Hello.

This morning I attempted to start my computer and got the BSOD. Of course, I got this before and I thought it was viruses again. Well, it wasn't. I cannot go into any form of safe mode and I have no idea what to do now.

It starts off with:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage from your computer.

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

....
....
....

Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x000000ED (0x862EB030, 0xC000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


Any ideas?

Do you have an XP CD? Some good reading about the problem here:

This does not sound good. If you continue to receive this error I suspect your hard drive is about to go south. I would definitely backup any files and programs you've downloaded and make sure you've got disks for all your other software. I would definitely go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer and download their diagnostic utility. I had the exact same thing happen to a laptop I only had for a little over a year. The hard drive was bad. That being said, you can always try a repair installation if you have a disk that will allow it.

To ease your mind you still might want to run a hard drive diagnostics test like Jazzgirl mentioned

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html lists a ton of great freeware

The first post also has a section: "Hard Drive & System Utilites" there you will find the software you need to diagnose your drive

UltimateBootCD also contains several hdd tools, and is really handy.
