Hi...I've recently had many issues with my laptop (Inspirion 1000) but so far it has worked...until this afternoon! It started making strange clicking noises and then it shut off...this happens periodically so i restarted it.
First it turned on like normal and then the black screen came up with the Windows XP logo. Instead of the log in page it switched to a blue screen and gave me a long error message. Something about Windows failing due to posibility of harming the system. It also read: unmountable_boot_volume
It went on to tell me I should restart the computer in safe mode and remove any new hardware I've installed...except I haven't installed or added any new hardware recently. I tried to start it in safe mode and it just did the exact same thing. I also tried to reinstall Windows XP but it didn't install.
I've tried dozens of things but I cannot figure out how to get past the blue screen. Any help?!?
