Went to boot up and it came upwith: A disk read error ocuredPress CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart This happened 4 or 5 times.What caused this? It then went to chekdisk and checked the system and then started!!Is there a way to start checdisk from the F numbers?
you can start checkdisk manually by (in XP)going to startruntyping 'cmd'enterthen typing chkdsk /fthis will run the chkdsk and automatically fix anythink found
Thanks for coming on this BUT it did not get as far as to the start button, it just came up disk error in a black screen.
Try continually pressing F8 on startup, until the advanced startup menu appears. When it appears, using the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard, choose the "Last known good configuration" option and press Return.
A disk read error is really bad news - even if it goes away as the drive warms up, it indicates a failure is possible at any time.You should be fully backed up in case of such a disaster - if not, DO IT NOW.
