hello everybody,

yesterday...i was using my computer normally, doing nothing "heavy"...

suddenly, a blue screen comes up telling STOP* UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME and some 0x0000and some hexadecimals...

now i am on a live knoppix cd and it is working fine, so im assuming its something to do with the harddrive...

what to do?

im on a laptop, so getting a new harddrive is hard...and this laptop came with windows already installed....

is it possible to fix using a external hd?

also, i tried installing knoppix from the live cd, but when it tries to write to the hda, it says it keeps getting errors on all the hd sectors...

:whistling: i hate hardware problemssssssssssss

can anyone help? thank you very much,

M.S.

Boot off your Windows CD, and press R on the "Welcome to XP" screen.

Log on (if prompted) and type "CHKDSK /P /R" and press Enter.

Let it run. When it's finished, take your disk out and hit the reset button. This should, in 99% of cases, solve this issue.
