Hi I hope all you wonderful people out there can help me
I have just built my computer and it has two SATA drives fitted. I installed an O/S and the system has been running fine for the last two days.
However this morning I turned it on and received the following message "a disk read error has occurred"
I stuck in my xp disk and clicked on repair, which fixed the unknown problem after about 10 minutes.
However later in the evening I had the same message again, and stuck the XP cd in again (and tried to repair it), however this time it did not work.
The computer is allowing me to re-install XP but I don’t want to do that as I have too much info saved.
The computer runs through the bios and memory checks which are fine, but when it goes to boot up XP, that’s when the problem occurs.
I looked at the disk using the XP disk and for some reason the computer shows unknown under the disk format type (should be FAT16, 32 or NTFS).
My second hard drive is showing as NTFS
The computer will not allow me to boot in to safe mode either,
Can any one help me please?
