is there any publicly available reference guide as to what to do with these error codes?-what is the official verdict from dell on these codes?

for example, in http://tinyurl.com/3u6k22c see vipin's comment on 3-2-09 12:28pm could that official or each one interprets it differently?

an example:
------------
Diagnostic Test->0142 error code
Extended systest -> OK
symptom Treet Test-> error code OF00: 075D
msg:- DISK_0 -Self Test read error
------------
and the below pictures..

In my personal experience what these are good for, is to not have to complete the troubleshooting scripts that the dell techs use, and immediately initiate a warranty replacement....

I know that's not exactly what you asked, but I thought I would offer my personal experience with them..... Basically their own diags has shown the drive to be failed..... If under warranty, that should be sufficient enough to initiate an exchange.....
