While the drive is connected by another method, it’s recommended to run a scan with something like HD Tune to test for any bad sectors.
Whether HD Tune finds any issues or not, you should also run a “chkdsk drivename: /r” from a command prompt while you’re able to or use a portable tool to do it for you.
If you get the disk read error after installing a new drive, make sure the hard drive is on the master connector (end of the cable) and if you can, set the hard drive jumper to master instead of cable select.
Also try without a secondary (slave) device attached to the same cable if there is one.4.
What makes this even worse is there are so many different ways to attempt to fix this error, it could take days to get through them all.
And to make matters worse, a disk read error might not actually mean there’s a problem with the hard drive itself!
If you can boot it up past the error or can access all your files without a problem, then the issue will likely be related to other hardware in your machine.
You can usually get to the BIOS by pressing Del or F2 etc during boot.As this is a simple and non destructive test meaning you’re not touching the hard drive risking further damage, it is recommended you try this first.It may sound odd but in fact memory problems can be responsible for a vast array of different errors on a system where testing your RAM might be the last thing you think of.2.The two most popular Windows mail clients are most likely Windows Live Mail from the free Windows Essentials 2012 and Microsoft’s Outlook from their Office suite, Outlook is especially popular where business use is concerned.If you allow HTML emails in your client, you will of course receive emails with clickable hyperlinks inside which can be clicked on, and the link is automatically opened in your default web browser.
