My Samsung R530 won't boot, just shows blue screen of death on startup, states "A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage blah blah blah Unmountable_boot...


So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Dell Latitude C610; after initial 'DELL' screen comes up, the laptop gives one 'beep' then black screen and nothing more- power's still there; can get into setup and boot...


This chart details the specifics of what each 'beep code' means. Usually the codes come in series of 2-3 beeps not just one.
http://www.nullamatix.com/dell-diagnostic-beep-code-troublshooting-chart/
You should also make sure the 'dummy' stuff is done, like remove any floppy disks or CDs from the drive if you have one, and remove any USB drives from the laptop as they may try to boot off of them and not be able to. If you've done that, then check the chart in the link for further information. Sadly a non booting, beeping computer isn't a good sign. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

Hello my name is Michael. I would appreciate some help i have an acer aspire 5920 ad would like to reformat it however when i start the computer in any mode including safe mode it says start up repair...


Hi Michael,
Its possible to reformat your hard drive by using a DOS boot floppy disk or CD. You can create this disk on another pc then boot your pc from this disk. It will boot your pc to a DOS prompt, usually "C:>" from there you can create partitions, delete partitions and format the hard drive. The command for creating partitions is FDISK.exe. Make sure your boot disk has the FDISK.exe command on it.
Let me know if you require any further assistance regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

More info please


the page I said before hp.com has software to make usb bootdisk from floppy ;also has floppy image if you cant find a floppy.
create new folder on desktop...
download hp usb boot to desktop...
download floppy image to new folder
make sure usb stick plugged in..
unpack/install hp usb boot ..
in the program
select device(usb stick
select quick format and create a dos startup disk.
"using dos system files located at" new folder...
click start..
thats ur usb bootable ...before you add any files you can try to see if it works cos sometimes you dont have to access bios it finds auto...worth a try seeing as the whole proccess of downloading installing and making usb bootable takes about 10 to 15 min...
if bios recognises device pc will start and you will see c:/ promt
of course this isnt a c:/prompt it just fools the bios .
if at first you see non system disk gtry press ctrl+alt+del and let start again (sometimes have to do this,bit like kickstart)
if you see the same error then obviosly bios needs to be told but if its recognised then add your files to the usb stick and away you go.

Further question.....


sure I answered this no matter.
cant be sure but I think the winflash is the same as hpq flash for mine .
however , with the rompaq you create a startup disk and it reflashes bios/firmware from start before windows or driver load or anything if know what I mean.
In short you create the disk(bootdisk) restart with the created disk in drive(cd)pc boots from disk reflashes bios and restarts.make sure to remove disk before restart.

Continuing formatting trouble


Hi Shawn, It sounds as though your recovery disk has Norton Ghost incorporated into it, thus the call for the Ghosterr.txt file. Most recovery disks are just modified Windows installation CDs and if you boot to them they will immediately go into the Windows recovery which is what Sandrew was trying to walk you thorough. Having said that I?ve found a few other references to this type of issue and has usually been a result of CD read errors. - Try cleaning the recovery disk, if there are severe or numerous on it or if it is dirty that could be your problem. - If that doesn?t do it try cleaning your CD drive with a good commercial cleaner. - If that fails another option is trying a conventional Windows installation CD. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
