My dell ensurance is out so i really need help got a LAN coming up in 1-2 weeks. Heres so info from the blue screen UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

It appears that the boot sector of your hard drive became corrupted. The problem is not hardware related and should be fixable by using the restore CD that came with your unit.

Check that batteries are charged and installed properly.--make sure driver disc is installed if applicable- check instructions as some wireless suites need you to push a small connect button to initialise them . Also try shifting the usb conector into another USB port if it is notm getting reconised.

I hope this helps

There's a collection of drivers for the GX280 for Windows 2000 and XP on the Dell website: http://is.gd/ejJcM
If you're running a later version of the operating system (for example a 32 bit version of Windows 7) this webpage might have a solution that will help: http://is.gd/ejJmo (Microsoft Technet community)

Dell optiplex gx280 keeps rebooting after bluescreen


More than likely it's a software issue.

First thing you should try is booting into Safe Mode

You can do this by powering on the computer and pressing the "F8" key every few seconds.

You should get a list of choices, choose "Safe Mode"

If you can get onto the desktop please visit the Control Panel and check to see if you've got any of the devices listed with a yellow "!" mark.

Let me know what you see / happens so we can narrow down the problem.

Computer saying error loading operating system


You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.

Dell Optiplex GX280 Bluescreen and Hardrive problem


Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.

At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

The system should boot back into Windows.

If that doesn't work follow the above steps again but after you type the Administrator password ...

At the command prompt, type fixmbr and continue the next two steps.

THIS SOLUTION IS ONLY FOR A DAMAGED FILE SYSTEM.
