SOURCE: error 2000-0142
The error code you have there means that the Drive Self Test failed. You can try to power down computer, disconnect and reconnect hard drive from the system board. Run the diagnostics , if no error occurs then it's a cable/connector issue, if it failed with the same error, replace you hard drive,
Hope this helps!

That error is normally a bad hard drive. Replacement is fairly easy and not to expensive, but you will have to reinstall a Operating System to the new drive.

Testimonial: "quick and answered my question thanks."
2000-0142 and 2000-0146 are hard drive SMART errors, indicating the HDD will fail.
To boot message about the AC adapter was a BIOS level message that normally appears when a Auto/air ac adapter or other 65 watt ac adapter is used to power the system.
