You have a smooth operative computer that you are happy working with, suddenly one day you find out a strange error saying “A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart” and when you restart same message appears. It doesn’t let you open your operating system XP or Windows 7/8 whichever it is. You can’t see your favorite boot up screen of Windows logo showing up and wondering what went wrong and equally scared if you have done something wrong last time or not. Actually this is no strange error but an ordinary common problem. The problem is with your hard disk. There is nothing to worry or be panicked about. The error message indicates that your hard disk might have some problems and system can not read your hard disk. This doesn’t necessarily mean that your hard disk has crashed. This problem is generally caused by loose connection or cables. So don’t get worried yet that your files have been washed out. • If your hard disk is old and cable’s are IDE, this problem is nothing new to you. A quick and easy solution is available to fix this issue by yourself without any expert help. To do so follow the steps • Start your computer and enter your BIOS by pressing F1, F2 or DEL whatever it is for your motherboard. When you turn on your PC, it will always appear on your screen which button you should press to enter BIOS. • In BIOS check if your hard disk has been connected or not. BIOS will show your hard disk brand name and which cable it is connected to. • Normally you won’t find the hard disk connected that is why it is showing disk errors. • If even you can see your hard disk is connected but disk error message appearing, you need to turn off your computer and unscrew and remove the side panel. • Check if the cable attached to hard disk is connected properly. Remove the cable’s whether it is SATA or IDE, then reattach them. • You can also remove the RAM and reattach if you want. Now turn on your PC and your system will recognize your hard disk and load your operating system.
