In newer model systems with XP SP3 or Higher, most likely a hdd failure.
Hold the Fn button while powering on system to run diags, see if the HDD fails the PSA Diagnostics.

Sarahjanewal,

If you have the boot disk you should have made when you first purchased the computer now would be the time to use it. If you did not make one your first step would be to insert the original cds that came with your unit then boot it up. The pc should try to boot off the cds. It will ask you if you want to reinstall drivers etc. You should try that first as it is nondestructive. I suspect it will not solve your problem though.

Now you have to decide if you need any of the information on the hard drive. If you have information you do not want to lose, and do not have it backed up, you should take your unit to a shop and have them save the information you need and then have them do a re-format on the drive. They may find that the drive is bad and they may have to install a new drive.

They should have the means to save any data you need unless the hard drive is so bad or corrupt that it can't be accessed. This could be due to viruses or mechanical damage from years of use.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the Great rating.

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 inspiron 910 no cdrom has blue screen


This is not good, this indicated hard drive failure, or windows files has been corrupted so you can not access the partition. If you have the owners manual see if they offer a way to do a full recovery, if that is not available, have the hardware assessed for possible replacement.

Best case is your os files corrupted, in that case you can try reinstalling your OS. If that does not work then there may be some hardware issue, it'll best if take it to support center.

DELL Inspiron 910 Netbook 9


Hi there!

Try to change the setting of the brightness in BIOS,
You can access bios by pressing f2 after you turn on the computer, then you will see brightness there, max out the brightness.

If it still does not work then go to the power options of your laptop then change the setting of the brightness when the charger is plugged in.

Hope this helps!

Dell Inspiron Netbook UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT PROBLEM


An UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME is a failure to read the operating system. You will need to boot to an XP CD via external Optical Drive and run CHKDSK /R to try to the resolve the error.

It is possible that the HDD or Solid State Drive (SSD) is failing and will need replacement.

UNMOUNTABLE DISK VOLUME Message on ACER Aspire One.


Unmountable boot volume is most likely an indication of a failing hard drive. Boot to your Windows CD and run CHKDSK /R and see if issue resolves. If it doesn't then you are probably replacing the hard drive.
