Every time i start up my laptop it flashes the BSOD screen but it goes by too fast so I can't see the error or stop. I tried to use the recovery console but it leads to another BSOD screen that says unmountable boot volume and stop 0x00000ed.

Hi

 

In most cases, this specific error code is an indication of a failing hard drive. 

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185

 

Please follow the below instructions.

 

:step1: Backup all the data to an external medium.

 

You can use a live Linux CD like Puppy to boot the laptop and copy all the data (if the HDD is accessible ).

 

1. Download Puppy disc image from the below link.

 

   http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-5.6/slacko-5.6-PAE.iso

 

2. Burn the image to a blank disc using Imgburn or any other ISO burning app.

 

    http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe

 

    

 

3. Boot from the CD and try to copy data to a USB drive. All your partitions will be mounted and given names sda1 , sda2 etc instead of letters C and D.

:step2: Run a full surface scan on the hard drive.

 

1. Download Seagate Seatool from the below link.

 

    http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/item/seatools-dos-master/

 

 2. Write the image to a disc and boot from it. Choose Long test from the menu and report whether it detects errors during the scan.

The CD reader on my laptop is broken so I'm using an external one but BIOS doesn't have an option to boot from USB.

Hi

 

You can unplug the hard drive from the laptop and connect to another machine for data backup and testing. If it is a SATA HDD, can be connected directly to a desktop machine. In case of an IDE drive, you need a USB adapter.

Hi

 

Disassembling the laptop is necessary to take the hard drive out. If you are a tech savvy person, you can do it yourself. Please read the below guide carefully.

Also watch this video tutorial.

 

 

If the HDD is an IDE one, you need to buy a USB converter to attach it to a desktop or laptop. SATA drives can be connected directly to a desktop machine.
