Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Our Dimension 3000 stopped booting up (blue screen "unmountable boot drive" error). I did the Dell system restore procedure which reverts hard drive to original, out of the box condition. Worked fine for 1 day then got blue screen again. Attempted reformat from system disk provided by Dell, it progressed to about 5% and I got "error caused by file: partmgr.sys. Any suggestions? I am a novice at this, but good at following directions!
Thanks so much, Bev
Your hard drive is bad, order a new one they are cheap, throw the new hard drive in which is easy and then boot from the repair cd and your computer will survive. I believe your computer takes an IDE hard drive so don't order a SATA one unless you look at the cable connecting the drive and it is way smaller than the other wide ribbon cables in the case.
