What was the cause of the crash? Could it be related to the SATA drive or the sound problem?
You may need to enable SATA in the BIOS. Look closely at the BIOS options.
In Control Panel/Hardware/Device Manager/Sound look to see if the sound driver is installed. If not, look on the manufacturer's site for the driver and install it.
Make sure the sound is not muted and the hardware connections are correct.

Old machine, trying to rehab for daughter. Turn on, seet Toshiba screen, then see "Disk read error, cntrl+alt+del to reboot"

You have one of two problems. Either your operating system crashed and you will need to get windows reinstalled on the computer or your hard drive crashed.
If the hard drive crashed you will need to replace the hard drive first and then also reinstall windows.
In both cases it is needed to reinstall windows.
This is probably something a computer technician should take care of.

My gateway laptop doesnt read the hard drive and i cannot reinstall windows vista

Sounds like a crashed hard drive, swap it out with a new one.

Take your old hard drive with you when you head out to buy a new one to make sure you get the same kind (they're only two kinds for the most part - IDE / PATA has 40 pins and SATA has two L shape connectors.

Hope this info helps!

My windows crashed. When computer starts and tries to raise windows it restarts. Tried everything, can't access password protected account where important informations stored. Help

To access the data, try removing the drive from the computer and installing it as another drive. There are several external docks that accommodate drives for this purpose.
If the drive is IDE, try an IDE enclosure. If the drive is SATA you can use a SATA usb dock or an enclosure.
You could try repairing Windows using the repair mode. Tap F8 as Windows starts.
You can try booting in safe mode. To start in safe mode, tap the F8 key quickly as Windows trys to start.

Computer crashed. Computer specialist restored drive. now cannot boot windows. Used restore disk. Did not work. computer boots dos screen then shuts down. boots again then shuts down.

Sounds like a Windows issue. Depending on how valuable it is to you to get your data off the drive, I would suggest buying a new hard drive (they are fairly cheap these days), installing Windows on that. Word of advice: Remove your old drive when doing the Windows install, so as not to accidentally select the hard drive your data is on. Once you have Windows installed, shut down your computer, remove the power cord, and install your old drive on a separate IDE channel or SATA connection. If your PC still tries to boot to the old drive, change the boot order in your PC's BIOS.

Laptop wont start. Told hard drive has crashed.

Sounds like you need to replace your hard drive. First you need to figure out what laptop model you have, then look up the specifications on the manufacturer's website to see if you have an "IDE" hard drive, or a "SATA" hard drive. Purchase a replacement hard drive, and install it into the computer. Then reinstall windows xp and you're good to go again.

Installing photo express

Knight, as i have understood when you reinstall windows XP, it can't load photo express. This is probably because you had installed Photo express in your the same drive you had installed your windows. When you reinstall windows that drive is completely formatted and thats why it can't load the software.

Make sure you install photo express in some other drive. You can also rip the setup on a dvd so that you could reinstall it when your window crashes. For window crash, you might like to use an antivirus software like Avast.

I hope that must solve your problem. You might also like to read Photo express manual for specific instructions if it doesnt work.
