Q: help blue screened! boot volume

yo i already did a search on "unmountable boot volume"
i have win xp pro dell dimension 8200
my question is can i use a windows xp home cd to repair my files? will it mess up my windows xp pro?

Preferred Solution: help blue screened! boot volume

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: help blue screened! boot volume

No it will not mess up your Pro version . . the repair will not run.

Unmountable boot volume will usually indicate a hard drive failure . . Does BIOS redognize the drive?

Window XP Professional: when starting, interupted by blue screen with error message Fat 32 D:volume (something) 1DOB-3241 verifying files and service and then system checks out OK and starts. Since loading Windows Live and Live security have had very slow response until all of it is loaded (sometimes up to 45 minutes before I can get on Internet Explorer).
I think my D drive is too full--cannot complete defrag since there is only 9% free space on disk. C drive is nearly empty. I think I have to move some of these files to C but I don't know how. Does anyone know if these problems are connected to error message at start-up or are they separate issues? Had broadband service check over weekend and they said its not their problem. I'm not too techy but fast learner if someone has patience to help....Thanks.

A:Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

To move the files right click on them and select "copy", then make a folder on your C drive and in that folder right click "paste"

Once the files have been moved, you can go back to the D drive and delete them. Don't delete all of the files on D, just the ones you put there.

You should not store any of your files on the D drive, this is most likely a restore partition and should not be used by you.

Hi all, my son's Dell Optiplex all-in-one blue screened once. It then gave options and my son selected reboot. It would then not boot up at all (power is present as screen will come on in HDMI mode) . Bizarrely, by experimenting we realised that it will boot up ONLY if you go through this process every time:
 - remove both RAM
 - power up (it gives the beep to say memory not found)
 - power off and return one of the memory and power on
 - it briefly powers on and then powers off (we worked out that it does this as recognises it has a change in memory)
 - power off and add the other memory
 - again, briefly powers on but turns off. Power on again and voila all OK and boots Windows
However, if you then power down, it will not power back up unless you go through the above again.
Does anyone have any ideas as I am stumped with this and I need to get it working again for my son's school work. Thank you in advance.

I was just using my PC when it disconnected from the internet. Other devices were still connected so I figured the issue must be with my PC, closed my programs and then tried to restart my PC.

This is when it blue screened with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. Once the blue screen reached 100% it hung for a good five minutes before I decided to try a hard reset and now it's stuck on the loading wheel and won't boot up. I'm scared to try another restart but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Any help is much appreciated

I'm new to this but I figured I'd give this a try. This is a repost of my earlier post I did last week. no replies .

I have an Acer Aspire 5110 laptop and recently I've been getting the bluescreen when starting the laptop. Sometimes it pops up after I login, sometimes on the password screen. The bluescreen usually has HSFHWAZL.SYS (i think). After this, windows usually does a disk check. Sometimes it finds nothing, other times it truncates like 15-20 files.

Currently I'm running WindowsXP Media Center Edition.

I downloaded HijackThis and here's the log file.

If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thanks!

What can the problem be? Please HELP!

A:Blue Screened

Hi, some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
Let us have some Pc specifications.
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]

Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

Use the 'Manage attachments' in the 'Go Advanced' reply window below to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Please help! I am new to this forum. I tried to follow a tread on this but it got so confussing. Does someone have a step by step reply? Issue is Blue screen "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer". Its on my teen son's PC (need I say more). System has been down for months got tierd of working on it till now. The begining:
1) System starts and said it had two spywares running at same time. After 4 mins the system would freeze, not giveing much time to do anything
2) I started in safe mode and removed my Nortons since I could not this "other" spyware. After a reboot windows said it removed a few malice files. Forgot the the files for this "other" spyware" but it had a tool bar on IE and ended with (4.1?)
3) System worked fine. However as I tried to install a new antivirus I found that neither of my CD/ DVD drives would work (device manger, would not let me update driver). I even moved the drives to the other IDE controller but got the same thing. After two days I found someone who gave me step by step insrtuctions to remove two reg files. Got the drives to work.
4) Now I have this blue screen message. I have removed one by one each hardware item and I still get the problem.

Please help me! John

Ok this is how it started...first I will list sys specs so that you know what it is I am running...

1536 meg ddr 2700 ram
Geforce fx 5200 256 meg video card
Intel motherboard Model: D865gbf
Windows XP Pro
Browser: Mozilla Firefox ( i do not use IE )

Keep in mind I have been running a smooth system for over a year now. I frequently run Ad-aware PE, Spybot S&D, Hijackthis , Nortan system works 2004, Avast Virus removal program, and System Mechanic. I am very contious of what and where I download from... I do currently have Kazaa and Limewire on my computer but I do not download anything but music and the last few months the only program I have even downloaded that from is Limewire.

Two nights ago I was playing an online game when all of the sudden for the first time I lost connection. I figured it was an internet issue only to log out of the game and to see my internet was still up and running. I then try to go back into the game ( everquest ) but it would not connect to a server for some reason. Again I thought it was my internet... So i rebooted the computer.
While I was rebooting I noticed that it was taking an awefully long time to reboot....pausing almost a minute or two on each load screen. It normally takes my computer less then 30 seconds to reboot.

After windows was back up and running the boggyness didnt cease... I had somewhere from 4-10 second delays on clicking open a program or the internet. So normally I reboot once more to see... Read more

About 2 months ago I bought a Hp G70-460US Laptop that I've been running Vista Home Premium on and it was working perfectly until earlier today when I started to get random blue screens of death. At first I thought it was just a random crash from running too many programs, but it started to blue screen ever more frequently. Earlier I restored it back to 2 weeks prior but I was unable to run programs efficiently and it still blue screened, so I backed-up all that was important onto an Ipod and did a complete system restore to the factory settings, which took about an hour, and at which point it blue screened at startup before even getting to the administrator log-in screen. I've now attempted to boot it into safe mode, however it no longer even recognized that windows is even installed and asks for it to be, and when booted regularly, it just shows a black screen. I'm fairly certain it may be a driver issue, however seeing as I can no longer boot the computer to get the blue screen, it's difficult to check what the problem actually is now. I've never had this problem before and I'm not much of a computer wiz, so I'm not sure what I should be doing to fix it. Does anyone have prior knowledge or possibly some insight on how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated. I haven't given much information other than the problem itself, so if some is needed, just let me know. Also I'm new to this forum, so if this thread is in the wrong place, I apologize.

A:Vista Blue Screened

Hello Werty789,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

I think that there was a little glitch that turned big (sounds weird i know).
But since you backed up all of your files thats super. I would suggest you do a clean installation of your version of vista. This way, you can have a fresh start and hopefully your BSOD will be gone. Also, make sure you allow windows to update itself after installation so it downloads and installs all the proper updates.

Let us know how it goes,

I've been getting the blue screen of death several times a week, if not several times a day, for several months now. It almost always comes when I am surfing the internet, especially--but not particularly--when I'm accessing video sites such as Hulu or MSN Video, although I don't even need to be playing something in such sites--if the window's even up, it will likely give a blue screen somewhere in the next hour. Lately, though, just running a browser can cause it to blues creen.

My blue screen says at the top something to the effect of: driver-not-less-or-equal; I've never been fast enough to catch the specific numbers, but I can try if they're needed.

I've tested this in the latest versions of: IE, FF, Opera, Flock, and Safari and all equally cause a blue screen crash.

I have an Acer E380 8 month old system with:
Vista SP1
AM2 Socket MB (I believe, and don't know the exact model)
Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.31 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (I now just installed a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and it did not remedy anything)
Realtek High Definition audio
320 GB Western Digital HD
Came with 250W PSU (I put in a 750W PSU to try some upgrades with the new graphics card, but somehow that combination gave more blue screens so I took both of them out)
I have about 6 USBs hooked up drawing various amounts of power and I use a Wacom tablet as my main mouse/input, but the problem started way before that...so don't know if that means anything.

A:I'm getting blue-screened to death

Hi dgal. . .

Welcome... to your first thread in the TSF Vista Support Forum.

I see that you have been a member since last November, but this is your first thread and post. Sorry it had to be under a BSOD watch. Let's see if we can locate the cause.

I need some items and I have a few things for you as well. There is a zip file attached to this post containing a batch file named minidump-msinfo32.bat. Please download it and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the desktop batch file icon and select Run as Administrator. The black "DOS" command screen will appear and scroll followed by the smaller Vista screen while msinfo32 runs. Give it a few minutes, then go to your documents folder where there should be a new folder named TSF_08-21-08 containing the dump files (with names similar to Mini082008-01.dmp), a text file and the msinfo32 NFO file. Zip the entire folder up and attach to your next post.

In the interim, please check WERCON - Windows Problem Reports and Solutions as it usually does contain information on the system crashes that may prove to be helpful.
START | type wercon.exe into the start search box | right-click on wercon.exe under programs above | run as admin | view Problems to Check & Problem History.

Also check the Device Manager for any red/yellow flags.
START | type dev man into the start search box | right-click on Device Manager up top under programs | run as admin

Hi, recently installed a new cpu motherboard and graphics card. Reinstalled windows, and now the machine is crashing occasionally. It crashes anywhere between instant on start up or 40 minutes into browsing. I uploaded the zip file per your BSOD posting instructions.

I've done a little researching on my own and I think it may have to do with the Realtek audio controller conflicting with my nvidia graphics card in some way. Although since the computer is blue screening I'm hoping your diagnoses might help me figure out if that is actually the problem.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sys

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 installtion, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any other windows updates you might need.
If this 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 Advance Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

For the second time in the last few months We've had a partial network outage that was traced to a blue screened machine. This time, the BSOD referenced storport.sys.  The issue being caused is that the switch gets flooded with unknown traffic and that
goes as far as the uplinked switch that gets taken down.
I can't find anything that stands out in a wireshark trace, but as soon as that machine is unplugged, everything is fixed.  What could possibly be causing this and how can it be prevented?

Once it blue screened I couldn't get it to work again. The error code it gave me was 0x000000e for both my Windows 7 install and Vista install (both were working fine before this blue screen).
I got on my laptop and downloaded the system repair and put it on a disc. I ran it on my desktop (the computer having issues) and it repaired the boot issues. However, on the Windows 7 install I can get to the login screen and log in now, but it will spend about a minute or two sitting at the 'Preparing your desktop' message before coming up with a screen with nothing but a teal background and in the bottom right it says this:

Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not genuine

It is a legitimate copy and has worked fine for a year before this happened. The background looks like this minus the taskbar and icons: http://www.guidebookgallery.org/pics...win2000pro.png

The Vista install seems to work fine now though. However, I cannot access the drive that has Windows 7 installed on it from Vista anymore. If I try opening it, it will say 'Access Denied'.
Also, the drive letter for Windows 7 changed after running the repair. It was originally drive letter G but it has been changed to F.

Hello everyone I'm new to the board and I apologize for not having the time to read through all of the beginning tutorials and scanning to see if this has already been addressed on the site. I've learned more about computers in the last eight hours then I could ever imagine. I have a Lenovo T420 running Windows 7 enterprise service pack two. My computer won't boot up in windows regular mode or safemode. I believe I deleted a registry file and that blue screened my computer. My computer has windows bit locker Drive encryption in which I am an administrator and have the key. I have until tomorrow to get my expense reports submitted for the last three weeks so that I can get reimbursed and my computer picked a doozy of a time to get a virus. Specifically the Mal/Iframe-AH that I thought was quarantined. I believe it is this virus that has: Redirected Google, mirrored other websites, taken over all Internet downloads from Firefox and Internet Explorer, told me Skitch needed an update, and I downloaded a SCARY version of Skitch, and fakes the virus protection scan when I ran it. I went into the registry and deleted a file that basically blue screened my computer. I'm at a point now where I can get to the command prompt however I believe the startup repair from bitlocker is overriding my boot up disk.

I was using my computer as usual and after I came back after eating, I saw a completely black screen. I turned my computer off and as it booted back up it blue screened, telling me there was a problem with memory management.
I turned it back off and fully depowered my motherboard, popped my ram in and out, just in case.
I turned it back on and nothing showed up on my monitor. My mouse and keyboard lit up and I got the regular system beeps. I plugged my HDMI cable into my motherboard with the same results. The cable works and the port on my monitor works as well.

I am trying to sell my Dell XPS L401X (XPS 14) that I bought in December of 2010 but I have encountered a serious problem with it. I loaded the computer from factory settings as it had blue screen and refused to start up without startup repair and dell datasafe backup or w/e that program is called. I loaded it up, installed Google Chrome, cleared my history on IE, downloaded MSE, the latest nvidia drivers and java 7 64 and deleted all those and emptied the recycle bin once done installing those. I shut down the computer to install updates and get a blue screen as soon as it passes the startup screen. Every time I attempt to launch using startup repair it just opens up another window with a black screen and the option of startup repair and normal repair, never actually going to startup repair, just continually refreshing every time I select startup repair. Please help I need a permanent fix ASAP as I don't want my buyer to experience these issues and send it back.

A:Windows 7 on Dell XPS L401X Blue Screened, Startup Repair not loading

Proceed through the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot and see if that resolves the problem.

You may also consider Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since the system is no longer under warranty anyway. Just make sure you can read the key on the sticker prior to doing those steps.

However, the computer froze up again, like it was doing previously, and I would appreciate help to know what else to do. I would like to also know what caused this problem, ie virus.

Yes recently my computer just stopped and a blue screen came up and said unmountable boot volume Stop Ox000000ED, they say to try and remove any newly installed hardware or software and to go restart computer hit F8 to select Advanced Startup options (which I don't have that option) and then select safe mode. When I do that all it does is run a list of stuff and i have no idea what it is but I cant delete anything and I cant get past that bllue screen, I did look up the code and it says that its caused by a Input/Output sub-system tried to use the boot vollume but failed, it can occur during an upgrade to Windows Xp Professional on computers that use faster ATA harddrives or have controllers with the wrong cabling.

I don't know alot about computers and I would love to know what to do to fix this so if anyone could help me that would be great.

Hello, I am hoping I can get this problem solved.

So pretty much last night my laptop (hpdv6700, windows 7) was working perfectly. The next morning when I turn it on, it goes to the Blue screen of death, and says: "Unmountable Boot Volume", it then restarts itself, and gives me two options. Repair or start windows normally. I attempt to repair but the repair screen stays black for 45 minutes. I try to F8 into safe mode but I get the blue screen before I can even get to safe mode.

I then remove the hard drive from the dead laptop and connect it to a spare working laptop. When I attempt to open, it gives me the error: "Drive not accessible. The parameter is incorrect". I then burn Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS to a CD, and try to install it on the spare laptop (lenovo G500s, windows 8) and I get: An error occurred: "Nonetype object has no attribute 'get info'

So I'm not sure what to do next. I ultimately just want to get the data off of my dead drive.

A:Unmountable Boot Volume Blue Screen

UPDATE: I ended up going over to a friends, and he had a program that was able to get all of my important data off of my "dead drive". I'm extremely relieved. Guess I'll end up scraping the hard drive now. I'll probably use the laptop for parts. It's been with me for 7 years, and I have to admit I'm a bit sad to see it go.

I am having some trouble with my computer. I re sized my primary partition with Windows XP on it the other day using Easeus Partition Manager so I could try out Ubuntu. After resizing, my computer rebooted and it went into the screen where I could choose to boot in safe mode, ..., Restore to last known configuration, and Start normally. I chose to restore to the last known configuration if I remember correctly. It booted up into Windows and after the login screen, the new device manager popped up saying new volume found and whether or not I wanted to continue but I accidently closed it. Then I went ahead and named the partition that was created and began the install, but the install failed for some reason, I think it was because of a corrupted file. Then when i rebooted, my computer went into the screen where I could choose to boot in safe mode, ..., Restore to last known configuration, and Start normally again. I chose to restore to the last known configuration once again and decided to give up on the install and went to resize my partition back to normal size. But this time, after going into the screen with the safe mode options, none of the options would work and it would go into the blue screen saying Unmountable Boot Volume and windows has to shut down to prevent damage. It shows the windows logo for a second and instantly goes back to the blue screen. I tried rebooting numerous times but it never worked. I gets the error 0x000000ED (0x8238FE30, 0xC0000032, 0x00000... Read more

I had a missing dll file and some software would not launch. Used a resgistery fix software which seemed to work well but my email software was not working properly. The support tech advised me to restore the backup from the registery cleanup then reboot my system and reinstall a different version that would not mess with my email software. I restored, and when I tried to Reboot I got the blue screen Unmountable Boot Volume. Researched this with Dell support (my computer is a 2400 series Dell) rebooted to the utility partition and ran the dell diagnostics. When it checked my hard drive the test failed with error oFoo:1A44 BUT the seek,s.m.a.r.t.,start unit, stop unit passed the verify failed giving me the same error. I restarted and ran IDE diagnostics and received an error 7. I then went back to the dell support site to find the only option they have is for me to restore which of course means I loose all data and drivers. If I truly must restore can I possible save information from my hard drive by connecting to an external hard drive? I was told this may be possible through the IDE port? not sure what or where this port is and if this is truly possible. Seems to me I would need another computer networked to my sick computer to save data...if that is even possible?? Suggestions?

This is a common Windows XP error, only way is to Reinstall the Operating System, you will indeed lose all of your files, but reinstalling a new OS is the only fix. Since you claim you made "no" hardware changes, then it's really the only way.

Hi helpers,

It's a very strange situation I am stuck on since yesterday.

When I turned on my laptop yesterday, that windows did not load properly and came up with Blue Screen of death with this 'Unmountable Boot Volume' error.

After tons of research online, I found so many different tricks to get it working but no luck so far.

I can't boot my laptop at all, I get to the Windows Recovery Page which gives me 2 options:

1. Launch Startup Repair (Recommended) >> This doesn't work, comes up with the windows 7 background with a cursor and stays there for ever, no dialogue box or anything.
2. Start Windows Normally. >> This keeps me putting into the blue screen of death loop.

So, I then inserted the Win 7 DVD to boot windows from there and perform Start-Up Repair. >> That's doesn't seems to be working either.

I have also performed the chkdsk, chkdsk /r, chkdsk /f /r, but NO luck at all. Tried bootrec /fixboot, bootrec /fixmbr. But that did not helped either.

I am not sure what has caused this problem, but it is just doing my nut in now. I got 2 partitions on my HDD, 1 with Operating System with some data under my user profile and 1 partition with all my data.

I am wondering if there's anyway I can get round of this situation and get it fixed, if not then If I did a clean install then WILL I LOSE BOTH THE PARTITIONS or the one with just the operating system on it? Plus, if it's just the operating system partition which will be lost, ... Read more

Hi, I'm having problems with the Unmountable Boot Volume error and the "Blue Screen of Death".
So I had a trojan virus and it spiraled into something completely horrible!
I don't have the Windows XP CD, or at least I don't think I do. I found a packet for Windows XP that has a bunch of discs that say Windows XP Developer, Windows XP Update, Windows XP media center, etc.
Everything I do it goes to the blue screen. If I go to safe mode, it goes to a blue screen. If I start it normally > blue screen. I try to to do the ThinkVantage button(I've an IBM Thinkpad) > blue screen.
Now, all I can do is get into the BIOS. but from there I don't know what to do.

I don't have any discs, floppy discs, etc.
I can download something onto a USB. That's about it, but I really a lot need help.

I am aware the blue screen of death post has probably been up here a few times but I haven't found any real solutions as of yet. Maybe somebody has an answer to this problem.

My steps have been:

1. From the Windows Error recovery screen, I click Start Windows Normally and it takes me to unmountable boot volume error screen. Reboot.
2. From the same screen, I then choose Launch Startup Repair. The screen flashes like it wants to continue but reverts back to this screen. No matter how many times I click Repair - or even when I wait for the countdown to choose it itself - it always flashes and returns to this screen. Reboot.
3. I put in the Vista OS disc and click "any button" to boot from CD/DVD. Windows loads files, then remains blank. The disc says it is used to reinstall the OS. Is this also the recovery tool CD people are talking about?

Any suggestions? Thanks much.

Have encountered a problem with my PC, (which is a second-hand one about 2 years old). FYI, it has an Intel Celeron Processor and Windows XP Professional OS. I did not have the Windows XP disks or manuals supplied with the PC, so I can’t do a clean reinstall of the OS even if I wanted to.

The problem is this. In recent months, the PC would not shut down on frequent occasions and so I was left with no desktop icons on the screen and with only my selected background picture and Windows Start bar on the bottom of the screen. So, I’d often resort to switching off the PC at the mains power socket in my home…seemed to be doing the trick I thought! Had to do the same last night.

Anyway, today I booted up my PC and could only get the selected background picture with no desktop icons and only Windows Start bar on the bottom of the screen. Switched off again at the mains and turned back on after 5 minutes and now get the following message (black screen with white writing): -

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your file and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

Have you upgraded to Windows XP recently? This could be a factor, if so.

This error can either be caused by incorrect BIOS settings, a pin connector unrecognisable by Windows, or the Windows partition is corrupt. See a Microsoft KB article on this for more info.

Please can somebody help me!!!

I keep getting the blue screen error: Unmountable Boot volume 0x000000ED error when I start my Windows XP Pro computer. It happened a day ago when my computer crashed and I stupidly switched the mains power off. I have tried all the options: safe mode/ last known good configuration etc and it all ends up with the Unmountable boot volume error.

I have read previous posts about using the Win XP CD and running the recovery console and running chkdsk /p or chkdsk /r but I can't find my WIN XP CD. I have downloaded the boot diskettes from MS website and tried using them instead, and it does load the files, but when the 6th disk is in, instead of a welcome screen so that I can get into recovery console, another blue screen error appears with the error code 0x0000007B. I really don't know what to do now. Is that another error all together or is it related to the Unmountable boot Volume error?

Any ideas of what i can do next please? If there's really nothing that can be done to fix this, is there anyway I can still backup my files or is that too late? One thing I noticed is that when I type dir/w in DOS prompt, there are only 14 files on there, does that mean I have lost all my files or is it because of this error that I can't acces them?

Sorry about all the questions, any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
