hey, my mom got a blue screen of death today and asked if i could help fix it. it turns out she was getting a kernel_data_inpage_error, so i decided to try and fix it, then i logged in safe mode and got a new BSOD and then tried again and got a unmountable boot volume. so im trying to use Recovery Console and it wants a administer password which of course she forgot. i tried "offline nt password & registry editor" but got error code 13.. so now i cant get ride of the adminster password nor can i get ride of the unmountable boot volume error

this is what im following for the boot volume error:
http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/2605/fixing...t_volume_error/

so any help getting ride of the password, or fixing the boot volume error would be most excellent!

and i cant reformat it just yet because she needs to backup her tests and quizzes she has made - shes a teacher

its a old dell peice of crap laptop with Windows XP Home SP3

You can attempt to fix the unmountable boot volume error...by running chkdsk /r...with the drive from your mother's system attached to another system as an additional, non-boot drive.

Wait...that's wrong :thumbsup:. It's right but it's the wrong answer for you.

The administrator password asked for in the Recovery Console...probably doesn't exist. I don't know of any home user who has ever set one, so try just hitting Enter when you get to that.

How to use CHKDSK in the XP Recovery Console - http://pirules3.14.googlepages.com/recovery_console_chkdsk

If it moves to the command prompt, you win.

If not, go back to my first sentence.

quick update: trying to normally boot sends me to a black screen, then txt saying "A disk read error occurred Press CTR alt del to restart"

and i tried just pressing enter and nothing happens for the password problem.. it askes 3 times and reboots..

i can no longer boot to safe mode btw! and i ran a diagnostic tool and i failed the DST short test!!



edit: im using ophcrack right now to try and get the password using the bootable version of the file... hopefully it works. and i got the option to go into safemode - it seems to come and go now? but i press enter to start it and it just freezes

well the hard drive flat lined last night - well the boot partition that is - my dad was able to get most of the hard drive information off it while he could.

FIXED: installed new hard drive

I was also getting KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR and a new hard drive got the same BSOD errors.  This other thread suggested "defective storage controller hardware" as a possible cause so I connected the SATA data cable to a different SATA connector on the old motherboard and the old system works perfectly again.  An easy and free thing to try.  Hope this helps someone.
