First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

I get disk read error when I try to boot it up.


hi there, here are possible solutions to your issue

1. make sure first that your computer would be able to identify your harddrive. you can check this one by going to the setup utility page. upon pushing the power button quickly tap the F1 key or F2 key. then check your Harddrive if motherboard was able to detect it.

2. make sure that there is now usb flash drive or external drive attached to your usb ports when booting up your computer. sometimes if you have this devices attached to your usb this error happens when booting up.

3. Power on the computer and keep on tapping F8 key the moment you push the power button. select safe mode once oyu enter the black screen. if same error occured. then, ou need to use the recovery disk that came with the system and restore the computer back to original factory settings.

When i start my lap top is say's a a disk read error occurred press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart an it keeps bringing me back to the samething?


Remove any CD-ROM disk from the CD-ROM drive.
Disconnect all USB devices.
If your computer has a 3.5" diskette-drive, remove any media from the drive.

Restart.

Your computer is trying to read from your disk-drive,
but it has not been successful, i.e., an "Input/Output Error" (I/O error) has occurred when trying to "read" from your disk-drive.

Find a qualified technician, to see if _any_ of your files can be recovered from your disk-drive.

Is error happens mostly when usb devices or diskettes is inserted to the computer.. The computer tries to boot from them but when there isn't any boot data it just keeps making that error..

Just try to remove all extra usb-devices, cd's/dvd's and floppies/diskettes connected to the computer, so it's only monitor, power, mouse, keyboard and internet that is plugged in..

Gta san andreas error reading disk


I would try a lens cleaning disk and see if that helps. Oftentimes if there's just a little smudge on the lens it can keep certain games from playing while others work perfectly. It's been a while since i used one bought i've bought them from Best Buy and Staples in the past.

Good Luck!

When try to boot up, get disk read error Have Compaq desktop wit Maxtor 20G Quiet 5400 when i turn on my laptop i get "a disk error has occurred. press ctrl+alt+del to restart". i press that but nothing...


try to hit F8  or F10 and get into the BIOS of your system. Once you do that,see if it shows you your hard disk. 
Even before that, remove all CDs / DVDs that are in the CD drive, USB Drives, that are in the computer and try booting it again.

Disk read error, please help


If it was dropped on the floor, more than likely, that spinning hard drive is damaged and has failed. The computer caqnnot load the operating system. You will definitely have to replace the hard drive, and hope the data is recoverable. Keep in the mind, the hard drive is constantly spinning, and any shock at 30G's or more can be fatal.

Picture moving a turntable while its playing, accept, instead of spinning at 33.3 rpm's its spinning at 5400 rpms, faster than most car engines......

Good luck.
