2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.

6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type the following command and press enter.
Chkdsk /r

Once your machine has finished repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press ENTER to restart your laptop.

You can also try typing the following command if Check disk fails to fix the issue. At the same command prompt, type fixboot and press enter.

When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer

Dell inspiron 1545 will not finish booting, will


Sounds like a profile issue. Boot to the safe mode, create a new user account, reboot and log on to the new account and see if anything works any better. If it doesn't then more than likely you are looking at a reinstall of the operating system. You should be able to backup your data in the safe mode.

Safe mode boots okay but not in normal boot - no error either


Do you have the original recovery disk? I recommend inserting the recover disk, restart the computer while continually pressing F12. Select boot from CD, press any key when asked, and you would want to do a "repair". That should fix your problem.

Windows XP fails to load and Computer will not start up.


Boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix master boot record. This should solve your problem.
