This morning my high speed was so slow that my laptop jammed up. I coud not unfreeze the windows and resorted to holding down the Power Button for 4 seconds until the entire system shut off.
When I came back 45 minutes later to do a fresh boot I got a screen telling me that the system was being scanned. Then it said a file had been found (3401 "I think was the number") and was being repaired. When that finished and the system tried booting up it couldn't.
The computer kept repeatedly trying to reboot. It would throw up a blue screen error for a second but I couldn't read it. Finally I read about using the F8 key to disable the automatice reboot.
Blue screen error says: Unmountable_Boot_Volume (0x000000ED).
Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I keep googling and reading various things but nothing is making sense. I do have the 5 hp quickstore system recovery cds. Do I use these and if so HOW? I put the first disk in the CD/DVD drive but the computer wouldn't read it.
I'm desperate, its Friday night, my LIFE is on my laptop and I desperately need to have access to all my files.
Any help will be DEEPLY appreciated! Ava
