Hi all,

My computer (windows 7 32bit) is having problems starting

It'll say 'g31m-es2l. Detecting IDE (actually SATA but I dunno why it says that) Drives' then it proceeds to say 'boot from CD-ROM' by now then it would say starting windows but what it does instead is say 'disk read error. Press cntrl+alt+del to restart. It'll do it over and over again in an infinite loop. Any suggestions on what the problem is? Also, safe mode cannot be accessed. The only thing I had altered was downloading plague inc evolved onto my spare HDD.

Cheers,
Hman out😎

Actually don't worry I turned it off from the plug for 10 mins and it worked. Don't ask me how but it worked

It seems like the computer was trying to boot off of a disk without an operating system. The boot priority is usually the internal CD drive first, then internal hard drives, the usb/external hard drives, then network. You can verify what the order is by going into BIOS and changing the setting. I would do that first.

Disk-read-error messages may have varying causes...the first thing that I suggest is to disconnect the hard drive and reattach the connections.
