    I also have the same problem and I did a preboot system assessment where it tests the hard disk and it came up with: hard drive test DST short stated test

    Error code:1000-0142 Drive self test failed, status byte = 79



    I hope it doesn't mean I've lost all my data as I need it for work.

"A disk read error occurred. Please click ctr +


You have as it states, a disc read error which means you have errors on the hard drive.
As soon as you get into your system run CHKDSK/F, that will attempt to restore the damaged files.
Make backups and look for a replacement hard drive.
Hope that helps.

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.

May I know whether the Hard Drive is listed in the BIOS? Try reinstalling the Windows using the Windows OS disc.

A disk read error occurred


More than likely you have a hard drive failing/failure.

You should have it looked at if you are not "comfortable" doing it yourself.

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.
