Message displayed- problem detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage. Restart using safe mode-tried this but it did not work. Tech Information STOP OXOOOOOOED Unmountable-_Boot_Volume

If this is a corruption it may be fixable, again this depends upon your version of windows, however please be aware this may be a corrupt hard drive so you may need to replace this and reinstall.

Try this first

  1. Start your computer by inserting the Windows startup disks or the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive.
  2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

    Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
  7. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.

Re boot in safe mode if normal boot is not possible and run CHKDSK/F

That should sort hard disc errors out then download and run the registry utility, that will remove more errors. It is a free ware programme and works very well.
Hope that sorts it out for you.

Your Operating System probably corrupted due to unexpected power failure or any other reason. You may have to setup widows again.

Before reinstallation take backup of all necessary file in a separate Hard Disk from your (C: ) Drive , existing desktop , my documents , share folder, etc. to do this you have to connect you Hard Disk with another workable PC.

After taking all necessary backup, setup Windows freshly and it is recommended to format C drive during fresh setup.

BSOD- STOP error message

most bios updates are found on the compaq website, they need to usually uncompress to a 3.5 floppy or they are auto-installing programs u get from the website, your issue however sounds to me more like a corrupted version of windows, did you try a fresh installation with the recovery cds or master disks?

Blue screen w/msg: A promblem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

Youre probably going have to restore it. By doing that if there is a hardware issure it should be obvious by the installation process.

Sometimes a video card can go bad and cause this to happen. If you have another card laying around the house you might want to swap them and see if thats the case.
