error code 2000-0151

Hi I am a Dell user. I have 1564 Inspiron, right now not in warranty. Lately I  faced blue screen of death, when restarted, Dell logo appears and later a blank screen! On restarting and pressing F12, with the Pre boot system assessment, I discovered its error code 2000-0151.

I do face a cracking noise from the disk. Any possible solutions???

Hi Dr.swap,

That error indicates an "incorrect status" of your optical drive. I suggest you run the Dell diagnostics on your drive. To test your CD/DVD drive from the utility partition:

1. Reboot your system. When you see the Dell logo, hit F12 to enter the boot menu.

2. Select Boot to utility partition.

3. Select Test System.

4. Select Custom Test.

5. Use the arrow keys or mouse to select your CD/DVD drive.

6. Insert a CD or DVD.

7. Click Run Tests.

8. Write down any error messages.

Replace the hard drive with a new one.  Yours is toast.

2000-0146 doesn't mean HD failure. it means the last log contained errors. ANY errors. just dont state that if the information isn't 100%.

Sorry, but drive short test fail means what it says - particularly since it's the first time it's shown up.  The drive needs to be replaced.

Yes I know, is old thread but could be useful for other users.

I can confirm that you have to change your hard drive.

I'm facing the same issue with Optiplex 990... Same noise and same error code. I called Dell support and tomorrow I will receive the new hard drive.

I'm also testing the hard drive with SeaTools for windows and No error during SMART test but at the end didn't finish basic test. 

Here the error code list and the relative fix:

Hi nrjensen,

Welcome to the community

It’s unfortunate that the system is not booting up to windows. The error code 2000-0151 points towards the bad hard drive and you must consider replacing it.  

Please let me know if your system is under warranty. I should be able to help you with it.

Glad to be of assistance.
