Re: A disk read error occured

Your system BIOS no longer recognizes your processor. I'm going to assume you haven't replaced the processor recently, in which case it is a bios error. Can you enter the bios on startup, or does this occur before that? On most computers there will be a message saying something along the lines of "press F1 to enter setup" - of course, it could be F1, F2, F10, F11, F12, DEL or ESC... or possibly another key Try hitting all of those and see if it takes you to a BIOS menu. If you can't get to the BIOS, you're going to have to replace the motherboard. If you can get into the bios, you may be able to detect your processor from there. Without knowing specifically what bios you are using, or what motherboard so I could find the bios information, I can't say more. If you can get into the BIOS, it should tell you what version it is (usually on the top somewhere). Get me that information and we can go from there. If you can't get into the BIOS, it's time to replace your motherboard. Or, honestly, for a system of that age it might be cheaper to just buy a new (or used) computer to replace it.

you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc

I cant identify the prolem

It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..
