Screen says" Loading PBR for descriptor


And again and again and drives you up the wall.OK-boot sector is corrupted, or hard drive is going south.What you can try is system restore.On boot see which button is designated for that-usually f10 or f12.Start tapping that button and follow instructions. If that failed, the only option is to reinstall OS.If you have a lot of stuff that you want to save, install Windows in different folder, say WindowsA.All your stuff will be saved on the Hard drive-My Documents.Good luck and keep us posted.

Can not get pass the 'disk read error occurred,press ctrl+alt+del to restart,


This likely means your hard drive in your computer has crashed or been damaged. I would recommend trying to reinstall your operating system and in the process format the drive if this does not work replace the drive.

A disk read error occured press ctrl+alt+del to restart...how to fix it?


This is not a good error but there are two things you can try.
1. Physically remove the hard drive from your computer then reseat/reconnect it. This will ensure it is connected securely. 2. Physically remove the hard drive, attach it to another computer (either internally or with a USB adapter) and run a CHKDSK. Once completed, put the drive back in your computer and boot it up.
There is a slim chance this will fix your issue, but honestly you probably have a dead drive. I hope you backed up.

A disk error occured, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to Start. ( it appears when i start my pc after performing a check disk. Anyone can help me resolve the problem?


did you use chkdsk/f ?

It might also depend on what your system was formatted to was it NTFS

Ctrl alt del is not unusual to be called after running DOS fixes, unless this is a loop

Thanks for using FIXYA

Ctrl + Alt+Del


Hi

is it a usb keyboard or a ps2(round connector) keyboard? the problem is most likely that due to the computer not having started up properly the keyboard is not properly configured / installed by windows.

to get rid of this problem, you need the old type of keyboard, turn off the computer, and plug in a keyboard to the ps2 connector.

green one is for the mouse, the other is for the keyboard, plug in a keyboard, then turn the computer on, you should be able to press CTRL+ALT +DEL now and ones you sign in to the computer it should install the usb keyboard and it should work from now on, just make sure the keyboard is not disconnected or port changed when the power is off from the computer that cause the configuration loss.
