Question about HP Pavilion a1720n PC Desktop
Computer won't boot. Says to hit Cntrl-Alt-Del, but this doesn't work. Eventually the screen says I have a problem communicating with a device connected to my computer. Nothings connected however. Bad hard drive?? It's from file: \Windows\system32\winload.exe Status: 0xc00000e9 Info: unexpected I/O Error has occured.
Running Vista Home Premium.
Any way to fix this???
Run diagnostics on the hard drive (Normally provided either in the F8 or F12 boot menus) and se if you get a failure.
If the drive passes diagnostics, boot to the Vista DVD and run the repair option. (Note: you may have to the Vista repair process 4 or 5 times if there are multiple errors to be resolved)
