disk read error

By cebb40 ·
I have had my computer shut off for about 3 months and I turned it on today and i got the message "A disk read error occurred, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart" I did that and I keep getting back to the same thing when it restarts. I can not do anything other than get to that page. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix that? I am very computer illiterate so make it easy on me.

Hard drive failing

by mjd420nova In reply to disk read error

I've seen this error before on the same circumstances, and the drive had failed. I was able to get the drive running long enough to get the data off before complete failure. Leave the unit on, let the drive get nice and warm and then try to reboot, sometimes the extra heat will free things up enough to start okay and recover the data.

I left it on for about 3 hours and then rebooted and it was still taking me to that same message. Do I need to leave it on longer or try something else to fix it?
