help!!!
no matter what way i try to start my computer it goes back to this dark blue screen that reads:

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

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

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

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

If the problem continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use 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: 0x000000ED (0x833890E8, 0xc0000006, 0x00000000, 0x000000000)

This is not a malware problem. More than likely an issue with the hard drive or memory
Moved to the proper forum

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

Hi :thumbsup:.

The typical cure for the Unmountable, etc. errors...is to run chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console of the XP CD.

The XP CD is not the same as a recovery/restore CD.

You can download the Recovery Console and burn it to CD, using an .iso-burning program. You would then be able to run the chkdsk /r command in an attempt to overcome this situation.
