Please how do I retrieve my data on my faulty hard drive? Initially my desktop (dell inspirion) couldn't boot and after running dell diagnostics I had this on the screen
Error code 0141
Message-error code 2000-0141
Message-Hard Drive - no hard drive detected
Please what do I do?

Hi Bennygh,

I would recommend you to check if the drive is visible in BIOS. If it is not, I recommend you to try the drive in another PC. You could try using a Linux Live CD. Sometimes it is really helpful when trying to copy a valuable data. Sadly, if the drive is missing from BIOS, even on another PC, you may need the assistance of a data recovery company to retrieve your data.

Hope this helps
