6 Year old Dell B130
Pentium M 1.70 GHZ
1024 MB RAM
The battery has been dead for 1-2 years.
I have been running plugged in to outlet.
1. BSOD: Unmountable_Boot_Volume
So I did a little research.
Easiest fix...Boot from Windows XP CD and Repair...
Problem: I change BIOS configuration to boot from CD. When booting from CD, I still get the BSOD....??
Question: My XP CD, is titled "Reinstallation CD Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition." Is this the correct CD?
So, After being unable to boot from CD, I'm starting to think hardware failure....
I run diagnotic tests from BIOS menu.
Pass all except - DST Short Test - FAIL.
Error Code 1000-0146 "DST Log contains previous errors"
Error Code 1000-0141 "No hard drive detected"
I research and read
Question - Could it be the battery on the motherboard?
BSOD Unmountable Boot Volume.
Old A*s Computer.
Try to repair using XP Install Disk.
Cannot boot from CD, after setting BIOS boot priortiy to CD.
Think I might not have the correct XP disk.
I run, Diagnostic tests from BIOS.
Fail DST Short Test.
I think, it might be the motherboard battery.
Thanks for the help, Take this opportunity to score some Karma points, I'm a poor med student.
