I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop that is about 3 1/2 years old. Upon boot-up I get an error message stating that the hard drive is about to fail. I have online backup so data recovery is not an issue. I ran the Dell diagnostics and received error code 2000-0146. The computer is out of warranty, so I am getting no help from Dell. They do have a link to something called an Iola system solution, which I ran and it showed some 200 errors on my computer, including an error on the hard drive. It claims to be able to fix it all for $40.

My question is, can this software fix my problem, or do I need a new hard drive? I don't want to waste $40 on this product if what I really need is a new hard drive.

I did also try removing the hard drive, booting it from a disk, and then replacing it. Nothing changed. The computer seems to run slower every time I turn it on, so I am avoiding using it except to try to fix the problem.
