Hello,
I would like to if someone can be so kind to help me with an issue I have with my computer. I would greatly appreciated for someone assistance. I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with a Error Code 2000-0146, what does it means? I went to the Dell web page and fallow the instructions and nothing happen.! I try to do F8 nothing, Alt F10 nothing, after I do does prompts nothing happen, the only thing is doing a blinking line on the top left hand corner,. Do I need to buy the Windows 7 64 bit-repair disc? or is there something more worse then a disc? I did the F2,F12 after all that non-sense nothing happen, I would like to know what can I do to get this computer running. I have try on many dell web pages but no luck. I would greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Sincerely yours

You should press F12 multiple times after you see the Dell logo. That should give you access to Dell hardware diagnostics and the factory restore option. This all assumes that your hard drive has not failed.

Good Luck

I suggest you call the Dell help phone number. They might be able to sell you a hard drive preloaded with Windows.

Good Luck
