Our family PC recently stopped booting to Windows XP. When this system tries to boot to Windows XP, it stops and displays this error message:

Quote:
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, 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 updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options 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
(0x80E5C920,0xC0000032,0x00000000,0x00000000)

The hard disk is most likely dead. You can try a system repair to see if that helps, otherwise the disk is dead. We had this recently at work with a dead hard disk.

Another thing you might want to check is your IDE cable - this looks very similar to something I experienced as well. In my case, the IDE cable was loose. It was detecting the drive, but not the boot loader, which was kind of odd. I reinserted the cable and it worked fine.

It can't be the IDE cable, because I recently had to move the motherboard and the hard drive into a new case, which would mean that I would have disconnected the hard drive and then reconnected it later. Also, this Windows installation had the same problem last May, but then it started working again. Also, the hard drive seems to be fine at least for other purposes.

I just restored this system using the Emachines Restore CD-ROM, and after that, it stopped displaying that error message. It works fine now.

Keep in mind that i can return.
Maybe from program or a virus.

You could always use the windows program to test your hard drive.
Right click the hard drive -> click the tools tab -> check for errors.

Disk defragmenter might be appropriate too.

I have always found that Diskeeper does a better job defragmenting hard drives the the windows disk defragmenter.
