I use vista Ultimate.I have two OS on two drives.Both visa ultimate.Just 1 day back,i was playing games late night when suddenly the computer hung.I did ctrl+alt+del but a blank screen came up.It showd mssage about some logn screen problem.I then pushed the restart button.It started and before iving the list where the OS are preset,it says"Disk read error occured,press ctrl+alt+del to restart".I switched off the UPS and again restarted it,now with no problems.again yesterday,when i started the computer,i faced the same problem and did the same thing,it again started after showing the disk read error problem.
Can you tell me what ar possible causes of such a problem?Is it temporary or permanent?Any problem with vista or my hardware components?Is my hard drive getting corrupt,since i changed my hard drive after one failure? i read in the net that it the mobo and the hard drive are not in terms.IS it true?
Now,how can i remove this problem permanently?How do i solve it without having to reformat since i have formatted many a times and completely want o avoid it?DO i have to change my motherboard or hard drve?
Please help me fast as i have faced this problem before.Answer all my questions. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Run Check Disk and see if that solves the problem.
Either:
1) Right click the disk in 'Computer', --> properties --> tools tab --> 'Check for errors'.
2) Open command prompt and type CHKDSK C: /F (for drive C)

This will require a restart as it is your system drive.

More drastic option, backup you data, format drive and reinstall vista. (why do you have two installations??). This is more likely to work if the above doesn't.

It may have occured because you hard reset your computer. This can cause file system instability.

It is also a strong sign that your hard drive may be failing. If you haven't already, make sure you have a backup of all your data. Which leaves another option: replace HDD.

Have you faced this problem before with the same hard drive (different installation), if so I would definitely replace you hard drive.

Hope this helps.
