See, so as to solve this error will cost you some money  inanyway, if you want to retrieve your files you need to buy a new hard disk. The solution I am giving you will only work if your drive can still spin up, if not then a professional help might be needed.

. Visit or any retailer similar to it from there buys an external enclosure.

. Now, install hard drive in the enclosure and connect it to your laptop or another PC and retrieve your files efficiently.

How To Get Rid Of Error Code 2000 0146 In The Fastest Way


Error code “0146” in Dell computers’ self-test indicates a failed or failing hard drive. If your computer suddenly crashed or displayed a blue screen error (BSOD) or suddenly booted to the BIOS, it means your hard disk is about to fail and is no longer functioning correctly. Dell advises that you replace your hard drive in case you encounter this error.

But still, try booting your computer in Safe Mode. Start or restart your computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears. In “Advanced Boot Options” screen, select “Safe Mode” then hit Enter. Log in to your account or any administrator account. Next, click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then “Command Prompt.” In the command prompt window, type the following command then hit Enter:

chkdsk /r

This will allow the CHKDSK utility to locate bad sectors and recover any readable information which can help you boot your computer again normally. After this, restart your computer and boot normally and then see if it works. If it doesn’t, the hard drive needs to be replaced. Also, if you are using a regular desktop computer, you might also want to check the cables connected to your hard disk.

Disconnect and reconnect both the ribbon cable and power supply cable from the hard drive.
