    there are several things that might be wrong here. We'll start by checking if your HDD has any errors on it. Download this file and burn it to a diskhttp://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/do...

    Boot the Dell Latitude to this CD and run the drive fitness tests. Do you get any errors?

Dear Tari
the error is pointing towards hard disk failure, plz check the data cable, power cable. if you are not familiar with the hardware then you better ask some professional to help you out.

Problem with a disk read error


There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.
