Hello everyone,

I got a Dell a year or 2 back but now the computer will not properly start up, after switching it on, the Dell symbol appears with a loading bar then the screen goes black with a cursor for a couple of secs then it just stays black.

I tried reseating the hard drive, the memory and the video cards but the problem persists. I ran a system diagnostic? And it came up with:

Error code 0148
MSG: Error Code 2000-0148
MSG: Hard/Optical Drive...

Had a quick look online and from what I can see, it appears like I need a new hard drive? Could you guys please let me know if that's right? The computer is still under warranty - would I be best trying to replace the hard drive myself or not? Any advise would be greatly appreciated - I don't know much about computers!!


Thanks so much.

First try and reseat all the SATA cables to the hard drive and optical drives. Also reseat the cables to those drives connected to the motherboard.

If reseating the cables does not fix the issue, then your best bet is to call Dell Tech Support and give them that exact error code for them to send you a new hard drive/optical drive.
