First how many flashes? How many beeps? Probably due to that line of latitudes, the motherboard has gone bad. Ive replaced many of those series main boards due to cheap junk they put out before fully testing them. But, you need to count the flashes and beeps to see for sure. IVe replaced dell latitude D620 main board more timez than i care to count due to trashy design. I imagine the D505 is in that same line of garbage. <;0)

I can not get past the blue screen unmountable_ boot_ volume even in safe mode.

You Dell Latitude cannot detect the hard disk.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

How do I get the Latitude D505 BIOS to see a new hard drive

1. First off all Dell computers are Plug and Play but just to be sure try reseating the hard drive detaching and putting it back in

2.. Turn the computer over. Use a standard #1 Phillips screwdriver to remove the two M2.5 x 5-mm screws.

4. Remove the new drive from its packaging.

5. Save the original packaging to use when storing or shipping the hard drive.
NOTICE: Use firm and even pressure to slide the drive into place. If you force the hard drive into place using excessive force, you may damage the connector.

6. Press the hard drive cover down until it is fully seated in the bay, and then replace and tighten the two screws.

The sound is off on my D505. How do I get it on

Download the latest drivers for your Dell Latitude D505 off the dell website or try enabling sound in your operating systems control panel.

I said "Operating Systems control panel" because you did not mention what operating system you have.
