    I’m in a sticky situation. My Dell Inspiron 1545 fell of a small table; at first it worked but after a min or so it crashed and now it won’t boot anymore. I did this system test you can do at startup and got the message: ‘Error code 2000-0142. Hard drive 0 Self test unsuccesful. Status: 69′. I didn’t know what it mean, but you really give me the correct answers.
