Vostro hdd problem.

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

When I run the Del built in diagnostics accessed from the F12 boot menu
error 2000-1846 is reported. After changing the HDD the diagnostics reports
that the errors are still there. Testing of the HD when removed from the
machine with the manufacturers diagnostics and with Spinrite 6.0 shows that
there is nothing wrong with it. Fitting a different hard disk still results
in the same errors. Booting diagnostics from the CD drive shows the disk is
working AOK that suggest there is not a controller problem. Can someone
please tell me how to I clear these error messages?
