Disc Read Error

  Poet_Laureate 17:54 19 Apr 2006

Can Anyone help please? I have just purchased a custom PC, AMD64 4200 x2 Dual Core, 1024mb(PC3200)Asus A8N SLI MOBO 2 x 200GB Maxtor SATA HDD, etc etc......on starting up I get a message "disc read error occured, press cont+alt+del to continue", I do this and the same thing happens. The only way I can get the PC to start properly is when I reboot I hit the F8 and scroll to the 1st HDD and hit enter, it then starts ok. Has anyone any suggestions please?

Thanks in advance.

Where from? If it's under guarantee call the seller, it should just work.
