My computer just stopped working out of the blue, when I turn it on the Windows XP loading screen comes on for a couple minutes then the BSoD comes on with the stop code 0x000000ED, UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. I haven't installed any new hardware lately so I assume it must be a virus? I wasn't able to boot in safe mode so I put in the Windows CD and booted it from there. I ran Recovery Console, typing in chkdsk c: /r, it ran until 75%, froze for about 10 minutes then dropped down to 50% completed and hasn't moved since. I don't know what else to try. This happened to me about a month ago and I reformatted my computer and it has worked since, I'm hoping there's another way to fix it. Any ideas would be excellent...
Thanks in advance for your help!!
Okay so after Recovery Console tried for a while, another BSoD came up...
Stop 0x000000CE, DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATIONS
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sys
