It's possible that your (hard disk drive) HDD is damaged. Can you pull it out and test it on another system? Also, does the laptop has it's stock RAM or did you add more? If you did, I suggest you remove the new RAM and leave it with the stock one. of can't pull your HDD out, contact your acer center for them to check out your hard disk. its much better if your laptop is under warranty. all technical problems and damages are fixed for free.

If you are getting a read error, it's talking about your hard drive.
Does the drive click when you try to turn the computer on?
Do you have a system CD/DVD that you can boot from and run diagnostics? If so, you might try this tip: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4501608-when_windows_xp_start_primary_fix

If it doesn't work and you still get a read error, you will probably have to replace the hard drive.

Hi. Every time I turn my Toshiba Satellite Laptop on (A305-S6905) it turns on normal then it goes to this black screen and says "A disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart." I...


The disk read error message appears when the motherboard can't read what is in the hard disk and use it to launch the Windows boot process.
It means that the hard disk is dead and everything on it is lost, including the recovery partition that new laptops use instead of the recovery disks. You will have to replace the hard disk (a quite complicated job that only an experienced person should do) then order a recovery disk from here

and use it to reinstall Windows.

It's most likely the disc. I would say it's time to replace with disc with another one.
If you'd like to attempt to clean the disc before replacing it, clean it with an anti-static cloth and see if that helps.
