Hi all

Anybody know what Unmountable Boot Volume means?

I've had this PC for two years without trouble until a few months ago. Now it keeps going wrong. I've had it repaired twice and a new chip and motherboard fitted.

Now it keeps not starting and saying the above. I have to reset it and start with Last Good Configuration, then it starts OK.

Anybody know?

I would begin with replacing the motherboard battery.

Thanks for your reply <_<

So far I have been starting by using the Last Known Good configuration and doing a disk scan every day, which seems to be working.

I'll have to take it back to the repairman to change the battery, so I'll do that if it dies on me again.

This is way out of my area of expertise, but just take off the back of the computer, take out the battery and go buy a new one.
