Re: 'ERROR CODE:0141, MSG ERROR CODE: 2000-0141, HARD DRIVE:- NO DRIVE DETECTED'

Hello I am wondering if anyone has tried updating bios yet?  I have the same issue on a brand new SSD.  It does not seem to want to use this new drive on a regular basis.  It has ran just fine for the last two months and now this error code is appearing.  Inspiron 1505 here.

Thanks

I have the Optiplex 755 with the 0141 Error. It's the same harddrive that has been working for years and even works fine in my external case, the HDD works 100%.

After testing new cables etc I came to the conclusion that I need a Bios Update, I got this idea from seeing that my Bios was version A04 and the latest online is A21.

Makes perfect sense to update the BIOS right? ..... wait a minute, I can't access the harddrive so how am I going to use the DCCU Utility? Well I can't haha!

Can anyone please tell me how to update the BIOS using my USB stick which I know is bootable as it runs the Windows 7 Install app on it.

PLEASE HELP Smiley Happy

Hi DomJacksonUK,

Welcome to the Community,

For steps to create  and flash BIOS using USB stick refer to this link below :

Hope this helps,

Hi

I am having the same issue on my laptop but it is happening sporadically. The laptop was purchased in 2008 so I guess its pretty old but then it was used by my parents so not subjected to the usual rough usage and wear and tear.

Could it be a HDD issue if it is coming up sporadically and not all the time ? I have re installed the OS but no respite and yes some other symptoms I am seeing are 

a) Very slow boot times 

b) Laptop hanging a lot and crashing

I would have expected the laptop to never start up if the HDD goes bad but in my case sometimes its starting and sometimes giving this error message.

Hi hpant,

Welcome to the Community,

As per your observation it does sound like a failing HDD.

Did you run the hardware diagnostics(tap F12 on start up,Dell logo,select Diagnostics)?Did you get the exact error code/message as posted by the original poster?

Also please post your full system model  and Windows version.

Thank You

Thanks Roshan. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 running on Windows 7 Home edition. In case the HDD has gone bad , can you please give me some rough estimate on the costs involved if I get it checked and fixed from Dell India ?

I did carry out the diagnostic tests and I got the following error codes

First I got 2000-0142. When I opted for the testing to continue, I got 2000-0146.

Later during the advanced diagnostics of my HDD , I got the error code 0F00:0244saying uncorrectable data error or edia is write protected.

Incidentally I read somewhere that in the BIOS changing the SATA setting from AHCI to ATA fixes this up. What exactly is that ?

Your hard drive is physically faulty and must be replaced.  No BIOS setting will fix the problem - you need a new drive.
