Re: Compaq Presario V200 wont boot up

Unmountable boot volume means that the computer can't read the hard drive. Which means that either the data on thehard drive is corrupt, or that the hard drive is dead (gone bad).

If you have important data on your computer, there is some disc recovery/maintenance software called SpinRite It is $89.99 but is really good at recovering data for when the hard drive isn't completely dead.

If the hard drive is still good, but only the data is corrupt, and you don't care about it too much, you can just use the restore discs that came with your computer to re-install the OS (Windows).

Your other option is to buy a new hard drive for your laptop and re-install Windows.

I have a blue screen that says "UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME" And system will not boot up any further?

This means that the hard disk drive has a problem. It could be an electronics failure or it could be a driver problem. Try to start the computer in SAFE mode by pressing the F8 at bootup. This will verify the hardware.

Computer wont start

What the Blue screen is telling you is that the hard drive is corrupt. You may be able to fix this by reinstalling the operating system that was on the PC. You will also need drivers if it is a windows operating system.If this doesnt work you may need to replace the hard drive on the PC. It should be a 2.5 in. hard drive.

The file system on the hard disk is corrupted. The only thing you can do is to reinstall Windows, and during the process select the full format, not the quick one.

Unmountable Boot Volume BSOD

0xED is not just specifically present on HP computers but all PC-based computers which has XP or later using NTFS on it. It can be resolved by doing a chkdsk /f /r or by performing a repair installation using windows. This is caused by software corruption (which is repairable using the steps aforementioned) or hardware failure, which may lead to OS reinstallation or harddrive replacement
