samsung NC10 notebook trouble (yet again)

#1 Post by Shad0w_Pr0phet » Sun Jul 05, 2009 6:54 pm

right for aome god unknown reason my laptop decided just not to boot one day, and whenever i try booting it, it fails hard and the following message is displayed,



" A problem has been detetcted 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 screen error, restart your computer.f this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturar for any windows updates you may 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 the components, restart your computer, press F8 and select Adavnced start up options, and then select safe mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x000000ED (0x862D8C08, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) "

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler: Give this a go
Taken from this website

1. Boot from your Windows XP CD. You might need to change the settings at the laptop's BIOS. Most modern BIOS nowadays support a "boot menu", where you can specify which device to boot from without changing the CMOS settings. It is usually tied to the F9 or F10 keypress before the machine boots.
2. I do not know if you have done a fresh Windows XP installation before, but if you haven't, what happens now is that the Windows XP installer will load the various drivers and system files in order for the installer to fully run. Initially it will ask you to press F6 if you need to install 3rd party hard disk drivers and F2 to run automated recovery. Ignore those and wait till you reach this screen:
Image
3. Notice the second option: "To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R." Do what it says; press R.
4. You will be asked to press Enter if you want to use a custom keyboard layout. Either wait for the 5 seconds to expire, or press Esc to get this following screen:
Image
5. Normally you should only see one installation as in the screenshot, which is usually at C:\WINDOWS. Press 1 as in the screenshot to select that installation.
6. There is an Administrator account built-in in Windows XP and is usually transparent to the end user unless he/she activates it and uses it. By default there is no password for the Administrator; just press Enter. If you are unable to log in without a password, you should ask who has set the password before, or call your laptop service personnel.
7. Now, type the following command, fixboot, as in the screenshot. This will fix your corrupted boot sector on your hard disk.

8. Type exit and your laptop will reboot. Remove the installation disk and your system should boot as normal.
9. If your system still does not boot, you might want to try fixmbr instead of fixboot at item 7. If you have multiple operating systems installed in your hard disk, you will need to reconfigure them to appear as a choice in the boot menu again. You should only do this if fixboot really doesn't work.
Image
10. If these steps still do not work for you, or if the problem returns time and again, you might have a failing hard disk, or you have a virus in your computer that is corrupting your boot sector. Either scenario would justify sending your laptop for service, especially if you'd like to avoid all the possible headaches and possible voiding of warranty associated with fixing it manually.

Basically you need to boot from a disc and attempt to repair the HDD. Hope these help.
