My computer screen says "A Disk Error, Press CTRL+ATL+DEL to Restart". When I do that it comes back to the same thing. What's wrong with my computer? Do I need a new hard drive?

Switch it on when it says HP on the screen press F8 i think its one of the F keys it tells you at the bottom of the screen. then run the system repair.
Or when it says HP on the screen press F2 to go in to the bios use the arrow keys to move across the tabs,go to the BOOT tab & change the boot order 1st HARD DRIVE
2nd CD/DVD DRIVE
3rd ? what ever
As long as the hard drives or CD/DVD drive is 1st then it's all good.
use the F5 & F6 Keys to move the order of the list.
Coz at the minute it's trying to boot from A disk witch is usually the floppy drive & there probably isn't a floppy drive on the laptop but if there is check theirs no disk in it coz no computer will boot with a floppy disk in it's drive unless the boot order has been changed.
GOOD LUCK......

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.

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.
