I have an older Toshiba Satelite A65 S1062 (purchased in 2004)that I was using the restore disk on when it lost power. Now when I try to start it, it goes directly to a "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" and returns to that message when I restart. Isn't there a way I can get a C prompt or something so I can try the restore disk again? It was running XP, I think it was the home version.



PS: There wasn't anything wrong with the laptop before I did this, at least not that I know of, other than it hadn't been used for over 6 months. I wanted to restore it so I could give it away.
