need help. disk read error (Solved)

Ok. I was just sitting around playing my ps3 with my laptop behind me running. Then I heard it beep real loudly and it seemed to be restarting. Then it went to a black screen and it said " a disk read error occurred. Press ctrl plus alt plus del. I used to have Vista on this computer so I put in my update disk for Windows 7. And tryed to use the repair tools it offers. But nothing is working. I also used the command prompt. I used bootrec.exe /fixmbr and bootrec.exe /fixboot. It said both were successful. But it still didn't do anything. I also ran the windows memory diagnostics tool. But it foumd no problems. Please. Can anyone help me

It's possible it is to do with the HDD configuration as Vista and 7 are funny about how these are setup but as Coolness said you will need to return the disk info for us to be able to help.

The drive is shown as Raw. That means windows doesn't think it contains a filesystem . The repairs you tried will do nothing to a Raw drive.

Try booting The PW cd ( make sure NUM LOCK is on when it asks about screen resolution - then press1 , then press enter).

If it sees the drive, click Disk 1 at the top of the PW screen , then Partition Recovery in the left pane. Do a Quick scan . If it finds the partition (s), tick ALL the partitions you want back, OK, Apply.

Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to boot computer directly ...
