I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 labtop running Windows XP.
Did you get that error code from a diagnostic application? Where exactly is it from?
I was running the Diagnostic Express Test.
From DOS right? Go to Custom Test, run the Tests on ALL Devices, and select "Quick Tests Only", after the diags has run on all devices, select the "Errors" tab on the right hand side. If 0f00:65d occurs then it should show the error msg, which will tell you what it means. If you don't know what the msg means, post it here and I'll see if I can tell you what it means.
It means that your hard drive has failed.
What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

Does that mean I have to replace the drive or repair it?
