My computer harddrive has a problem


Causes of Disk Read Errors WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Test all Power and Data leads that attach from Motherboard to your hard drive, IDE,SATA make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd \ cd and floppy if applicable have secure dust free connections. Computers need all electrical power and data to travel through every working device its and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error b> There are many different types of disk read errors that can show up on your computer screen during various usage efforts. Be aware as to what you were doing and what task your computer was attempting to perform at the time that the disk read error showed up. This may be a very simple issue, or it may become very complex and involve a data loss threat. Using the process of elimination for determining the error reason can save you time and money.

CD b> Click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer this may vary depending on what operating system you have extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occured Right click on the error message select properties you will see all details about the error or click start type in event viewer press ENTER you might be able work your way through the problem. With any kind of disk read error, the best of luck will be that this is just a problem with a CD that you are attempting to use on your computer. To determine this, remove any CDs or floppy disks from your PC and reboot your computer. Wait and see if it turns back on without any error messages. If so, all is well and you merely need to check the CD you were attempting to use for damage. b> Windows Installation b> Sometimes a Windows repair will alleviate the problem of a disk read error. To find out if your error message is actually related to a Windows environment problem, get your Windows installation CD and reload the CD. Do not reinstall but rather choose the repair option. This might correct the problem. b> Hard Drive b> If the problem is with your hard drive, you will hopefully have previously created a mirror image to protect your data. If so, you can breathe easily because your hard drive data is safe and you can simply replace your hard drive if need be. If you do not have a backup and the problem is with your hard drive, you may need to use a recovery service or do further research regarding how to recover your data on your own. b> Reseat Your Hard Drive b> If the disk read error message does not come until your system has already completed its bootup, then it is probably originating from the OS (operating system). It is possible that your BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is simply unable to locate the drive. Since the BIOS is responsible for the booting-up process, it will typically be the origination of the disk read error message. If this is the case, you may want to try reseating your hard drive. Be very careful when attempting this because you have to manually remove and replace the physical hard drive in your computer. b> Bad Spot b> There may just be a bad spot on a disk. Consider whether or not you received this message when you were attempting to access a rarely used file. Check to see if you receive this message after turning your computer off and on again and attempting to access a file that you commonly use. Using a disk error checker utility scanner will assist you in narrowing the problem to this if it is the cause. Hope this helps.

Click the "Tools" tab at the top of the hard disk "Properties" window.

Fix a Cycle Redundancy Check Error


The "Cyclic Redundancy Check" error is a Windows error message telling you there's a problem reading data you're trying to access.


The root of this problem could either be a damaged storage device or a corrupt file.

Windows has built-in tools to attempt to fix to this problem, and avoid further errors.


Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left-hand corner and click "Run."

Type in "cmd" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will open a black command prompt box.


Type in "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter."

If you receive a message saying the disk will be checked the next time the system starts, press "Y" and then "Enter."


Restart your computer by closing the command prompt box and selecting "Shut Down" from the Start menu.


Wait for the disk scan to reach 100 per cent.

This may take awhile.

When it completes, your drive errors may be fixed.


Avoid future problems with this type of error by replacing the file that caused the problem.

For example, if you got the error when using a text document, open the document and copy all the text (press "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time and then "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time).


Create a new text document and paste the text in by pressing "Ctrl" and "V" simultaneously. Save the new file, and delete the old document.


Hope this heps
