    Thanks for your response! However I do not have any original cds, as I am under the impression that the system boot up is in the HD. Is this a possiblity? Apologies I'm quite new to this techie stuff. The Dell asks me to disable BIOS caching and shadowing in Safe Mode, which I'm unable to do. I await your suggestions, thanks!

Just use recovery console of windows xp bootable media and use the following command.

chkdsk (to check the volume).

It happens due to improper shutdown methods which has caused the system volume to corrupt the MBR.

Disable system bios

never disable system bios, i dont even know if there is a way to do that. the bios exists to provide software for your motherboard to work correctly. i suggest you download from another machine your updated bios version from and put it on a thumbdrive, then boot into safemode and load the file. it should correct any issues you have. there is a possibility that you may have an issue with your new ram. some machines are pretty specific to which types they will take. so get that information from the site when you get your bios update.

good luck!

Hi guy plz help me i got a dell latitude C640 and its not willing to detect my cd drive. after loading bios its telling me the device in the modular bay cannot be recognised and its not booting into...

check if any updates are availble for the bios
go to > drivers and downloads > put in your service tag and check if any update is available you can update your bios

you can also try restore your bios to factory settings you have an option for this in the bios menu as well and then connect the drive and then boot.

Booting problem

Try putting the computer into safe mode by holding down on the F8 button and selecting safe mode during the boot process. Once you get to the safe mode screen and windows appears, restart the computer.

If that doesn't fix the problem you will have to restore Windows.

unmountable boot volume means that either your system is corrupted, your boot.ini is damaged, or your boot sector is corrupt. Try this:

"You can boot to the XP cd and when you see the Welcome to setup press the letter R
You will get a dos prompt
Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter
When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter
"Y" and enter at the prompt
Then type "exit" and hit enter
The system will now reboot into Windows"
