Hi my dell inspiron will not load up it flashes a blue screen and restarts. I ran a diagnostics and it says Optical device built in self test
error code 1000-0148

ANY HELP?

click here is the Dell website showing that others who have had this problem have been advised that their drive has failed and needs to be replaced.

You should be able to get your PC to boot up if you go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence so that on startup it checks for the operating system on the hard drive before it checks the CD drive.
