I have the same computer except it is the 2400 Dimension. If you have a win 98 bootdisk which is a lot smaller file and easier to use insert in a:/ startup with cdrom support when its done loading it goes to a:/. When thats done your cdrom drive has been changed to E:/ if you have your XP install disk put it in your cdrom. Ok beside where it says a:/ type in e:/ which changes it to e:/ drive when thats done type in setup and it should start your install there should be a choice to repair at some point click on that and it should repair. If by chance that don't work let me know and we will do something different.You can get a 98 bootdisk at http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm just follow instructions how to make the disk.
Let me know
God Bless Greg

Dell dimension e310 desktop error message unmountable boot volu me


> unmountable

The disk-drive cannot be "mounted", i.e., the motherboard cannot access it

> boot volume

To "boot" a computer is to load a small "loader" program from the disk-drive;
that program "pulls-up-by-the-boot-straps", to read the rest of Windows from the disk-drive.


If the disk-drive has "failed", then you'll get messages like the one that you reported.

Replace the disk-drive.

How do i restore my dell e520 back to factory settings I no longer have the boot cd and it's an xp pc. Please help - I can no longer use the mouse or keyboard when windows buts up but I can get onto tho...


xp is kind of not supported as much anymore by Microsoft.

Vista will soon be this way as well.

If you lost the installation cd then you are out of luck.

Try getting windows 7 full version and installing it on the machine, if it's worth the money to you to try to revamp this computer.

Error message: unmountable boot volumn


Yes you can save your computer. But if you are running Windows XP, you need the Windows XP CD. Boot with that CD and at the first prompt, press "r" to get to the repair option.
Press 1 to choose your windows instalaltion and then at the prompt, type the following


chkdsk /r

this might take some time but at the end, type the work exit and you should be back in business.
