Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire One, ZG5 ~ It was purchased in December, 2008. It worked well for several months but now when I turn it on now I get this message
A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
I do that, but it does the same thing over again. I've tried F2 & F12, but that doesn't do anything but show me settings, which I'm not comfortable changing.
What is wrong and what do I do?
After searching and reading many doomsday comments about this error message and what it means and what caused it, I found the simple solution with the Acer Aspire One ZG-5 mini-laptop displaying the "A disk read error occured... Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" error message, the probable simple solution is to Press Alt+F10 during reboot and the laptop will go into the Acer eRecovery mode.
Also, it is a good idea once you have restored or recovered the operating system to go on the Acer website and download any patches or updates available.
Hope this helps.

its one year warranty.
could be bad hard drive, incorrect settings or corrupt windows / linux installation.
A remote possibility could be faulty motherboard, unlikely though.
well if you already took it to acer get their opinion on it, you could try the recovery cd's that you got with the unit if you got any?

Well since this is still under warrenty I would take it to ACER to have them figure it out because what i am going to tell you would not only cause you to give me a horriabe rating but anyhow its the mainboard! This is the problem yes I had to switch one out with this very problem is why i am even responding to this issue take it back to Acer you be gad you did!
