Hello, when i boot up my computer it checks all hardware then says "disk read error occured, press cntrl-alt-delete to restart", which i've tried often. I've had this sata hardrive running for a couple of days with no problems, then i turned it on and all of a sudden there's this error. In setup, it recognizes hard drive(as it did before). I've tried re-hooking up cables again and again but no luck. Any help?:sad:

hmm, haven't you made any operations with HD's file system(partitioning, changing FS)? i think nothing can help in such sittuation, the only way is to reformat the drive. if you have some needful staff, there is an oppotunity to restore it:
