Default A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

I just restarted my PC , and I got this error.
I saw the solution was to run a repair from the Windows XP CD, which i am doing.

I'm in the repair screen and i entered the command : chkdsk /p /r
It's at 51% and I've been told It can take like 3 hours to complete, lets hope that will solve the problem.

Thanks,
Preacher

Your keyboard and mouse should load up from bios so try to reset your bios to default.

Is it a USB keyboard? Sometimes they don't get picked up quickly enough. You may have to download something like killdisk and format the drive first so you don't have to hit anything to get it to boot from CD. Unfortunately if it still doesn't pick up your keyboard you may have some trouble.
