When it powers on it goes directly to a black screen that says:
A DISK READ ERROR HAS OCCURED
PRESS CTRL+ALT+DELETE TO RESTART
This just does the same thing. I have tried to run a system restore to factory settings, it gets about half way through then a blue screen comes up with an error message that says windows has failed and must be shut down to prevent damage to the computer or something to that effect.
I have tried to get into BIOS to access safe mode and see if that works, but It asks for a SETUP PASSWORD which I never set and I have no idea what it is.
The computer did not come with a copy of windows to reinstall and it literally wont do anything at all. It goes from the windows screen to the black screen almost immediately.
I am totally out of knowledge for this problem. Is there anything that can be done or should I just pitch it?
