so recently ive been trying to hook up my lap top to my hdtv and ive been messing around trying to get the screen to display. the other day i turned on my dell inspiron notebook and found that after the boot screen the screen goes black/blank. i can hear the desktop and i hear my mouse so i know that the desktop is there. the monitor is just not responding. i did a diagnostic test on the computer and got the error message dst short test error code 1000 - 0146. What does this mean? is this why my monitor won't respond. please any help would be appreciated. i just want my laptop to work again.

Hi There ksjl92

Welcome to the forums.

A quick google search of the error code you have provided points to a failing or perhaps already failed hard drive. If your machine is still under warranty you may be able to return it to Dell for installation of a new hard drive.

http://www.google.com/search?q=dst+short+t...lient=firefox-a

And the question of the day is; Have you been backing up your data on a regular basis?

You may be able to recover your data if the drive has not totally failed.


Here are some Google links on that subject: http://www.google.com/search?q=recovering+...lient=firefox-a


Hope this helps to point you in the right direction.

is your machine under warranty or not?

do you have your important data backed up or not?

Try to determine what kind of hard drive you have. The name of the manufacturer, the model number of the hard drive and its size and then once we know that we can utilize testing software at the manufacturers website which will determine if it actually is a failing hard drive. The error code you provided indicates that hard drive is possibly failing.

If you answer the the questions that are asked of you then some one of us can help you further. But you need to help us help you by answering the questions properly.

It is a holiday weekend where I live and I will be gone and away from my computer until next tuesday; I will be here for a while today. There are many others here willing to help if you answer the questions asked.
