    I have a Dell Studio 1558, its about 1-1.5 years old. Ordered it from Dell.com. Anyways I ranned system diagnostics and got a error code 2000-146 like the title says. So what Im wondering is exactly what does this mean for my hard drive?

    More than likely either the drive is failing, has failed or its not being read in the BIOS for some reason. If you have anything on there you want to save like pix, music, documents etc, pull out the drive and get a usb sata/ide connector and hook it up to another computer and see what you can salvage.I have a dell studio 1555 and if im not mistaken it uses a SATA drive.
