i'm repairing a pc which got this moring at restart the black screen with the message : disk read error press ctrl alt delete to restart.
OS = XP SP3
however, the disk tests fine with a disk diag (long test); i can log on to it with ERD Commander, and do a system restore. - same problem !
So it looks to me the MBR is bad.
i even did a fixmbr from the XP CD, and a bootcfg /rebuild - same problem !
any help on this? can this be a rootkit?
right now - i'm doing a scan from the Kaspersky rescue cd
