Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

4 Answers

Windows will not boot up. It gives me an error message at the sta

After the initial dell logo displays the comp is redirected to an error message stating that there is a problem with windows and that it will not start. It gives options for starting in safe mode, saf mode w/ networking, safe mode w/ command prompt, and start at the last configuration the computer worked properly. None of these will work and then a blue screen with another error message displays. The top says unmountable_boot_volume. It offers advice about restarting and hitting F8 to get into the advanced setup to disable BIOS memory and then enter safe mode, but I can't get it to do anything. The bottom of the error message reads 0X000000ED (0X82F9B030, 0xC000009C,0X00000000, 0X00000000) I ran the diagnostic for symptoms associated withe OS not booting. It gets to one part in the test where it stops and gives error messages. The first said 0F000:0228 MSG:Block 1201280. Then after that each test says IDE device failed. Can you help. I hope so, because if not I'm up **** creek.

First off you must be from the U.P. :)

It sounds like you have a hard drive issue. You can try reinstalling the operating system by booting off the windows cd. I would recommend running a full check disk before installing windows though. If the harddrive has bad sectors your going to run into the same problem later on.

Hi there
On start-up hit F2 and go into the bios, if your hard drive is there, exit the bios and you will need to recover the the system. The blue screen that you get is known as the "blue screen of death" in the PC repair trade. "unmountable boot volume" means that Vital boot string is corrupt and windows will not start.
If you have a recovery disk then you will have to use that to recover the operating system. If its a hard drive failure you will need to purchase another one and use the recovery disk again

Good luck

    Hi there
    Yes you can recover the data from the hard drive but it has to be connected to another computer as a "slave device". Once you have connected it just brows the contents of the drive and copy your data to the other PC.
    When you are satisfied that you have all of your data you can proceed with the system recovery when you put the hard drive back into the machine

    Good luck

Comp frozen.will not connect to windows 7..error while initializing the NIC


PXE ROM boot is a network boot that kicks in when all else fails. If you have or can borrow a Win7 boot disk, watch the screen closely when powering on the computer and it will tell you which key or keys to press to force a boot from the the cd/dvd rom. If you can boot from the optical drive , it may give you the option to repair Windows. READ THE SCREENS CAREFULLY AND CHOOSE WISELY - if you do not you can overwrite windows and ALL of your personal data. IF you have a hard disk failure, windows should tell you so...

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

My nx9600 wont boot up and gives me an error message.


Just to clarify: this is PART "Clarification Request" and PART "Solution" --

Sorry, but more information is needed before your question can be properly addressed. Please post back the exact error message it gives you, and WHEN the error message appears (for example: is it after you see the windows logo? before windows logo appears, but after the BIOS info appears? - where the error occurs in the boot process is very important to determine how to troubleshoot the issue).

You can always write down the exact error message, and do a search on the manufacturer's website, the Microsoft website (or website for whatever OS you may have installed if other than Windows), and most of all, Google - If searching Google, to narrow results to be more relevant, you can include your model number/mfg info in the search string then the error message (or error message #, if one applies).

Post back more info on your issue and error msg, and I will be glad to try and assist you further. Best of luck to you!

Unmountable boot volume


hi,

-this can be a hardware problem or a software problem
-run diagnostics first on the computer
-turn off computer; while the computer is off, press and hold the "Fn" key then press power at the same time to initialize the test
-if you find error message like 0142 - this is a hard drive failure; contact your manufacturer for replacing your hard drive
-if no error is found, it is a corrupted Windows; you need to reinstall Windows, ensure you consult local technician to back-up files before installation.

cheers!

The theme chane does not change anything. the error is right from the booting....the welcome screen onwards the monitor config is out?????


you mentioned monitor. this is a laptop right? so monitor is the lcd correct? now when you turned on the laptop and sees dell logo it means display is ok. after windows logo or after you type in your password display goes black? try startup repair first. using the windows media.

Booting problem


Try putting the computer into safe mode by holding down on the F8 button and selecting safe mode during the boot process. Once you get to the safe mode screen and windows appears, restart the computer.

If that doesn't fix the problem you will have to restore Windows.

Error - The Hard Disk Was Not Found


Boot into the BIOS, I think you hit the Delete key on Dell's to get into the BIOS, but I'm not sure. You should see some type of message at boot that says "To enter setup press XXX" Where XXX is the Delete key or some other key.

Once you're in the BIOS setup see if your HDD is listed. You may also find the option to reset the BIOS to default. Generally speaking this will not hurt anything and may be worth a try.
