When i turn on my computer i get a blue screen and the following message appears:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems contunie 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 components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Setup Options, and then select safe mode

Technical Information
*** STOP: 0x000000ED (0x81F8C9E0, 0xc00000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I haven't installed any new hardware. When I try to enter safe mode I get the blue screen again. What do I do?

Without looking at Toey's link due to my laze, I'd guess that it means that you have a hard drive problem. Unmountable boot volume means that your computer can't mount your hard drive.

Some day I'll be rich and famous for inventing a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet.
