Hi, My dell laptop seems to have a problem. It is not recognizing the hard drive. I have tried reinsertion but it still does not respond and shows dell error code 2000-150.Please reply ASAP. Thanks in advance.
Dell error code 2000-150 usually indicates the existence of registry problems in your computer. Registry problems arise when you try to install new programs without properly uninstalling the older ones. However it can easily be solved using SpyHunter which helps to detect and delete spyware, viruses and adware to your computer. Follow the steps given below to resolve your error:
1. Firstly , download SpyHunter from this link:
2. After it is installed on your PC, launch SpyHunter and click on ‘Malware Scan’ for a complete scan of your PC.
3. When the scanning is complete, you need to click on ‘Select all’ and then ‘Remove’ to solve the stated problem.
Unfortunately, that’s a hardware problem and many users with Dell computers have already encountered it. Some also even removed the hard disk and then install it back but still it can’t be detected by the BIOS. Some also tried updating the BIOS on their computer but still nothing happened. Some users who have technical knowledge tried their hard disk on a different laptop and it works.
In your case, since you have knowledge how to remove the back cover of your laptop and disconnect the hard disk, if you have another laptop, try your hard disk there and see if the other laptop detects it. If the same thing happens like other users and the disk was detected and working fine, the problem is with your laptop’s motherboard.
First, you can try updating the BIOS of your laptop. On a different computer, go to Dell Official Site then log in to your account. If you don’t have an account, create one because you need it. Once your account is created, point your mouse over “Support” and click “Support by Product”.
On the next screen, enter your laptop’s “Service Tag” like without quotes “HL4C71S”, for example. Once your laptop is located, on the support page, select “Drivers & downloads” on the left pane then go along the page and look for “BIOS”. Click on it to expand and click “Download”.
Go back to your laptop and reinstall the hard disk then try booting it again. If you can’t get it to boot normally, try it on Safe Mode by pressing F8 before the Windows logo appears. When logging in, select the “Administrator” account. Once you are logged in, run the BIOS file you downloaded to update your laptop’s BIOS. See if this fixes the problem.
On the other hand, if you can’t get the laptop to boot because of the error, there’s no other choice but to bring it to the nearest Dell service center for proper servicing.
