NTFS Read/Write Bootdisk And Bootable CDs
http://www.bootdisk.com/popfiles.htm
I bought this iso file from here. He charges $4 which is a bargain for this tool. Download the ISO on a working PC with a cd burner and create the boot disk. Boot the problem PC from the CD rom and run chkdsk from the black dos screen.
If this does not fix the problem then open the access door to the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop and find the make and model of the hard drive. Go to the hard drive manufactures web site and download a bootable ISO with the diagnostic utilities for the hard drive. This will tell you if it is fixable. Are you still under warranty? The laptop maker's web site may have a diagnostic tool you can download as well. This will give you a code which the manufacturer's help desk will need to authorize a replacement Hard drive. Other wise find a replacement drive from ebay or other suppler.

The dvd drive has 2 motors in it one to spin the disc and the other to move the laser carriage. If any of them motors fail it will give a disc error reading. Also if you changed the laser make sure that laser carriage is locked on on the drive spline. If you can freely move the laser up and down with out any resistance then its not locked into place.

Cannot Read disk. Operating system not found Error


best way to solve it and recover your data is to take it to the vendor else you can use dos to copy it to your pen drive...lets understand 1st why a vendor can only work with it because its a laptop and the hard disk can not be accessed externally like with a desktop...so dont play with your critical data hope this will help u a lot...

A Disk read error occured PressCtrl+Alt+Del to restart.


If you are getting a disk read error, you will need to use a program like spinrite to fix it or you will need to replace the hard drive.
This is one error you don't want to see. It means your hard drive is failing.
You will not be able to do a system restore as long as you get this error.

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

Disk read error


Hey,

If you receive this error in start up and your computer doesn't load windows. It was unable to read the disk.

Please use your recovery discs (or windows installation cd/dbd) to restore the computer. If the recovery discs don't solve the problem and you still receive the same error, the hard drive is possibly damaged. I would suggest to take the laptop to a professional for testing and fixing.


Thanks and good luck.

I can't do a full system recovery


It's very possible that your hard drive has failed, and the recovery is stopping because it's unable to read/write to/from the drive. Try a new hard drive.
