I'm afraid this suggests that your hard drive is damaged and the pc cannot read from the boot.ini file. You can try one thing but its a last hope really, when the pc starts to boot up, keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode screen, where you will highlight the line 'Last Known Good Configuration' and press enter and seee if it will reboot into Windows, but if not the below paragraph will apply. You will have to get the drive checked out, by means of an 2.5" ide to usb powered connector, which will connect to another pc's usb port to enable you to perform a disk check and a repair if possible of the bad sectors, or take to a local repairer where they should have the required adapters.

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.
