Hi,

i have an Aspire One Model # ZG5 wich is not booting up. I was watching a movie all of a sudden the computer froze and started beeping. I turned it off and tried watching the movie again. I restarted the computer and a blue screen pop up saying that there was a problem and windows was shutting off. I restarted the computer but now is in a loop. It doesn't boot up , I tried safe mode with no luck. It gets to the Windows Xp Logo and then a blue screen appears, which i can't read because it only stays for a second. I was only able to read "Unmountable boot volume problem" after several tries. Now is in a loop, it doesn't boot up. The safe mode and last known good configuration boot options appear and it tries to boot up but after the Windows logo the blue screen with the error appears. Please help!

Possible hard drive problem...

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingc...opic28744.html)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.
