    Lacking a Win CD to boot from, get on a working computer and burn a rescue CD to boot from.
  2. Next time you start your computer, poke often, (not hold) the F8 key.

    Eventually the boot choices menu screen will appear. One choice will be to disable automatic restart on error. Use the cursor keys and move the highlight up/down to that and then press the enter key.

    Your computer will try again to start, and probably fail. There will be a blue screen remaining with a statement that it did not start successfully.

    There will be a message that looks something like:

    Inaccessible_boot_ device    STOP 0x00000007B (0000000000x0, 00000000000x0, 0000000000x0)

    In the above example, I show Inaccessible_boot_ device and a lot of zeros but your screen will show it's own error and a mix of numbers and letters.

    Write down the error and all the STOP numbers, letters and come back with that information.

    According to MS, Volume needs repair, or you may need an 80 pin cable for the Hard drive. Hope this is of some help.

    I have an HP Laptop and I face similar problem & I get this message
    STOP: 0X0000007B (0xBACCF528,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

    Please help
  7. That error message usually means the volume (part of the disk) cannot be mounted. The disk itself may be failing so it's best to download a Linux system to run as a LiveCD. Linux isn't as precious as Windows when it comes to mounting hard disks so you can at least recover your personal files to an external drive. PCLinuxOS is a friendly version to statr with - free from http://www.pclinuxos.com - best burned to a CD with ImgBurn - equally free from http://www.imgburn.com.

    After that's done, try all the Safe Mode options you see when you tap Function 8 at power up time. If Safe Mode with Command Prompt works, use the synyax chkdsk c: /r to find and fix any disk errors then you may find the disk will work and run your Windows system for a while longer but it's best to replace it as soon as possible.

    If you still have a problem,please start a new thread of your own. This one is closing opn grounds of old age.
