SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: disk read error occured
If not give it a go and do a repair if needed again!
1- You may have a corrupt MBR (master boot record)!! You will need to reformat and do Fdisk /mbr to delete the master boot record!! Save all data first as this will not allow you to access any of your data as all file location addresses are located in the MBR!!
2 - Your harddrive may have a bad sector get a zerofill tool(low level formatting tool)!! This will rewrite you HD's sectors putting them back to factory spec's!! Maxtors is called Maxblast you can get it from thier site!!
3- or it could be a defective drive, but most read errors are due ot corrupt MBR or a bad sector!!

These problem is usually caused when the harddisk of the computer system is Bad.
Purchase another HardDisk and Prepare it for use by formatting and installing the Operating system on it.(either Win7,win vista etc....)
