Hi!

my computer was working fine, but today when the windows was starting, electricity failed... and now when the electricity is back, i am having the following msg on the screen where it scan the disk cause of bad shutdown...

" A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown 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 any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows update you might need.

If problems continues, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory option such 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 (0X82786930, 0XC000009C, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) "

i have tried safe mode n everything that i have at F8, but the same thing is there...
i will be really greatful if anyone of u can help me getting my windows back...

THANKS

Unfortunately that's usually a bad drive;

One thing you can try is booting to your windows XP CD and running chkdsk/r from the recovery console
