Unhappy Please help!!!

When I boot my computer it says "A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart."

When I press Ctrl, Alt, and Del it does it again. This is all it does.

It reads a Norton Ghost disk, but it reports an error there too.

Can anyone help?

Since it seems to be affecting two drives, check you connections. That's all my limited expertise can come up with

Thumbs up I fixed it. Thanks for the tip.

So far, I've found that my main hard drive malfunctioned. I'm not sure whether or not a virus caused this, but I installed another hard drive and borrowed a Ghost boot disk from my brother-in-law (mine didn't work for some reason). From there I was able to use the Ghost image I saved to CD and so far I'm back to normal. I'm in the process of scanning my drives for viruses.

Thanks anyways.
