Today’s blog post was created to help you if you get an error that won’t start due to a hard drive error message.
This message indicates a problem with the hard drive when the operating system tries to read data from the hard drive. Simply put, a hard disk failure can be caused by various reasons such as: B. Due to incorrect boot order, BIOS problem, IDE cable failure, configuration Incorrect MBR, bad hard disk, etc.
If you have a problem using your computer and receive an error message during a crash, hopefully this message indicates the cause and can be resolved accordingly. However, this is not always the case, and the message can be quite general, and repairs are not an easy affair with a clear place to start troubleshooting.
Unfortunately, there are many errors on your system that seem simple but lead to the same problem. The error message is not specific enough to make a clear decision on what to do next.
Some time ago I had a problem with my computer, and after strange things happened, for example, the CD-R disc did not burn and the computer was very slow to respond, I decided to shut down and leave Allow for a while. When I ran it the next day, I got an error:
An error occurred while reading the hard disk. Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart.
The BIOS recognized the hard drive without any problems. After extensive research on the internet and forums, no one had an exact solutionthis problem and there seems to be no better solution than the rest.

What’s worse is that there are so many different ways to fix this error that it can take days to fix them. And to make matters worse, a hard drive read failure might not mean the problem is with the hard drive itself! Also, there seems to be as much software as there are hardware reasons.
Here are some of the possible solutions we used to fix the hard disk read error. Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart the problem.
1. Check your memory
This is not often mentioned on the internet as a solution to the disk read error problem, but believe it or not, it was my problem. I used a tool called Memtest86 and ran some tests on my RAM and it found problems. After experimenting with different sticks and RAM slots, I finally discovered that my RAM slot 2 was damaged because the sticks in the other slots were working fine.
Since this is a simple non-destructive test that does not involve touching the hard drive and risking further damage, it is recommended that you try it first. It may sound strange, but in fact, memory problems can be the cause of various errors on the system, where testing your RAM may be the last thing you think about.
2. Try the player on another computer
As we said, people have reported on the internet that they associate the problem with faulty video cards, modems, motherboards, and even power supplies, even though this problem looks like a problem. simple hard drive problem. The easiest way to fix this is to remove the hard drive and connect it to another computer, or connect it to the same computer via an external USB port. If you run it after an error, or can easily access all your files, then the problem is most likely related to other hardware on your computer.
Unfortunately, when this happens, you can try and Find the faulty hardware by removing or replacing what you can, although the next possible fix is pretty straightforward.
While the drive is connected in another way, it is recommended to run a scan with HD Tune to check for bad sectors. Regardless of whether HD Tune has problems, you should also run “chkdsk driver name: / r” on the command line while you have the option, or use a portable tool to do it for you.
It is also recommended to back up files or the entire disk while the disk is available.
3. Check / replace cable
While I have not seen SATA cables fail (but obviously they can), faulty IDE cables can sometimes cause problems such as read or write errors on hard drives and writers. optics. If you have spare cables, you can either replace them or disconnect the current cables, inspect them for damage, and then reconnect them if you’re happy with that. Also try using other SATA or IDE ports if possible, sohow the port may be damaged.
If, after installing a new drive, an error occurs while reading the hard drive, make sure the hard drive is connected to the primary connector (end of the cable). If possible, set the hard drive jumper to “Master” instead of “Cable Select”. Also try without a secondary (slave) device connected to the same cable if you have one.
4. Reset / Update BIOS
In rare cases, resetting the BIOS to default settings may resolve the issue. You can usually enter BIOS by pressing Delete or F2 etc. during the boot process. It should be possible to reset the settings to their default values. Find an option similar to the one shown in the image below. Otherwise, you can remove the BIOS battery for a few minutes to reset it. If you cannot access CMOS because it is password protected, you can easily reset it from Windows using CMOS De-Animator.
It is also reported that updating the BIOS to the newer version works, especially on laptops.

Why Is There A Hard Disk Read Error?
The actual cause of this error varies from computer to computer, from hardware problems to software problems. This section lists the most common causes of hard drive read errors.
Computer hard drive is failing
In most cases, a failure to read from a hard drive indicates damage. If the boot sector on the hard disk is damaged or there are bad sectors in the system partition, the system boots with errors.
No bootable hard drive
Sometimes a hard drive read error before booting occurs because the computer is reading the wrong boot hard drive. If the bootable hard drive is missing or the bootable hard drive is not configured correctly, the system will not boot normally.
Damaged hard drive cable
The IDE cable is a large piece in your computer case and is responsible for the rigid connection about disk and motherboard. Sometimes, incorrect or loose IDE cables can cause hard disk read or write errors.
BIOS setup issue
In rare cases, a hard disk read error is caused by incorrect BIOS settings. If any BIOS updates are available, they should be updated carefully.
Another common cause is incorrect or invalid setup of the Master Boot Recorder. Moreover, corrupted MBR configuration can be caused by virus attack, power outage, bad sectors, etc. In addition, incorrectly configured partition table can cause this problem.
Sudden power failure
Incorrect system shutdown can damage your computer’s files and hard drives. This typically occurs when an accidental power outage occurs or the system needs to shut down to terminate an unresponsive program. After a computer crash, Windows checks the file system and hard drive at startup to check and fix problem files.
Sample Operating system theme
An incomplete or incorrect installation of Windows also leads to this problem; For example, if DLL files are missing on the system or some system registry files are damaged.
Try These Fixes:
# 1 – Disconnect USB or DVD Drive
# 2 – Turn off your computer and let it cool down for a few hours.
# 3 – Reset or update BIOS
# 4. Check hard drive cables
# 5 – check RAM
# 6 – Fix MBR and Fix Startup
Fix 1. Disconnect USB Or DVD Drive
If you connected removable flash drives such as USB or DVD, unplug it and try restarting Windows 10. Your system may be trying to boot from one of the connected devices to change the boot priority.
After removing all these devices Check whether the error persists.
If you see the error again, the problem might be with your hard drive or settings. You can move on to the next fix to solve the trial To him.
Fix 2. Shut Down Your Computer And Let It Cool Down For A Few Hours.
As soon as a hard drive read error occurs in Windows 10, you will need to shut down your computer and let it cool down for several hours (for example, 5-8 hours) to take a break. When everything has cooled down, turn on your computer and check if you can access Windows 10 normally.
