Solution:
use the following steps below:

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

If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is
installed, type chkdsk /f/r, and then press ENTER.
At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to
restart your computer
But if you dont have the operating system cd, you will have to remove the hard drive connect it to another machine and perform the steps above and then connect it back and it should work.

Yateesh Varma.

You will at least need a Windows installation CD to fix the BSOD 000000ED (unmountable boot volume)

This link shows how:

Do you by chance have a recovery partition on your Inspiron (pressing F12 when you startup up)?

I need to restore my computer to the factory settings. I have an HP PavillionDV5000 with Windows XP. When I open PC Recovery and select "PC Recovery", the computer automatically shuts down and...


After you've used your laptop for an extended period of time its hard drive may become filled with files you don't want or even infected with malicious virus programs downloaded from the Internet. If you don't want to go through the folders on your laptop and manually delete each unnecessary file you can restore the computer to its original factory settings instead. Restoring a laptop wipes out any existing data and entirely reinstalls the operating system.

1.Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
2.Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.
3.Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
4.Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."
5.Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

Can I do a factory restore on my laptop without the CD?


Hi annick_s,

You can do a factory restore without using your CD as long as you haven't deleted the Recovery partition. Follow the steps below to do a factory restore;

1) Turn on the computer.
2) When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10> key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears.
3) When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery. To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.

CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

4) After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.

If this information was helpful, please rate it.

Thank you for using fixya,

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...


Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.

Instruction:

  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    Get a bootable Install CD for whatever version of Windows and re-install windows from the CD drive. (Windows XP Home I imagine). If the laptop won;t boot from a CD you can alter the BIOS settings to allow it. If you don;t care about your documents, do a DESTRUCTIVE install which will wipe your Hard Disk.  Beware if you do a non-destructive install  that if your problems originated from a virus it could still be on your Hard Disk. If you need help with getting the BIOS  settings changed lemme know.
