Hard drive failure can happen like this: You turn on your computer and you receive” A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+ Alt+ Del to restart “.
You try to restart it and you merely get the same error. This may indicate your hard drive has abruptly failed.
The message can vary but the result is the same, your computer will not boot. The main drive is the heart of your computer, it holds every program and file in your computer.
Hard drive failure is more common with older HDD ( the older type spin drive ) as they tend to have spinning platters and a read head similar to how a record player has a record with its arm and a needle.
These moving parts are very delicate and when something goes wrong, your data can be lost in an instant. SSD are newer more advanced hard drives with faster performance and less data loss however they inevitably all deteriorate over time.
This is why all our custom-built gaming computers come with an SSD drive as standard, this enables us to guarantee far superior performance along with futureproofing our customer’s computers as much as possible along with withstanding our long three-year warranty.
Tips to avoid ultimate failure:
- Do not use system restore disks.
- Reinstalling Windows does NOT fix this.
- Do not try to fix it yourself because you have a higher hazard of losing your precious photos, documents, and music.
If your computer is having any of these symptoms, take it to a computer professional and have them straighten it out. A proper diagnosis is required. The cause may be other than a hard drive failure.
If your drive has failed I can replace it and have your computer running again. Repairing computers is my speciality.
