My laptop has developed a bootup error.
On startup I get the following error message on a blank screen
A Disc Read Error Has Occoured
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.
I do that and the error message just keeps coming up.
I can Access the BIOS by F2 ok all seems ok there.
Is It poss the HD is on its way out.
It's possible that it's died. Check the bios to see if it sees the hdd. If it does then try setting it up as first boot. You should also remove any USB peripherals connected in case it's trying to boot from USB.
Have you dropped or jerked the laptop? It might be something as simple as checking the hard drive's physical connection. Open the cover, remove the drive and reconnect it. Obviously with no power source connected.
Newuser2 thanks for the feedback. You're lucky, as a recent storm blew my motherboard, router and modem. BT were very busy in our area and took a week to get back online. That's it for me with desktops, can't be bothered installing a new mobo again and setting up. Laptops only from now on.
