This is my first time posting...tried to find the exact problem in the logs, but could not. My desk top HP seemed to be working fine, but one day I turned it on and it would only go to a screen that gave me two choices. (normal or safe mode) I tried both, but the system would act like it was loading and then return to the same page. HP phone help was not helpful and I got nowhere. I had them send me recovery disks and they did not work. Now, when I turn on the computer, I get a screen that says
Disk I/O error
Press a key to restart
Reboot and Select proper boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key
I tried putting in the XP Operating System CD and booting from that, but I get the same message over and over again. This may be some simple fix, but I'm not computer smart.
Can anyone help me with this? Thank you.
