Hi

Thank you for your query

It would seem from your error message that your hard drive has failed

Do you hear any type of clicking noise coming from your laptop?

Please book into a reputable PC repair shop for repair

Regards
Shauqat

I have a Dell mini netbook Inspiron 910 when I turn the pc on it says a disk read error occurred press ctrl+Alt+Del to restart when I do that the same thing keeps coming up what do I do ???? Please help


It sounds like your hard drive has failed.
Make sure that you have removed all removable media like diskettes, CD, DVD, or flash drives from the machine to confirm. If after removing these items you continue to receive this error, then most likely the hard drive has failed.
Take the notebook in to a service center to have the hard drive replaced and the operating system installed.
Hopefully you have a backup of your data, since it is all most likely lost.

Dell mini inspiron 910. On boot " a disk read error occurred press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart " when I do that the same message appears please help me.


I think you have a hard disk error.
Use your recovery disk, or better still Windows Installation disc, and start the boot up using the menu to select "repair system". That will save you the trouble of having to reinstall all of your software and settings.
If it won't work, a format of drive C will fix your errors but you will have to restore all of your dadt.
Hope this helps.

Hello, While trying to boot up, I received the message, "disk read error occurred. Press ctrl+alt+del". The same message appears after I press ctrl+alt+del. What can I do to resolve the issue? Thank...


This is called a disk error which generally means your disk has failed. You need to get your data off it if it is not backed up. You will have to replace the disk.
A local computer shop might, just might, be able to install it into a second computer and read the data. The more you fuss with it the lower your chances of getting any data off it.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

hi there, a disk read error doesn't sound like a CD drive to me. It sounds like a hard drive failure to me. My advice is to take out the hard disk and take it to a person that knows about hard drives.

I have a optilex 170l dell computer i replaced the hard disk and now i gives me a disk read error occured press ctrl+alt+del to restart


Press ctrl+alt+del to restart is just an instruction. Did you do it?
What happened? Was it read? Tell us more. Send your e-mail for
us to give you our feedback.
By the way, assuming that it did not work, Your hard disk must be
configured to your PC, by running a software driver for your new hard
disk. You can download it from the internet by running search " hard
disk driver". Just specify the brand.

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.
