Check the cable that is connected to the hard drive to the board. Even a small scratch can lead to this problem. I found out the hard way. but it works

Blue screen unmountable boot volume error, I have tried to reboot with the CD windows XP and the F-12 and F-2 no success. I have tried to reboot in safe mode last configuration still no success.

Sounds like a bad hard drive. You can try using a live linux cd like Knoppix or Ubuntu

Ubuntu is easier for most.

That way you'll know whether it's the hard drive or another issue with the laptop.

Blue screen of death

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.

Good luck

Blue screen during booting

Yes, unmountable boot volume usually means you need a new hard drive. However, if you have a windows xp cd, you can boot to the recovery console (press R at the first prompt) and try running a chkdsk /f command. Sometimes that will help. Thanks and good luck! Oh and if you could remember to give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks!

Computer won't boot into windows

The event of you inserting a DVD is unlikely to have anything to do with this problem. Probably just a coincidence that it happened after you did so. Hard drives die eventually and more frequently so in laptops.  I'm afraid you will have to bite the bullet and replace the hard drive.
