First make sure there is no disk in your cd/dvd drive. Some users set there bios to boot from cd/dvd and forget there is a disk in the drive and then get this error. It no disk is in the drive, resart the computer and start pressing the F8 keyy until a menu comes up with options for Safe Mode. Also, you can choose to repair but you need the Operating System disk.

Wont boot up says a disk read error occurred. press ctrl alt del to restart. i do this and the same message comes up


Hello,

your operating system files is corrupt, that's why your computer is showing you that message.Your computer cannot but except the it is repaired.

To repair your windows, you will need the Cd that came with your computer, that's what you will be needing in other to repair your system.

Also, you can still boot your system by booting in safe mode. To boot in safe mode, restart your computer and immediately, keep pressing "F8" on your keyboard, a black screen will come up and you will see a booting option, scroll to safe mode and press enter.

Once your system boots up in safe mode, you can restart your system and the problem might be solved.

Take care.

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.
