    The system is not recognizing the hard drive and will not start up.

    I need to replace the hard drive.

    I am unable to find a tech manual to do so..How do you open the Averatec laptop systems to replace the hard drive?

    Thank you

I actually just had the same problem. I replaced the hard drive and I still had the same problem. The tech at the local pc repair shop said it was an internal problem...possibly the motherboard

1st check all your optional drives (floppy, cd rom, usb) that they are NOT connected. If there is anything connected - disconnect or eject them.

If the system still does not come up - you have a hard drive problem, and you will have to get a new hard drive.

A disk read error on boot is an indication that the hard disk drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

If the system is under warranty, then contact the manufacturer/warranty provider. If not under warranty then you have to replace or have the hard drive replaced for you by a technician.

Portable hard drives are fairly inexpensive ($100 or less normally) and labor to replace one should run $50 to $100 or so.

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.

Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart error


Is it a black screen right when you boot your computer? If so this could be a fatal disk error and the harddrive has crashed.

There is no easy fix other than to replace the harddrive.

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.
