Check your boot drive, it cannot find an operating system. If in windows could be corrupt files or hard drive is disconnected in the system.

You can check this by booting first in cdrom with a bootable cd, if you got into DOS with command prompt. Your harddrive is at fault.

Hope it helps

Adisk read error occurred


That usually means that your HDD (hard disk drive) is dead and its no longer readable. By start up pres F2 normaly thats the button normaly that will lead you to the BIOS go on overview and see if your HDD is still detected by BIOS. You can also try to see how bed things are by inserting a rescue disk on your CD/DVD drive press F12 when you do that and try to diagnose the problem. You can also try to reinstall your OS(operation system) sometimes that also helps but not in many cases. I Hope that help you a bit.

My computer says disk read error press cntrl alt then nada


In most cases, all recent versions of Windows use Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the Tasm Manager. You can't usually use that key combo to restart your PC.
When you did that, was any application highlighted as 'not responding?' If so, that is where you should start looking for problems.
Otherwise, try to post additional information for us here.

Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart error


Is it a black screen right when you boot your computer? If so this could be a fatal disk error and the harddrive has crashed.

There is no easy fix other than to replace the harddrive.

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del


The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..

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.
