This POST code means there is a problem with the RAM. Reseat the RAM and if the Dell still does not boot up then - If it still does not boot up then could be faulty. Remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
The problem could be a number of things. First try and remove your memory stick one at a time and see if it boots up with out the blue screen. If not try using a windows disc and boot from cd you may have to change your bios settings to boot from cd first. You use the F2 key when you power up to enter the bios.
If you are using the cd select command promt and run chkdsk command to check if your hard drive has any errors. Also run a fixmbr and a fixboot they should replace the boot file.
If that dosnt work you might have to re-install windows.
have you tried to boot in using safe mode by pressing f8 key during boot up ???
also is there a vga port on the back of your laptop if yes make sure you arent running it as an external screen
like on a compaq i can turn off my screen by holding the blue fn key on lower leftt of keyboard and hiting the f4 key
also did you turn down your contrast fn and f10 key in caase you did or fn - f11 for brightness
so do some investigative work
Hi there "Unmountable Boot Volume." means that the system 32 folder has become corrupt and probably you will have to recover the system. If you have XP CD for a clean install, you have to change the boot order from within the bios (F2 on boot up) and tell it to boot from CD. This will change the boot order and allow you to reinstall the OS. Be warned that you WILL loose data if this is the only option open to you.
Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.
You may try the following steps below.
1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.
2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.
a. Last known good configuration b. Safe mode with Networking.
If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.
