Restart your machine and while rebooting, press F8 button and boot your system on safe mode. After booting in safe mode, try to reboot it again.

Hello Sir

I am afraid that the hard drive is corrupt. It needs to be reformatted and reinstalled. There is also a good possibility that the hard drive will need to be replaced I am afraid. To make sure ask the technician or who will attend to it to disconnect the hard drive from your laptop. Plug it in an enclosure and copy all of its contents before reformatting. IF IT DOES WORK then don't let them trick you that it needs to be changed as it is just a case of corrupt files and a reformat / reinstall will do it good. In this manner you hit 2 birds with one stone and you get things back up and running :)

Hope that this solution helped you :)

Best Regards
Alx :)

More than likely you have a hard drive failing/failure.

You should have it looked at if you are not "comfortable" doing it yourself.

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.
