예전에 겪었던 문제 해결 방법.
window나 linux 상관 없이 문제 발생.
I am getting the ” A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart”
My computer hadrware is only 4 months old. I have the following:
ASUS A7N8X-X MB AMD XP 2500 Barton Maxtor 80G HDD 7200 ATA 133 512mb DDR 400 350W power supply Window XP Home Edition
Two days ago I went to boot my computer then I got the above error. I tried repeatly to restart, each boot ended with the same disk read error. When I pressed F8 to go into SafeMode, nothing happened. So I booted from my Win XP disk and preformed a Repair. I was then able to start Windows and continue to use the computer. I scanned my computer with the latest updates from McAfee and found No Virus. I shut-down XP and tryied to boot again and Win XP loaded with no problem. I thought I fixed the disk read error with the repair until the next day when I tried to start my computer again. I was shocked to see that I got the same ” A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart” Error.
So I completed another Windows XP Repair, but this time I ran a chkcsk twice, no errors were found. I checked my boot.ini and it was exactly as a default WinXP home edition boot.ini should be. I then ran the computor for 24 hrs scheduling virus scan to run. The computer ran with no problems for 24 hrs. I then shut down Win XP and restarted immediately after and had no problems. So I thought I fixed the problem until the next day when I tried to start the computer. This time I got the Microsoft page stating that they were sorry for the inconvience but Windows was not able to start dur to ….please pick an option……..Safe mode, start normally with last known configuration, etc. The Windows XP screen would pop up but the horizontal moving light would continue to go without loading Win XP. I then repeated to restart until I got the same ” A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart” Error.
Please help !!!!!!!!
I do not know if I have a virus causing this or if my harddrive is damaged.
Any information to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated and would be great value to all others out there. I searched fthe Internet for many hours to only find this webpage with any kind of help to this disk read error problem.
Re: A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL ALT DEL to restart 1 – Have you tried a different IDE cable? If not give it a go and do a repair if needed again!
2 – You may have a corrupt MBR (master boot record)!! You will need to reformat and do Fdisk /mbr to delete the master boot record!! Save all data first as this will not allow you to access any of your data as all file Location addresses are located in the MBR!!
3 – Your harddrive may have a bad sector get a zerofill tool(low level formatting tool)!! This will rewrite you HD’s sectors putting them back to factory spec’s!! Maxtors is called Maxblast you can get it from thier site!!
4 – or it could be a defective drive, but most read errors are due ot corrupt MBR or a bad sector!!
