HELP! - Dell Mini 910 - Disk Read Error - Error Code 0F00:0244

This question is not answered

Hi,  when I boot my computer I cannot get past an error report saying "A Disk Read Error Occured Press Ctrl Alt Del to Continue"  I've done a Diagnostics and it came up with Error Code OFOO:0244  MSG: Disk_0-Block5799960: Can't Read, Replace Disk or Remove Write Protection.

Any ideas on what this means or how it can be repaired please?? 

Many thanks in advance!
