Question about Acer Aspire One D255 Laptop
A disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart
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.

sounds like maybe a hard disk problem but there is a couple of things to try go in the bios and see if it recnioze it and if it dont have u recently removed the drive sometime a loose connection will cause this.but if u have not removed the drive u should still check it to make sure it has a good connection.

This could be a sign of the hard drive having a problem.
I would recommend that you do a scan of the hard drive to check for errors.
You didn't mention which operating system you have, but you need to click on My Computer and then right-click on your hard drive. Go to Properties and then Tools.
Once there, select the option that tells you to check the disk for errors. Check the entire drive. Note that this will not run right away. You must restart your computer, as the utility needs exclusive access to the hard drive.
If this type of error reoccurs, it's time to back up your data, 'cause you probably have a hard drive that is dying.

This means you HDD is either corrupt or faulty, try downloading a copy of Hirens BCD to try to access the HDD (or use and external HDD enclosure) and if you can, put it back in the laptop, if not reformat it and reinstall windows.

It looks like problem with your Hard Disk Drive, your drive may have bad sector on it. You may have to remove yor HardDrive and connect it to other computer using converter cable which you may get in market or local computer shop to backup your data. If you already have backup with you, register call with acer support website and get it replaced free if under warranty.
If this laptop is not under warranty, you may have to buy new harddrive and replace it and restore your Operating systems, programs and data.
Hope this helps.

it is entirely possible that the boot sector is damaged. if this is the case you need to boot with the cd that came with the machine, or a recovery cd you've made, and load the recovery environment. once their load the command prompt. it should just be a button in vista or 7 and it will automatically load in xp. once loaded type "chkdsk c: /r" no quotes. let it run, this will check for bad sectors and should fix the issue. try and reboot, and let me know what happens. if you don't have the recovery cd's or installation media you can download msdart, which has the recovery console built in. i went ahead and uploaded msdart, download the version you think you need. https://rapidshare.com/files/2296685117/ERD50_x86_WinXP_SP3_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/2914560443/ERD60_x64_WinVista_SP2_blueforce.zip https://rapidshare.com/files/267688033/ERD60_x86_WinVista_SP2_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/1400985026/ERD65_x64_Win7_RTM_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/3314839442/ERD65_x86_Win7_RTM_blueforce.zip
