Re: Dell Latitude D600 with boot-up error message
You operating system is corrupted meaning that your harddrive has failed or you got a bad virus. Only fix is having the operating system reinstalled and mostly likely that data is lost. Sorry to have to break the news to you and hope that you can get this resolved.

Unmountable boot volume indicating that the system cannot successfully read the boot sector of the hard drive.
Run the diagnostics on the hard drive, if it fails, replace the hard drive.
If diags pass, boot to the recovery console, run chkdsk /r If it still gives the error after that, you can try reinstalling windows.
If that fails to resolve, then again, replace the hard disk drive
try to use another windows cd in case of a restore that is located in the internal hard drive and in the restore process it will show a problem and dont complete the restore that have two possible causes one bad hard drive second bad restore partition on restore whid virus in that case you need to restore from a original cd thanks and hope i was good help
press F2 to get into the dell bios and be sure the HDD is listed as first to boot, Then if restart turns the same error, press F10 and run the pre-boot system assesment check. if error 0141 appears, your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced
It is the Hard drive on the system. Hard Drive is failing. Another Error code for the Hard Drive is Error Code 7. Check BIOS setup if the system still detects the Hard Drive as well. You may want to consider changing the Hard Drive on the system.
F12 gets you one-time boot options, F2 gets you into setup. If you get an operating system error booting to the hard drive then try changing first boot to the CD/DVD using your Windows disk. What you do then depends on whether there are files you really need to save or if you want to reinstall the operating system. You are welcome to ask again if you need more help. ~Steve
then if i may ask what operating system are you using with yourn system before if you are sure of the kind of operating system you are using then you would have to format your system so that it wouldnt sees that error anymore and will initialize well and boot well then first of all save your document on a USB or anywhere save to backup your file then find a window xp original cd and format your system then reinstall your application and driver then if it repeats then rewrite to me have a nice day .
well what you have on your computer is the computer does not find your hard drive where you have the operative system thats why is asking you to boot from cd because the computer wants to instal a operative system may be your hard drive is damage ok lets do a test turn on your computer by presing the power botton and then press the key to boot on bios page can be (delete ,F1, F10 ) any of those every time you try to do the boot up if does not go to bios you have repit the same operation so when you get bios system display on you computer look for the hard drive and the boot order if there is no hard drive so your hard drive is damege and you have to reolace for a good one and instal the operative system
