    Volume driver - as in audio ? You tested what, how ? Can you startup in safe mode ?

    No Windows won't even start to do safe mode. It just starts testing again and then wants me to report it. When I go into details it says the volume driver is corrupt or outdated. I tried to use the boot cd...same thing. I did a fix boot command and it was successful but did nothing.???
    Any thoughts welcomed. :)

    Before you tried to use the boot CD, did you go into setup (f2 key at startup) and make your cd drive 1st in the boot sequence ? I think you are still booting or trying to boot from the HDD.
  4. I tried everything and finally did a restore. Is there any way that you know of to get my files back? I lost it all and I just thought maybe I could get some of it back. :non:
