Windows 7: Start up freezing long boot times

error code 0f00:1332 (and some bad blocks?)

I have two computer. My desktop is nice andd runs great. But my laptop I use occasionally when I play Final Fantasy 11. Pretty much all I use it for.

Lately I come to notice issues with it. It will be about 30 seconds before the color appears at the STARTING WINDOWS screen. When they do appear it hangs there for anywhere from 40 seconds to 2 or 3 minutes. Then the screen is black from about 30 seconds to a minute. Then I see log in screen.

I have checked my Event Log in regards to start up. I have seen Event ID 100, 102. I have seen some in the 200s. Sorry I can't name all I seen here, I am doing this from pure memory. Right now I am running dianostics.

Something popped up halfway through the tests. I'll type it word for word
Error Code 0142
Msg: Error Code 2000-0142
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - Self Test Unsuccessful. Status: 79
The given error code and message can be used by Dell Technical Support to help diagnose the problem.
Do you want to continue testing?

Also on the diagnostic screen RIGHT NOW I see
** Hard Drive - DST Short Test **
Test Results : Fail
Error Code 2000-0146
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - self test log contains previous errors.

HERE: Error code: 2000-0146 - Disk Drives (HDD, CD/DVD, Blu-ray) Forum - Disk Drives - Dell Community

I did as it said and ran a custom test on hardrive and got:
Error Code: 0f00: 1332
Msg: DISK - Block 7755285: Interrupt Request(IRQ) did not set in time

It gave me the option to continue I chose yes.. It is now still running
Soemthign else came up
Test Results: FAIL
Error Code 0F00:1332
<sg: DISK - Block 7755392: Interrupt Request (IRQ)

I am sure more will come up

The system in question is a Dell Studio 1555 Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium. I got it around early January of 2010. On December 25, 2010 nearly every part failed. It was under warranty then so all parts replace. Since then its worked fine. The warranty wor out just this january.

I am not sure wwhat to do. I am not computer savvy. all I do on a computer is play video games like Everquest 2 and Final Fantasy 11. Read news. Look up weather. Sometimes watch movies. On laptop I recently deleted World of Warcraft (THANK GOD) which oddly helped boot up time.

I've gone into MSconfig and clicked HIDE ALL MICROSFT SERVICES and unchecked what was left. I have tried virus scans. All turned up clean. I have used Wise Care for registry and disk cleaning. It helped somewhat.

When I started this thread I was like "okay hangs at start up and a few event errors. These people will telle me some diagnostics to run and some repairs to do. I'll give it a shot." I started to get these hardrive errors right as I began typing. thats why things seemed disorganized. Right now I don't have any money to spare and I love my laptop and if there is a way to save it Iwant to.

It sounds like your harddrive has bad sectors. Error code 0f00: 1332 - Laptop General Hardware Forum - Laptop - Dell Community

Back up your data.

How do I fix it? How do I make my laptop useable again and correct these "bad sectors"?

Hi StarOcean2087,

Not sure if troubleshooting will help in this situation. 'Error Code 2000-0142' indicates 'Hard Drive Failure'; only 'Hard Drive' replacement is likely to fix it. Please check the list of diagnostic (PSA) error codes: Dell Community

'Hard Drive' is a 'self-replaceable unit' in 'Dell Studio 1555'; you may want to replace it yourself (if comfortable): Documentation

It appears that the 'Hard Drive' still permits you to boot to 'Windows'. Please backup all 'personal data' on an 'external media'. The current state is very volatile and may cause the 'Hard Drive' to become completely non-functional (Leads to data loss).

Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.
