My dell dimension 3000 locked up on me while browsing the web. After turning pc off, now I get error message saying windows has been shut down due to UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME. I upgraded 1 week ago from a celeron processor to a pentium 4 processor with no problems until now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First try to replace ram with known good one.. if you have two eject one and vice and versa.. run system to see if it's working.. if it doesn't then try to install windows on it.. If it's not Harddrive bad sector that has corrupted your windows. .It would be either RAM or a virus...
First of all you have to identify the blue screen error code. Blue screen errors normally occurs due to infected windows files. You need to scan PC to remove malwares, junk and virus. Also update the drivers that control your PC.

What Email are you using?? If you are doing internet based web mail,(you have to log into a website to see it) you are loosing your connection intermittently. Other browsing of the web could run without caring about the crop. If you are using pc based email that uses the internet to send you still might have an intermittent connection. Your program definitely thinks it is talking to a server and the connection is dropping. If this is totally on your PC and you have only one drive you would have other problems if the drive were failing.
If you mean you need to install windows, you need to set your cdrom drive as first boot device in advanced bios settings or it will try to boot into a non-existent windows.
Make sure your hdd is showing as the master drive, save settings and exit bios.
Re-boot pc with windows disc in cd drive and hit enter when prompted to boot from cd.
