Primary disk failed.

I get  message: 'Primary disk failed'after restarting only
(by Ctrl+Alt+Del).It's happen often,but not everytime.
I have Pentium2 MMX-233 MHz,RAM-32,WINDOWS98b.
Setting off and on help always.
Excuse me for my  english.
Thanks,
Vlad

Could you please give me some more info, such as:

Hard Drive type,size, etc.
Are you using FAT32?
Do you have more than one hard drive installed?

The answer is the spin up time of your HD. Some HD take a long time spinning up. If your Bios checks your HD before it is ready you get this error. Maybe you can change some BIOS settings for example Fast Boot to false, to increase the time your BIOS waits.
