Dell Dimension 4300 desktop screen goes black after windows splash screen appears. Have reseated RAM.


After hitting the power button on your computer, throw it into "BOOT MODE" and select your hard drive. See if this helps your computer load. If so, you will have to go into your BIOS Setup and make your current hard drive your Primary Boot Device.


If this doesn't help, load your restore disc and check your drive for errors.

Your problem shouldn't be anything more than a few registry errors OR a boot problem.

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.

I have a dell inspiron 6400 and every time i turn it on i get a blue screen and it say: a problem has ben detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME...


its called the blue screen of death and it could have been caused by something you installed recently or a hardware issue, have you tried booting your computer into safe-mode using the F8 key if you cannot boot into safe-mode without getting the same issue then you may have to format your hard drive

I get an error message about an unmountable boot volume..when I try to start in safe mode, it just starts back with the same error message....what do I do? Dell Dimension 8250 running XP.


hi,

When ur booting up to Win XP you may get a error that reads "Unmountable Boot Volume". This is probably because your boot.ini file is messed up.
So, what do you do about it, panic and try to mount your boot in your computer...... No that is probably not a good idea.
You can boot to the XP cd and when you see the Welcome to setup press the letter R
You will get a dos prompt
Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter
When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter
"Y" and enter at the prompt
Then type "exit" and hit enter
The system will now reboot into Windows
If for some reason that don't work for you, you can boot to the recovery console like above and...
Type "chkdsk /r" then enter
When done type "exit" and hit enter.
This will take longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.
