings.
I did some googling about temps and a lot of people were saying that BIOS is often a culprit for high temps. Maybe you've already put two and two together, but it took me until this point to discover that the BIOS I had updated to is a Win8 BIOS, and I'm using Win7. I figured, this is probably a big part of my issue (and even if it's not going to solve the heat issue, I'd still like to have all my ducks in a row and have all my hardware/software/firmware compatible.
As we all very well know from the few years of tampering with these Y580s, the BIOS can't simply just be rolled back. But I figured there had to be a way. After googling around for some time, I ended up trying a few different things; editing the Config file for the earlier version of the Bios (which just resulted in another error and locked up the keyboard and mouse), I tried booting the BIOS image from a USB, but to no avail (I tried both booting from USB and also a force BIOS update, using the fn+B method, which I realize I may be doing incorrectly, as I am not entirely sure what I should name the ROM file... I can't boot windows to use ANDYSTOOL, so I named a bunch of different ROM files with different names that have worked for other people) ... so on and so forth...
The last thing I've tried was Restoring the BIOS to factory settings (within the BIOS) and now the computer will not boot windows. The Lenovo screen Posts, and Windows starts to load, freezes a moment, Blue Screens for a second, then reboots, saying that there is an issue with either Hardware or software, and gives me he option to either boot windows normally (which just results in the same thing again) or to run an automatic repair. I tried the automatic repair and it just sits on the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen, and will do so for hours with no progress.
I just got my g500 yesterday (win8, i3) then I am installing autocad 2013 with 30 % battery so i plugged the power cord and remove the battery but after removing the battery it freezes occasionally and the installing of cad got stuck
So I shut down the comp by unplugging the cord, after turning it on it got stuck to a 'scanning and reparing drive (d) : 0%.
I tried something like the preparing automatic repair but after this it will be just a blank sreen for hours.. tried everything
I recently received the 2000-0142 error when running the diagnostics on my 7720 laptop. I found this to be a hard drive error and purchased another hard drive. After installing the new hard drive I received the 2000-0332 error.
resolving the 2000-0332 error to get my laptop back up and running?
I updated my Windows 7 and conduct a Defrag since i moved at least 400GB of Files to my External HD. After The windows finished installing the Update and reboot my System, BSOD appeared and reboot my system. I tried LKGC and all Safemode but still the same. I run the Diagnostic via F12 and i received an error below.
HDD = DST Short Test Error Code: 2000-0142 S/N WX81C32N6846 Short Self Test Unsuccessful
I tried the Windows Repair but the page is not loading and I also tried using my Recovery USB and still no page is loading. My unit is still under warranty and I dont want to touch anything internal.
I am using dell inspiron 3521 windows 8 preloaded. Whenever i start my laptop. It stuck on dell logo with full blue bar. And after few minutes, a blue screen shows that some files are missing. Error code: 0xc0000185.
When i diagnosed..its showing error code 0142. Hard drive error. And when i force it to boot. It shows in black screen with white letters "no bootable device found, press any key". And when i press any key.. Its repeating the same error... Now i dont know what is happening.. Warranty over..
On the start-up diagonstic the error code 2000-0146 came up. The computer is booting fine, though sometimes does not shuts down properly. Should I look into getting a new hard drive right now. Is it going bad?
So recently I was on my laptop, and I walked away to go handle something it died of no more battery charge pretty normal I left and tried to use my laptop when I came home some hours later, and now it will not proceed to my password screen.It turns on and the circle loader just spins I'm putting this up from my phone seeing as I can't use my laptop. I ran some test that told me it failed because my dst drive , or something hard drive 1, system E I'm not really sure.
Sometimes when I turn it on it will say "starting automatic repair" or something I'll leave it on then the screen just goes black, it'll still be running. I really don't know what's wrong with it...it's very sudden my laptop never occurred problems before. It won't even load when I press f12.I have a HP ENVY m6 sleekbook. It's not touch screen. It has beats audio but, it doesn't have a press able beats audio button. No CD/disk drive I can't load disk in my laptop. The batteries built in Model # m6-k010dxHard drive short dst fails extensive test....
I am having a major issue with my Dell XPS L702x laptop at the moment, in that it cannot boot up at all, rendering it completely unusable.
When this first happened, the laptop used to progress through the dell screen, the 'starting windows' screen, and then just hang at a blank screen, or with a blank screen with the windows 7 background and a mouse cursor. This happened in both normal startup and attempting safe mode.
I have tried starting in best last known configuration, resetting the bios to default settings. I eventually got startup repair to work, but it didn't do anything, nor did system restore.
I run diagnostics, and receive this error right at the beginning of the test:
ERROR CODE 0146.
Msg: Error Code 2000-0146
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - self test log contains previous error(s).
I continue the diagnostics and everything else passes okay.
However, now when I try to boot my PC up in normal or in safe mode, I get past the dell and windows startup screen and instead of the hang I simply get a blue screen error:
I have also had the blue screen errors c000021a, and 0xc0000221. But primarily am now getting the bad_system_config_info every time.
