diskboot failure, insert system disk and press enter.
what can i do to get my computer to start up again, URGENT! DEPSERATELY NEED HELP!
You need to select ur harddisk as the first bootable device., that option is in BIOS settings. When switch on the system before loading OS press F2 to get the BIOS settings and select boot option in the menu and select your harddisk as the first bootable device. Restart the system now. If the same error is displayed your harddisk data cable may be failed or your harddisk may be corrupted...

Do you have installation software for the stylus? If so, I'd reinstall it and reboot. There should be a setting for you to disable the stylus. You might go to your control panel and try that. Then you can have more time to figure out what went wrong.
The floppy disk or drive is damaged, or if your trying to boot your computer and you have a floppy in the drive that is not bootable. It will try and boot from floppy first then cd then hard drive usually but floppy's are stupid and only return an error and then stops. Remove the floppy disk and boot
First remove the hard disk and see whether you have boot error if you have boot error insert the os cd in to drive and boot from the cd if it works fine you have a problem with the hard disk to clear the hard disk problem use a desktop computer and insert the hard disk as slave in the desk top and boot the desktop with the original drive then right click my computer click mange then disk management and find the laptop hard disk the delete all the part ion in the laptop disk then switch off the desk top and insert the hard disk in the laptop and reload the OS
You have a rootkit virus, the only answer is reformat the drive and start fresh, sorry. After a fresh install is done immediately install service(can be downloaded free from microsoft.com) pack 3, because sp2 is vulnerable to a host of trouble.
You may have a motherboard failure problem. I would ask you to check the drivers and update them but will be hard to do if you can't get past load screen. You best bet may to get a copy of system recovery and boot pc with the disk installed. Wipe computer completely clean and reinstall windows.
"Unmountable boot volume" this problem is your hard disk partition which is failure to recognize & identify the operating system running on the hard disk. Reformat your hard disk and put another operating system to run again your computer.
Did you try " Last known good configuration at start up. If after boot you press the F8 key where you said you went into safe mode, did you try to load the good known config. It sounds like you have a corrupted registry.
you may try
1) if you reinstall windows xp but it can't boot from xp disk, you may set the cdrom to piority at bios setup screen, still no boot, you need check your cdrom works status
2) if you reinstall windows xp but display no any hard disk appear that means the HD damaged, you need replace a new HD then do again
3) update some devices driver maybe needed, check from control panel--system--device manager, any triangle yellow mark, you can search from website acording the device model name, download and update them.
This problem sounds like a HDD failure. If you have access to another computer you could try and slave her drive on that computer and run a check disk on her drive. Whne you slave the drive make sure the jumpers are set you will see a diagram of the setting on the front of the drive on the sticker. To run a check disk go to:- Click on run ---> cmd ----> chkdsk if there is a problem you could try chkdsk/f Hope this helps.
