Disk Read Error On Loading


Yesterday, i was working on windows 7, not overloading or something, but suddenly i heard the sound of the hdd that you hear when it stops (when you shut-down), and the pc stopped responding except the pointer. I restarted, and it gave me:

Disk read error
Press ctrl+alt+del

I restarted, it sort of booted giving me the 2 choices of windows 7:

-Start normally
-Launch repair

In start normally it loads up the boot screen but just after that it restarts. It restarted and read the hdd like "bzbzbzbz" after post. I entered bios, it read it as 571 gb and some weird stuff.

I happened to have live cd of linux on my usb flash (on which i'm working now), i mounted hard disk drives, they all work! But the "documents and settings" folder is empty.

This problem happened before and i don't know what the cause is?

Is it the mbr, track zero or sata controller? And please tell if i could do something through my usb flash (like launching a specific test or fix)
Hdd: western digital 160 gb 7200 rpm sata

Motherboard: gigabyte, chipset: intel 945g
Os: used to be windows 7
Ram: 1 gb ddr2

Disk Read Error And Recovery Disk Not Working

I have a toshiba satellite c650 that has recently come up with a disk read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some potential solutions that i have read about on the internet. I have made a windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which also has windows 7 installed. When i use the recovery disk and it has loaded the files etc it just brings up a black screen and the cursor. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? I tried booting my acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine. Also does anyone have any suggestions as to why i am getting the 'disk read error - hit ctrl, alt and delete to restart' message?

Read Disk Error

I was wondering if you'd be kind enough to help me? I followed this tutorial after creating a duel boot with windows xp http://blogs. Techrepublic.com.com/window-on-windows/?P=1751 and for some reason i get the read disk error. No matter what i try, nothing seems to work following all the bcd commands, fixmbr and fixboot.

All i want to do is delete my xp partition and start using 7 to it's full on the hdd. I'm sure it's something really simple, but i can't for the life of me figure it out?

Disk Read Error

Well i started a couple of days ago at first when i booted up my computer it came up saying something was preventing it from starting and it could be caused by a hardware change or installed software and it asked me to put in the repair disc. So i did this it managed to fix it for a while then randomly it started again so i repeated what i did last time with out any success so i switched off the computer and tried again same kept happening for about 5 restarts so i gave up and left it. Then the next it works again but when i restart my computer to make sure i get this disk read error with it saying ctrl-alt-dlt to restart so i did this and over and over again it kept coming up.

But then i got the error that i mentioned at the start and so i repeated the process no success but then randomly it works again. This problem keeps on occurring randomly and going away randomly and it is unbelievably annoying as some times it can take minutes to fix sometimes hours. So is there any fix to this problem or is a reinstall of windows 7 the only option.

Disk Read Error Win 7 Wont Load

On monday my computer worked fine in the morning, and then i drove 5 hours back to school and when i attempted to turn the computer on i got a "disk read error press ctl+alt+del to restart"today, i burned a copy of the vista recovery disc to a cd and booted from there and ran a repair. I then also followed instructions from a forum on here that said os was not listed when he ran the repair. That cleared up the disk error problem. However, now my computer will still not load windows. It keeps loading to a windows error recovery screen and i get the options to start in safe mode, normally, or last known working stage and i have done all of those and they attempt to run and then the computer shuts down and restarts itself.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas, i am running to recovery disk again now to see if my operating system can be located. Bout 3 weeks ago the hard drive that came with the computer crashed and we ordered a new one. It seems unlikely to me that the hard drive could have failed in such a short amount of time. I am running windows vista home premium 32 bit on my dell inspiron 1525. Edit 1217 csti am currently running the recovery disk and my screen is at system recovery options and it still appears that my os will not be listed.

Dvd Drive Wont Read Disks - Error Please Insert Disk

I recently upgraded to windows 7. The drive worked fine as i used it to install the os. On start up windows wouldn't recognize the drive. Finding that this was a common problem on dual boot win7 x64 i tried the 3 standard fixes (f8 on start up, change letter of drive, upper and lower field reg edit) i briefly had the drive working but after about 10 minutes (while i was using the drive) it crashed and disappeared.

I went to the manufacturers site and downloaded the latest software for it, windows installed this and said it was working fine, i can now see the drive but it wont read anything, every time i put a disk in (any disk) it tells me the drive is empty when it isn't and spits it out. I have tried the windows troubleshoot program from the support site, it detects a problem but cant fix it.

The device manager shows the drive as installed and working. The lens shouldn't need cleaning as the drive is less than a month old. Please help, i've run out of ideas.system - dual boot xp / win 7 x64, xp on samsung 1tb hdd win 7 on maxtor 200gb hdd, 4gb ram, intel core 2 duo 3ghz, asus p5g43m motherboard, nvidia 8500gt gpu

I have done several clean installs (after completely zeroing out my hdd), from a microsoft store downloaded (windows 7 home premium 64-bit) . Iso file. It installs just fine without any problems, however, in order to get the system to boot to the os, i need to have the installation dvd in the optical drive. Is there a way to correct thisfter completing the os installation, i installed all the latest drivers for my mobo, hdds, odd, graphics card and whatnot, as well as the latest direct x. When installing other programs and games, direct x, physx, and other drivers repeatedly load/install. What might be causing this?

Error In Loading Dll

On certain sites i cannot view videos, for instance youtube, nbcolypics, and netflix instant player. On youtube i receive an error message telling me that i do not have the latest version of adobe flash, and or my javascript is not enabled. In fact, i do have the latest adobe flash and my javascript is enabled.

I do not live in a big city, so i have been trying to trouble shoot this problem on my own. I was under the impression that this was an adobe flash problem, and have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe flash a number of times to no avail. I have done the same for java, checked my firewall settings, internet option settings, you name it and i've probably checked it once if not twice.

Tonight i noticed that when the video does not load there is an error on the page, and each says something about a dll not loading. Is there a safe way that i can check my dynamic link library for any errors, and fix them on my own?

Error code:

Error in loadingdll
Www-core-vfl148882.js

Error 25004 When Loading Office

I have received error 25004 when loading microsoft office. I have been trying for a week to load microsoft office onto my newly purchased hp model hpe-210y and no success. We first tried office 2003 then we purchased office 2007 home and school. The uninstall was extremely difficult. And both times it says install was complete but when you try to run either software you get the error with the statement config.xml is missing. I really do want to make this work. But, my wife and myself both suffer from fibromyalgia the result of a trajic accident were lost our 4th son. So these kind of frustrations can quickly spiral into a major pain, literally.

Office 2007 Not Loading Error 643

New hp desktop (sept) with quad processor, 6mb ram, windows 7 64-bit, mcafee, spyware doctor. Had norton and office 2007 trial which i deleted (used norton removal tool from website). Had no problems with updates until after 11/10/09. Then updates started failing to install, but i didn't notice until several days ago when my outlook window failed to open. Happened to check update log and saw failures after 11/10.

Tried manual downloads instead of auto. Turned off mcafee when downloading. Windows firewall is off. Nothing worked. In desperation, i removed all installations and updates from 11/10 forward.

No luck. Removed office enterprise 2007 in order to reload. Installation failed with following comments: description: microsoft office enterprise 2007 setup did not complete successfully. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Graphics Card Driver Error Loading Windows

Before i start, i'd like to point some stuff out. I am using windows 7 ultimate x64 bit. I run a dell inspiron 530my video card is pny verto geforce gt 220 (nvidia 200 series)now my problem? My problem is that whenever i try loading windows normally, it goes thru the "starting windows" process, but upon the end of that, the monitor just freezes. Nothing happens, no welcome or desktop, can't see my mouse pointer. I narrowed this down to a video card error.

My video card that i bought had said: windows 7 compatible. Well, its not working, and i've tried a lot of stuff. I reinstalled the video card, got drivers from the manufacturer, used the drivers from the cd, reinstalled windows 7, startup repair, system restore, vista compatibility mode with drivers. A lot of stuff. I can run safe mode properly, but i need to know what this problem is, what can i do to fix it, and why is it acting like this?

This card is brand new too. Oh yeah, might want to point out that i used the windows update to get drivers too, that didn't work. The reason i know this is a driver/graphics card issue is because whenever i uninstall the card/driver, the computer works with a lot of graphic issues (no aero, low resolution, etc. )I also had no problem installing windows 7, startup repair couldn't find a reason or solution to whats going on, so please to you microsoft workers, people, community, please help me.

Error - Logonui Exe No Disk - Outlook Exe No Disk

I have windows 7 professional running 64 bit. A very annoying error pops up every five minutes or so. The message varies and can read "logonui exe no disk" or "outlook exe no disk" or "your favorite app. - No disk" depending on what i am running at the time. I have looked at many forums and can see that this error occurred in previous windows flavors. Some answers point to malware or infected file, others seem to think it's a corrupt install file. I have a fresh install of win 7. My previous os being xp.

I have reinstalled win7 and tried repair functions. No luck so far.

Disc Read Error

So back when i was reppin' xp, i believe i had a disc read error that prevented my computer from functioning. Since i am not a computer whiz, my solution to the problem was to wait for windows 7 to come out, which came out about a week after i had the error. A quick fix.

So i managed to install windows 7 and salvage my computer, so to speak. After the installation, every time i booted up the computer, the computer did not take me straight to the log-in welcome screen. Instead i was confronted with 3 options; run xp, run windows 7, or run in safe mode, i believe. (I am not entirely sure of this because this screen no longer occurs, and i quickly adapted to scrolling down to the run windows 7 option instead of inventorying the options into my memory. ) So this sufficed, and i had no qualms with the odd starting screen because, _, the computer worked.

Fast forward a couple months and i was confronted with a bootmgr issue. Not knowing what that was, i looked it up and was able to get a program on a disc to help alleviate that issue. This allowed me to use my computer for 2-3 days, but with intermitten and gradually increasing computer "hiccups". What i mean by a hicuup is that my computer would freeze, in the begining for maybe a minute, and then it would unfreeze and i was allowed to use my computer again. These were not programs freezing, for my music would halt as well as the other program i was using at the time. After a time period elapsed (of my computer being frozen), my computer would spit static through the speakers and start playing again, with the song proceeded. So i missed part of the song, and i resumed doin' work.

As i mentioned before, the freezes progressively got worse. From 1 minute long freezes to 30 minute freezes, to freezes which i presumed were infinite. ( For the last freeze, i went downstairs and watched a movie, as a reference to how long the freeze could last. It was frozen when i returned). Eventually i was no longer able to even access my computer in a functioning state.

Going back to the bootmgr program i put on a disc, i was able to access a very limited program that frankly did nothing, which was probably due to my lack of computer competence. After a couple of days of trying to manage that, my computer failed to even load that program. Now i am confronted with this; a black screen, with or without the disc for the bootmgr, with a blinking cursor. After the cursor blinks a couple times, a disc read error text appears and offers me the option of restarting through ctrl alt delete. Restarting does nothing but further a cyclical response of disc read error.

What do yall think?

Moving Data From 1st Disk To 2nd Disk

I installed my w7 on a single disk pc then i added a second disk for data. I want to have all my data (documents, photos, music, etc. ) In this second disk. In xp, when i did so, i copy my documents from "documents and settings" folder to the new location (d:/) and i was done. Now in w7 i open the "user" folder i found that files are not on a single folder but that there are several document folders (images, documents, etc. ) And settings folders (favorites, etc. ). May i copy all the user folder to the new location or i must leave there some of them in c:/system/users? In xp, when i move my documents to d:, every thing was redirected there (default1 saving folder, default download folder, defautl music folder, etc. ) In w7, would happen the same? The link on the desktop will redirect me to the location or may continue pointing the old one.

No Disk Error Message

Both my wife and i are experiencing problems with "no disk" error messages on our windows 7 machines (windows 7 professional). Her error message displays on start up. Mine just pops up randomly. Here's the message she gets:

Userinit.exe - no disk
Winlogon.exe - there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddiskdr7

We can get rid of the message after clicking the "cancel" button about 11 times.

Here's the message i get:

Outlook.exe - no disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddiskdr7

So far, i can close the error message window by clicking the "continue" button. She's been getting the error for a couple of weeks now. I started getting the error yesterday. I've run system and malware scans on both machines, using malwarebytes and microsoft security essentials. Both machines seem to be clean. The messages don't seem to be causing any harm, but are annoying. Any ideas on how we can eliminate them?

Easy Transfer Error Enough Disk Space Available

I recently upgraded my xp to windows 7 and during the process created a windows easy transfer file. The file created without any trouble and i saved it to an external hard drive. When i went to reload it back, after installing windows 7, i got an error - isn't enough disk space available to transfer files and settings. My hard drive is currently in two partitions - c: (20gb) which contains my operating system and d: (200+gb). The c: drive is full and when i go to advanced in the windows easy transfer. It looks like it is trying to transfer data there. I am not sure what to do next.
