Here's my story.

I built a computer with parts and tried to install Vista on it. It would not work as I got the 0x080300001 Error where I could not install Vista to my Hard Drive. I tried restarting my computer a couple times, but after 3 times, my computer would not read the Vista disk again. I formatted my hard drive from there too many times, but nothing worked.

From there, I tried Windows XP. It installed the files needed or prepared them, then restarted the computer. Then I got the "A disk read error has occured..."

Now I keep on getting the "A disk read error has occured..." no matter if I have a CD/DVD in my DVD Drive.

I got answers elsewhere that it was a hard drive problem, but I'm skeptical as it seemed to work before. Could it be an operating system problem or is it for sure a hard drive problem?

<<I built a computer with parts...>>

The chances for incompatibility or nonfunctional parts...seems quite high.

What does the BIOS reflect?

Are you using a new CMOS battery?
