Before the crash, my computer was running relatively slow, only being able to deal with one program at a time and often not responding. Once i restarted my computer I was unable to boot up. After getting all the dust out of my computer, remounting the video card and RAM and reconnecting my harddrive, I was able to boot up. Soon after though my screen went black and I rebooted again to find that I get a disk read error when I try to boot. Any help is appreciated!


Motherboard: MSI K9N SLI V2
Video card: Radeon HD 5750 (sapphire)
Ram: Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz E.P.P. Memory (2 x 1024)
PSU: Ultra LSP550 550-Watt Power Supply
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6000+ 3.0 GHz
Harddrive: Seagate ST3250318AS Barracuda 7200.12

Kernel Data Inpage Error: Usually bad RAM or a failing hard drive>

Test RAM: http://hcidesign.com/memtest/

Test hard drive:

Seagate or Maxtor hard drives: Seatools: http://www.seagate.c...000dd04090aRCRD

Western Digital drives: Data LifeGuard (DLG): http://support.wdc.c...9&sid=3&lang=en

Hitachi & IBM drives: Hitach DFT http://www.hitachigs.../downloads/#DFT

Additionally, the Seagate SeaTools will test any brand of hard drive by generic testing, but for greater
accuracy you should use the drive manufacturer's own testing tool where it's available as above.

How would i go about using these programs? I can't boot to windows, and when I try to use my Vista CD to open up the recovery console, it just hangs on the blue screen. When I try to boot without a disk, it goes two ways:
1. I try to boot normally and I get a hanging black screen before I get to the log in screen.
2. I try to boot from the last good configuration, safe mode, or safe mode with command prompt, and it freezes at crcdisk.sys when my PC is loading the windows files.

*** So i changed my BIOS settings to fail-safe defaults, and I was able to boot windows and run those programs. The Memtest is still running with no errors, though the seagate program failed my hardrive on all types of tests except for the short general test. Looks like I might need a new hard drive. ***
