***....looks like the hardDrive (HD) is 'toast'!!???*** ....where do i go from here???*** ...is there some 'magic' way of resurecting the HD???*** ....if not, is there any way of recovering (any?) of the files so they can be moved to a new HD???*** [no backUp position available!!]

Device failed to mount usually points to a harddisk crash. Take it apart and check if the device Cable(IDE/SATA cable is loose) or the power cable of the hard drive. Just pull it an plug it back in and see if it resolves the issue.
You can recover your data but as always it has a price. However you can check if the data is salvageable using the demo version of the software and scan the drive for any recoverable data before you consider buying it. Download the demo from the link below burn the ISO image to a CD or DVD and boot from the CD and run a scan.

It will report results in a very detailed manner. Files marked good or excellent are recoverable. Anything below that(average, bad, poor) are usually un-salvageable by a typical home user. It requires proffessional data recovery tools.
Other wise you can simply format the drive and re-install the OS.

Let me know if you have any more questions,
Sai.

OK simply your hard drive has failed... You need to get a new one, and install it, in the laptop after taking the old one out. Then you will have to install an Operating System. & Drivers all again. You could download all of that from the Net.

If the hard drive is toast, you are out of luck. Seagate offers recovery services for bad hard drives, but there are no guarantees on a failed drive. Have you tried repairing the windows o/s. If you use the original Windows Release disc, it will examine the disc drive and find the current operating system, based on your input, it will attempt to repair the O/S without you loosing your data. YOU MUST BE CAREFUL TO SELECT THE CORRECT OPTIONS.

If the windows O/S CD has problems with your hard drive, then the next step would be to talk to seagate.

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.

Dell Inspiron8600 display is blank. It begins booting, the screen flashes with the Dell logo then it goes blank. I can see faint images on screen but can't read anything. Can I hook up to an external...


If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

Blue screen unmountable boot volume error, I have tried to reboot with the CD windows XP and the F-12 and F-2 no success. I have tried to reboot in safe mode last configuration still no success.


Sounds like a bad hard drive. You can try using a live linux cd like Knoppix or Ubuntu

Ubuntu is easier for most.

That way you'll know whether it's the hard drive or another issue with the laptop.
