Dear rahrah1815,

It appears that what you have is a bad hard drive. First make sure your hard drive has not come loose from the inside. In the Vaio it may be possible for the 2.5 Hd to come lose, usually tehre is a small door with hwo screws in the back that houses the Hard Disk. With the laptop turned off, open the hatch and push the hard drive gently. Then turn it on. If that is not the problem then youmy have to insert your recovery CD and go through the process of reinstalling your OS.

Good luck!

I have a dell inspiron 1318. whenever i turn the laptop on, there is a black screen with a "read disk error has occured" message...it keeps bringing me back to the same screen...what should i do?


Disk read error is indicative of a hard disk drive failure. If under warranty, call Dell for a replacement drive. If not you can buy drives at places like Newegg.com or EBay

Your hard drive has gone to ****.  Get you a new hard drive and re-install the operating system.

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.

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.
