Hi JOJO0803,

Based from the error message you're getting it sounds to me that your problem there is not software related but is more hardware in nature.Since you're getting a message "disk read error occurred IDE#0" this pertains to a problem with the hard drive itself. It's possible that your hard drive developed bad sectors or errors on the disc itself.

So to be sure I would recommend that you run the hardware diagnostics for your laptop computer especially the one for the hard drive since you're getting this message. If the hard drive fails the test or any other part fails in the test, contact your techsupport and ask for replacement parts if your PC is still under warranty. Otherwise you may have to buy parts for your laptop.

If the hard drive tests passed and all the other hardware tests also passed then you may proceed to troubeshoot the software using the Windows XP Home CD. Boot from the WinXP Home CD, and you get to the setup screen, choose "R" for recovery console and then on the prompt type "CHKDSK /R" let it run, it may take a while. afterwards it will bring you back to the prompt then type EXIT and it will reboot the system, see if that fixes the problem. Worst case scenario you may have to format then reinstall Windows XP again to fix this problem.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

My toshiba satellite L455D-S5976 Laptop says A disk read error occurred, how do i fix this, cause i wanna restore to factory settings but i have no disc for the laptop... Please Help!!!!


hi,
that error message is referring to your hard disk. Some of the sectors are corrupted and it might have to do with the part that contains your operating system or boot manger. You're advised to get a new disk, install a fresh copy of your operating system, and recover your files from the other disk by attaching it to the system like an external drive.
hope this helps

A disk read error occurred


You have problem at the boot sector of the disk. Maybe it's hardware problem (controler, disk) or maybe it's a virus. Shut down the system and try start it up after some minutes. If it start up make a full back up just in case ......

How do i get rid of the KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR on my d600? Occasionally it says UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME instead. Help?


This issue can occur if a requested page of kernel data could not be read from the paging file into memory, or the master boot record is infected with a virus. To further determine the possible cause, you must properly interpret the error message. If both the first and third parameters are zero, then the four parameters are defined as:
  1. 0 (zero)
  2. Page Table Entry (PTE) value at time of error
  3. 0 (zero)
  4. Address of signature on kernel stack
If either the first or the third parameter is not a zero, then the following definitions apply:
  1. Status code
  2. I/O status code
  3. Page file number
  4. Offset into page file
If this is the case, the cause of this issue may be determined from the second parameter (the I/O status code) by using the following information that is listed in a "value of second parameter" followed by "general cause" format:

0xC000000E, or STATUS_NO_SUCH_DEVICE: the drive went unavailable, possibly a bad hard drive, disk array, and/or controller card.

0xC000009A, or STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES: lack of nonpaged pool resources.

0xC000009C, or STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR: bad blocks on the hard disk.

0xC000009D, or STATUS_DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED: bad cabling, non-termination, or the controller is not able to obtain access to the hard disk.

0xC000016A, or STATUS_DISK_OPERATION_FAILED: bad blocks on the hard disk.

0xC0000185, or STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR: improper termination or defective cabling of SCSI-based devices, or two devices attempting to use the same IRQ.








To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method:
Boot sector virus loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); To determine if you have a boot sector virus, run a current virus-checking program, and if needed, disinfect your computer.
Not a boot sector virus loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); View the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that help you determine the device that is causing the error.

Bad block. Stop 0x77 is caused by a bad block in a paging file, or a disk controller error, or in extremely rare cases it is caused when non-paged pool resources are unavailable.

If the first and second parameters are 0, then the stack signature was not found in the kernel stack. The cause of this issue is defective hardware. If the I/O status is C0000185 and the paging file is on a SCSI-based hard disk, you should verify the disk cabling and SCSI termination.

If the I/O status code is 0xC000009C or 0xC000016A, this normally indicates that the data could not be read from the disk due to a bad block.

If you can restart your computer after the error message, Autochk runs automatically and tries to map out the bad sector. If for some reason Autochk does not scan the hard disk for errors, manually start the disk scanner. If your computer is formatted with the NTFS file system, run Chkdsk /f /r on the system partition. You must restart your computer before the disk scan begins. If you cannot start your computer due to this issue, use the Command Console and run Chkdsk /r.

Defective or unreliable random access memory (RAM) is another common cause of this issue.

Verify that all the adapter cards in your computer are properly seated.

Ensure that all adapter card contacts are clean.

Disable system caching in the BIOS to see if this resolves the error.

If this does not resolve the issue, your computer mainboard may be damaged.

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.


Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!

JFS224 change drive order


You need to get into bios to change the boot order. You can usually get into bios by tapping F12, esc, or whatever depending on who wrote your bios. Once you get into bios, you should see something like change boot order somewhere. If you don't know where it is then just keep scanning each page and you will find it. It will be called something "boot order". Use the directions on screen to change it to whatever drive you desire and you should be good to go. If you can't do it then write back and let me know.
