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

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

If this is the firs time you've seen this Stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure an new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installe hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to sue Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: OXOOOOOOED (OX86F2B868, 0XC0000185, 0X00000000, 0X000000)

Diagnostic lights (Dell) A(green) B(green) C(green) D(green)

If a solution can be found to this problem that won't require reformatting the HDD that would be great! I haven't used this HDD in years and I'm very curious as to what is on it.

Perhaps this article on the Microsoft database will help you:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=297185&sd=RMVP

It is most probably due to the cause of the file system damage. So, use the chkdsk /r command to repair the volume.

Here's how:

Start your computer by using the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive.
2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this. (Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.)
5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

If this procedure does not work, repeat it and use the fixboot command in step 5 instead of the chkdsk /r command.

Here's a link to a description of the error message: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0xed

I'd suggest downloading a free, bootable diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive (to check the physical structure of the disk).

These problems usually come in 3 flavors:
- bad hard drive
- bad file system
- bad boot sector

The steps above will help to rule these out.

Might not have anything to do with it, but if it's been out of commission for a few years i'd replace the motherboard battery

Actually I did get an error "Alert! System Battery Low" But I figured it still had some juice left.

If you got that system battery low warning, regardless of if that fixes your problem or not, you need to replace the battery.

I've tried three different batteries(none new but I wasn't receiving that message on the computers I stole them from) and I get the same message except now it tells me the clock is wrong.

A new battery costs less than $5 and is available at any store selling photo/watch batteries. Model: CR 2032.

Did you reset the time and date in the BIOS?
