Windows 7: A disk read error occured when powering on laptop

26 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
A disk read error occured when powering on laptop

Toshiba logo comes up finely, and then I have option to press F2 or F12.

And then and the top right it says A disk read error occured Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.
When I do that same thing all over the again.

This is a Toshiba P750 laptop, about 5-10 months old.

This is my brothers laptop that has this issue how ever I have the same laptop only different slitely with ram and graphics card.

So what I did I took out the hard drive with the issue from my brothers laptop and put in my own working one it all worked fine, so I am thinking he either did something to the computer eg virus or something bad or something wrong with the hard drive.

Please help... I also tried using the recovery I get the same message. It shows the hard drive in BIOS as well.
