PC intermittently booting into windows. Boot errors occuring.
Posted on 2011-03-08
Having intermittent boot errors with two machines built to the same specification. Most of the time you can boot to windows as normal. Recently we are having boot errors on start up at intermittent times. Errors have including the following:
1) A disk read error has occurred, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
2) Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer status: 0x00000e9 Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred
3) Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter
I have put in a brand new HDD and installed a fresh copy of windows onto one of the machines to test it. Also installed all drivers for the motherbaord. I am still having the errors intermittently. Had initially thought this had resolved it but now i have some of the above errors re-occur. My current impressions is the motherboard is at fault?
Any ideas would be great thanks.
