Unmountable_Boot_Volume means two things. it's either you have bad sectors on your hard drive or Windows is corrupted.

This can be fixed usually by CHKDSK /R command on the recovery console.

Boot your computer to BIOS and set the CD drive as primary boot option.
Make sure that the XP cd is in the drive. start your computer and when it prompts you to boot to cd. press a key on the keyboard.
Wait for it to load files. On the XP installation menu press R. If it asks you for the windows installation press 1.
If it asks for the admin password type it if you have one or just hit enter if you don't.
on c:\windows> type chkdsk /r then hit enter. wait for it to finish (may take several minutes)
type exit when done.

God luck and hope this helps. =)

Please try to reboot PC and get to the BIOS,

Pressing F2, DEL or ESC key during bootup, and change there the Boot Priority, Boot from CD.

Let me know the result, otherwise I will investigate further.

Also let me know the Hardware Detail of your PC.

Please follow the steps below...

1. Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes and then put it back in.. be sure it''s fresh and fully charged

2. VERY IMPORTANT...Turn the "Hold button" ON.. (slide it to the right)

3. Now, plug it into the computer, it would be better if you used a USB 2 port that is located on the back of the computer (it''s on the motherboard)
4. Go to "MY Computer" and see if it shows up as a "Removable disk"
5. If it''s there, then reformat it to ...FAT32...not FAT.if you need help with reformatting let me know.
6 Unplug it and let it finalize. Give it lots of time.
7. Return the "Hold button" to off. If this works, it should be like new. Of course, all your media will be gone. If it doesn''t work, oh well...back to the drawing board.

Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.


the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.

try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

good luck

Out of signal


Signal problem could be down a many reasons,
maybe weak signal area, or even a damaged hardware antena, but also can be a software problem too, so yes would be worth a try to reformat the phone. Note that all data stored on the phone will be lost unless backed up on to PC or microsd card.

You can hard reset the phone (Factory Settings - Reinstall)

Switch the phone "OFF"
Hold "3" (button) + "Green Call" (button) + "*" (star button)
Switch the phone "ON" while holding the above three buttons.
Continue holding for about 20 seconds then let go.

Please note this will format all the saved information stored in phone memory.

Try this;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://rapidshare.com/files/67740173/e200fw01.00.12.exe____

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.




Best of Luck.
