Hello! My Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro notebook suddenly restarted and while booting, I only get this message:
"A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart"

Upon pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del, I get stuck at the same message. I've tried using my MS Vista DVD to check/repair the disk, but nothing happens after I get the green progress bar. I'm just stuck with a blank screen.

How do I resolve the problem?

I'm stuck with a blank screen when I use the installation DVD. By the way, the HD is still being detected by the BIOS.

You are right, time to get a new HDD. However, is there any chance of getting some data back from the current HDD if I use an enclosure to connect it via USB?

Try it in a different sata port and different computer. Once upon a time I had the mother board sata controller fail with similar symptoms
