Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I woke up this morning took a shower and yada yada yada. Turned on my monitor, browsed for a few minutes and noticed that everything was running incredibly slow. So I figured, "Oh, I'll just reboot and everything should run fine." I was wrong. As it's booting, I get a "Disk Read Error. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to Restart." So I changed the primary boot from my DVD drive to my HDD to see if that would change anything. Nope. Got nothing. I'm really not sure where to go from here. I've never come across anything like this before. I did a little searching and turned up a multitude of answers, and I'm really not sure what to do. If I need to reformat, is there any way for me to recover all of the data I'm losing?
H/A, I really need you guys to pull through for me. I've posted a couple topics here before and gotten lukewarm response. This time I'm desperate. A lot of the data on that drive is stuff like pictures, school documents, etc. that I haven't had the chance to back up because of a shot DVD drive and no funds to buy an external HDD.
tl;dr - I'm getting a "Disk Read Error", don't know what to do, really need help.
