Dell Laptop error code 2000 - 0146

Hello All,
I'm at uni with my laptop but have left all my information on my laptop at home ! I have a dell laptop and yesterday it crashed, when i turn it on it shows the dell screen, then a completely black screen with a flashing white curser in the top left hand corner. I ran a test and it came back with the error code "2000-0146." I believe its trouble with the hard drive? It's only 18 months old but i think my warranty has expired. I'm also using windows xp on it.
Is the laptop a write off, or would i be able to salvage it?
Please help as i have a monster php assignment in next week and i need my laptop to work on it!
