The first thing to do is extract your data. Recovery means TOTAL RELOAD. The disks for recovery were to be generated when the unit first went into service (rescue, recovery disks). If you did not make those, the files should be on the D:\ drive. BUT Recover all data before you do anything.

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart.
This will set the boot order
If this fails you might try some of these
Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

An disk error occurred ctl alt & del to restart


You should be more specific as to when the problem occured as the solution for each instance would be different. However since there is no other information, please proceed with the following generic solution.
if there is a disk error you should either press ESC (to remove the alert window on the screen) or hit CTRL + ALT +DEL.
within windows you will get the option to start Task Manager. Choose Task Manager. Locate Windows Explorer in the list of processes, select it and press End Process.
All your windows along with desktop and system tray will disappear.
Then within task manager Goto File > New Task.
A Run command window will open. type in explorer.exe and press enter. Your windows along with desktop apps will restart and this time there wont be an i/o error.

A disk read error occurred press ctl-alt-del to restart goes back 2 same scrn


Sounds like the hard drive has errors.
Boot to a windows XP cd.
Repair using the windows console.
at the repair console type:

chkdsk /R (hit enter)

Let that run, it takes a long time.
If it's able to repair the drive enough for operation it will.

If it cannot you will be forced to replace the hard drive.
