Cannot reboot IBM thinkpad t-21

When rebooting I received the blue screen along with this message:

Unbootable boot_volume

receive following error Stop: 0x000000ED (0x81B899A0, 0xc0000006, 0x00000000, …)

When I attempted to reboot it hung up while trying to execute agp44a.sysI have the same issue with a THINKPAD. Just keeps booting up. goes to screen asking if we want to start in Safe mode or normal...No matter which option is selected the windows fails to load and is redirected to the blue screen STOP-- Unmountable something or another. Error 0x000000ed. Then it automatically cuts out of that screen back to booting up again. I believe this is the error. Everytime it reboots I only get a flassh of the blue error screen so this is as close as i have gotten to the correct error code. Is this toast? Can this be salvaged?
It was working fine then it stared to lag a bit a day or two ago. Then yesterday--It just went to crud....so frustrating because of course I did not run an external back up on the drives.

But if it is still have the problem and no changes at all.
The problem is in your VGA driver.

follow this instruction.

1. Re Start the computer

If you have a recovery disc you can simply run it to your computer to recover your system, and that should fix the problem..

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand and based on the description, it would appear that the hard drive of the computer is either faulty or the programs stored inside are corrupted. Corrective actions could be any of the following:

  • removal of the hard drive and connecting it to a SATA/IDE to USB adapter. Thereafter connect said HD to the USB port of a 2nd PC and perform disk maintenance. This would probably be the best option since if it still can be recognized and accessed, this procedure would allow you to back-up/copy your important files;
  • re-partition, re-format and re-installation of your Operating System. But then of course this would mean that your files would be deleted;
  • do a repair using the installer CD;
  • worst case scenario is a hardware problem with the HD which of course calls for a replacement.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Would like to reset my ibm laptop it says my mircosoft online service is temporarily unavailable and my laptop is slower than ever


Hi and welcome to Fixya1

To reset the machine back to the factory settings, just follow these steps:
    • 1 Shutdown your machine and make sure that the charger is plugged in before doing the reset. Turn on the machine.
    • 2 Press the blue Access IBM button on your ThinkPad keyboard at the screen prompt. The screen prompt reads "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button." This interrupts the Windows reboot process.
    • 3 Double click "Recover to Factory Contents" at the Access IBM predesktop menu.
    • 4 Follow the recovery wizard prompts to initiate the factory restoration process. Your ThinkPad will automatically reboot upon completion.
Hope this helps!

System won't boot to operating system. Error 00170019200163


Write down the exact error messages ....... that you receive while the computer is booting Windows.
  1. Click "Start > Run Type "msconfig" in the field and click "OK." Click the BOOT.INI tab.
  2. Check the box next to "/SAFEBOOT." Choose "MINIMAL" to reboot Windows in safe mode. Select "NETWORK" to reboot in safe mode with network support. Choose "DSREPAIR" to reboot in Directory Service restore mode.
  3. Click "Performance and Maintenance" in Control Panel. Select "System." Select the "Hardware" tab. Click "Device Manager." Select the device that you added to your computer most recently. Right click the device and select "Properties." Click the "Troubleshoot" button and select the option that best describes the symptoms your device is experiencing.
  4. Click on all of the plus signs next to the entries in Device Manager to expand all the devices. See if there are any black exclamation marks on a yellow triangle. This indicates a problem with your device. Also see if there are any red X marks near the devices. This indicates that the device is disabled.
  5. Click "Start > Run." Type "msconfig" and select "OK." In the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck the /SAFEBOOT option. Reboot your computer. If the computer starts normally, you're finished. If it doesn't, reboot in safe mode and click "Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System Restore. and Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time." Choose a date on the calendar that is at least one day prior to the time that your computer began experiencing boot problems.
  6. Reinstall any software programs or hardware you removed one at a time. Reboot the computer after each installation. Make careful notes of any error messages or boot problems you experience.
All the Best

I am getting a blue scree error on my IBM Thinkpad R51 that says unmountable_Boot_Volume. It will not let me run on save mode...it brings me back to the blue scree error message. I have windows xp


Unmountable boot volume = The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.
To fix that do the following:
1.Put the CD first in the boot order and boot from the XP install disk.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select your partition - it should be C
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER. 
6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer. 
This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.

Ibm thinkpad how to clean it t settings otally and reboot factory


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD.
Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD.
thanks and have a nice day J-

There must be some driver you have installed recently. Try booting in safe mode and restore your system to an earlier date.
