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.

I put the dvd in and nothing pops up, so where do go to view the dvd

Be sure that the DVD unit is plugged correctly into the laptop. Second, if nothing "pops", go to my computer and open from there the dvd content. If the dvd it's not present on My computer, it means that it's not correctly connected, or it's broken.

If You can play Other Dvds Very Good. Then Make Sure Your Dvd Have No Scratches. If So Then Wash it with Water. And Clear it with smooth cloath.
If Still U Facing Problem Then You can Check It In Another Computer.
