... that is the error message I get from my PC when I try and boot up. It shows on the screen after the memory check.

I know this is very vague, but what should I do? Maybe you could list some things to check, that'd be great.

Thanks,

Chris

EDIT: I tried to completely format with Killdisk, but it tells me there is an issue with the A: drive. (Bad CRC, which I'm presuming to stand for Cyclic Redundancy Check.)

Hmm..... disk read error:uhm: try taking out a disk if you have one in there, if not look in your m,anual if you happen to have it or call up pc world or whoever you brought the pc off, or even better go to a pc shop, they may be able to tell you whats up OR if you want, take the back/side/whatever off of your pc and go around everything with some cotton buds or a soft cloth natty

... I would have presumed it was HD related, as there's no disks in.
