Error upon boot A disk error occured

Lenovo Lenovo 3000 n200 notebook

Specs: Windows XP SP3, Intel Dual Core / 1Gb
Friday (at work) I had to make a choice; either stay late, or shut down my pc, and finish my work at home. I went home, but upon boot I got "A disk error occurred;" then on next line "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart... It's a lenovo laptop, and the hard drive was replaced about five months ago (just because I needed more space), and its work just fine until Saturday?! I did a "Google" search, and two differnt sites said ""Spotmau's PowerSuite 2011," will "Boot any computer, and reinstall Windows!" What isn't said is once bought, sownloaded, installed (on home pc) "How do I make that bootable CD to use on the laptop?" The BIOS sees the drive correctly (by that I mean it sees it as the correct make & model). It's a Segate drive; any sugjestions? If you, or someone has used "PowerSuite" I'd be forever in your debet to explain "How does one make the CD" that they say can boot, and repair?

Just use the WIndows CD that came with the computer. You are going to need it any ways. You boot to recovery console and run CHKDSK to repair your drive. It may have gotten damaged when moving the computer around without waiting for it to fully shutdown.

To make a bootable CD just for your information, you need to have an ISO file and an ISO burner like...

I keep XP, Vista, Fedora, or what ever ISOs for just such a reason. If you use an XP ISO make sure it is a VLK or it may not work with your key. Again it is best to use the disk that came with your computer. If you don't have one, call the tech support team for your computer and they can send you one.
