Re: Unmountable_Boot_Volume

Blue Screen with this specific error is as mentioned usually an inaccessible boot file. Can be a corrupt/missing file OR a failed hard drive. Best option would be to run your manufacturer's diags disk to find if the drive failed. Else work a reinstallation of OS. (if you are in warranty, your friendly tech support guys can guide you thru this - pretty common issue)

Re: Unmountable_Boot_Volume

This refers to a hard drive fault or a system fault where windows cannot find the boot.ini file to boot into windows. You will need to get in the bios if possible F2 or Del on startup and see if you hardrive is listed in the standard cmos settings listing. If not there is normally an option to press enter to auto identify or press f12 depends on bios make and save settings and exit. if it then shows try booting again. If not then the drive or ide connection to motherboard is damaged. You can also set your CDROM as first boot device if you get into the bios in advanced cmos settings, insert your windows cd, save settings and exit for a reboot and when prompted press enter to start from cd and let windows find your hardrive and attempt to install the system files, if there is no Loding windows message at the end of the file installation its a sure bet that the hard drive is faulty.

Release the scroll key

    • 1 Open and power on the laptop.
    • 2 Wait for the laptop to fully boot.
    • 3 Locate the "Scroll" button at the top-left of the keyboard. It is under the volume panel and between the "F12" and "Pause" keys.
    • 4 Press the "Scroll" button.
    • 5 Test it by opening a spreadsheet and using the arrow keys to move around on it. You can open your Microsoft Excel program or create a spreadsheet online by using Google Docs (free online productivity software).

I am trying to find out what the blue symbols on the function keys of my sk 9020 keyboard stand for

The blue keys serve as a secondary function for your volume control, monitor controls and pause play fast forward rewind (in media mode). In order to use the blue keys that are numbered from F1 to F12, you must depress and hold the Fn key that is located at the bottom left side of the keyboard. Here is a way to test it: Open up any file that plays sound for longer than 1 minute (60 seconds). While this file is playing, hold down the Fn key and simultaneously press F8 and listen to the volume get louder or Fn and F7 together and listen to the sound get lower. The picture of the crescent moon F1 will adjust the brightness of your screen. F2 will magnify your screen. F3 will take you to your email. F4 will take you to your internet home page. F6 will mute the volume. F7 will lower the volume. F8 will raise the volume. F9 will rewind your video playing. F10 will stop the video. F11 will pause or play the video. F12 will fast forward the video.

Can`t figure out keyboard on acer aspire one, blue numbers and letters etc Karl

blue number etc are functions that are connected to the blue fn button in the left hand corner.
press and hold the blue fn button and at the some time one of the other buttons.
eg volume + or - for volume up and down or the moon shape for hibernate, or the sun to change the screen brightness,antenna button to switch on and of your bluetoot or wifi, or the screen button to switch on and off your external monitor port on the back etc. the blue number are your numeric keypad like on a normal keyboard this can be used in the same way by holding the blue fn button down at the same time.

Selecting booting device

Normally with the new laptops you have to press F2 to access your bios settings, you will definitely be able to select the boot device from there.

If F2 does not work startup your laptop and watch the screen, there must be an option that will tell you which key to press to enter bios.

If the screen comes and goes to fast for you, press the pause button on your keyboard so you can read it at your own time and do your actual selection.

Hope it helps.

Before reinstallation take backup of all necessary file in a separate Hard Disk from your (C: ) Drive , existing desktop , my documents , share folder, etc. to do this you have to connect you Hard Disk with another workable PC.

After taking all necessary backup, setup Windows freshly and it is recommended to format C drive during fresh setup.
