I am working on a computer showing a STOP error as below.

Get a bootable Xp Cd or the SIX XP Boot floppies with a non-bootble XP Cd in the drive.

Make sure you make the necessary changes in the BIOS to determine which one to boot from first.(either the CD or the Floppies). With the floppies follow the instructions as to "insert disk 2" etc Making sure that the any Xp cd is in th CD-ROM drive.

With the Xp bootable Cd Insert before booting.

All two ways:

When you get to the Setup Welcome Screen press R for recovery console.

NOW,

use all of the following three commands carefully.

1. chkdsk /r ENTER (dont forget space /r and it takes some time to finish. Just be patiient)
2. chkdsk /p ENTER
3. fixboot c: ENTER (where C is the boot Hard disk).

After all these type exit to restart. (make sure to take out all disks)

Hopefully yopur problem is solved :whistling:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure and new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installaton, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options sch as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select safe mode.

Technical Information

*** STOP 0x000000ED (0x81b27b30, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

___________________


I was told by the owner that her daughter installed a game and this has hapened ever since the computer restarted. It will show Windows XP boot up scrolly thing, then STOP error.

Safe mode does exactly the same.
