Hi all, on start up i am getting, A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart", but when i press,"Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" , it always returns to" A disk read error occurred" . i also cant access safe mode (F8). Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
hi kemical , thanks for the swift reply, what i didnt say in my post was that i have that disk running already, but seems to be taking ages, i am running the startup repair option, it has now been running for about 30 minutes, is this normal.
And I've read that running two or three times on the trot is advantageous.
I've had the start up repair, in the past, seem to go on forever. Being an impatient bugger I've hit the big button and cold re-started and Windows has booted straight away. Now I'm not suggesting you do this, more a tale to let you know that something is actually happening.
