PC will not boot up

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.

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.
