Having problems with your ASUS Eee PC 900 Notebook ?

Error Msg: A disk read error occured.

\015 Hi,I'm in HK now. Lat year I purchased an Asus EeePC 900 that originally ran on Linux but I told them to install WinXP on it first which they did. After a few use, it all suddenly went black w/ only an error message 'A disk read error occured. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart'. I did what the msg said several times to no avail. I ran the recovery disc and it went back to Linux. However, I liked working with Windows so I brought it back to the shop and they fixed it but it took them more than a month to do so. Just a few days ago, the same problem occured with the same error message. It's totally unusable. I want to bring it back again to the shop but I'm afraid it'll take more than a month again before they fix it. Please can you help me? Is there anything I can do?\015

Answers :

Hi there.
It took them a month to install XP!!!!!!!
It should have been done within 24 hours.
Have you any warranty on the laptop at all? if you have you must take advantage of that and send it in for repair as it sounds to me like the solid state hard drive may be corrupt.
WEll i don't know how they fixed it before but if you get a disc read error then it's a bad hard drive. They may have gotten it to read again but it's still a bad hard drive and needs to be replaced and a new one put in. Don't know if they charged you for a bad hard drive before but it doesn't sound like they replaced it. Get a new drive and re-install your operating system and it should be fine.
