    I came home from school today looking for a nice weekend but once I turned on my PC the screen just went blue!! WTF!

    I then got it to the loading screen but then it just went blue again!

    I don't know what to do :(

    I'm house bound and addicted to the PC and internet! D:

    Help?

    your boot files must be corrupt, try doing a repair using the install CD

    although I gotta say I've never had luck repairing anything with those cds and thats why I keep an extra copy of my hard drive around lol

    yeah that blue screen of death is not something anyone wants to have to deal with. I had one a couple months back and ended up having to completely replace my hard disk. Either way I ran some searches and this is what I came up with on an Unmountable Boot Volume

    Could be wrong but I know most of the blue screens give you instructions to follow, and if those dont work well then you can either take the Hard drive to an IT pro and sometimes they can restore your info or you can just say good riddance and start all over.

    Find someone with a copy of XP and just reinstall XP onto your drive. You don't loose files because you aren't formatting the disk. That's how I go from one motherboard to another when mine fry.

    i remember we had an error like this in work before and im sure it was to do with something becoming loose attached to the hard drive - have you kicked it or dropped it?

    Argh, matey. You've receive ye blue screen of death. Prepare thine home for the receiving of Davy Jones and pack for a trip to his locker.

    Sorry, your post just reminded of the black spot from various pirate legends.
