    have you checked that there are no disks in the drives. If the bios is set to boot from floppy, cdrom etc... and you have a disk in the drive then it will not be able to pick up the system files

    Have you tried to boot to Safe Mode? Have you tried to boot to a Recovery/Restore Partition?

The drive is fine. Run Acronis Disk Directory, or the GNU Parted LiveCD. Resize your partition so that the end is not at the end of the disk.

This error means there is probably something wrong with the drive itself. I would reccomend having the hard drive replaced. Was the computer new or used?

Hi. Every time I turn my Toshiba Satellite Laptop on (A305-S6905) it turns on normal then it goes to this black screen and says "A disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart." I...


The disk read error message appears when the motherboard can't read what is in the hard disk and use it to launch the Windows boot process.
It means that the hard disk is dead and everything on it is lost, including the recovery partition that new laptops use instead of the recovery disks. You will have to replace the hard disk (a quite complicated job that only an experienced person should do) then order a recovery disk from here

and use it to reinstall Windows.

Old machine, trying to rehab for daughter. Turn on, seet Toshiba screen, then see "Disk read error, cntrl+alt+del to reboot"


You have one of two problems. Either your operating system crashed and you will need to get windows reinstalled on the computer or your hard drive crashed.
If the hard drive crashed you will need to replace the hard drive first and then also reinstall windows.
In both cases it is needed to reinstall windows.
This is probably something a computer technician should take care of.

If you want it free, you may have to download a copy of windows from a torrent site like isoHUNT, then download your drivers from toshiba.
If you download the same version of windows that was installed, you may be able to use the COA windows key on your laptop

Disk wont spin


The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.
