I have a Acer Aspire one netbook model ZG5 with an Atom N214 chip. The netbook would not boot up. It was in a boot cycle with a count down timer which gave me options for safe mode which didn't work it just continued to cycle. I ran the recovery option and it tried to boot up but came up with an error "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". I pressed those keys and it is in the same cycle. Help Please

Sorry to say, but based on the symptoms you describe, it sounds like the HDD has failed. So if the unit is under warranty still, time to give Acer a call and see about getting it fixed.
