How to fix error code 2000 0151 in dell diagonostics?

I am using a Dell laptop vostro 1450. It is about 1 year old. Warantee ran out. I am having problems with hard drive. Many days ago, say 6 months ago, suddenly the pc wont boot! Bios was not detecting the hard drive and so the windows installation window. After a few days i checked bios and the hdd was there! I somehow managed to install windows, it was also booting but the boot was extremely slow. The pc was freezing frequently. And suddenly a bsod occured! I restarted the machine and got into bios the hdd was gone! The hdd gets randomly detected by the pc. One day again the hdd was detected but i was unable to boot. The pc used to show the "starting windows" and then go to disk check. I allowed it to run it found no errors. The system then reboots and when it goes to disk check, i cancel it and the boot process stuck! It would not go further. I decided to go to dell diagnostics. It gave me an error "2000 0151" and told me the hdd was in incorrect status 3E. Pls help! I use win 7 home basic. Hdd is of toshiba. And i dont have money to buy a new hdd.

Sorry man, but if I were to bet on this I would bet you need a new hard drive.

By all means run a hard drive diagnostic test to confirm this. If you have not changed the original disk setup you should have a Dell Utility Partition. You can run a diagnostic from there. See here:
