Dell b130 internal system restoration failed

\015 I tried to do an internal system restoration with my dell inspirion b130, but it failed. Whenever I try to start my computer, a message '' A disk read error occurred. Press Alt+Ctrl+Del to restart'' pops up. But, when I restart, the same screen pops up. What do I do?\015

Answers :

Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.
It may be due to incomplete restoration process resulting in invalid system disk or boot failure. disk read error since it cannot read boot sector of primary partition. the solution is to boot the laptop from a boot windows cd or a recovery cd you might have and install the os on c: drive from there.

if you had been getting disk errors prior to your failed restoration attempt it points to failing hard disk.
