My Dell has a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD): UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. It seems angry at me.

    Yes, your computer is probably angry at you. You don’t give it updates. You don’t blow the dust from the keyboard. You are a negligent owner.

    “STOP 0x000000ED UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME” error message
    Service Code: H1K3581
    Hitachi GST Travelstar 5K100 HTS541080G9AT00 (13G1584) 80GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5″ IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    I could not access this drive in any way (not even the recovery partition). I extracted the drive and connected to it with my trusty SATA-to_USB device. Once the drive was recognized and assigned a drive letter, I used the command prompt to issue the most useful command in the computer repair business:

    chkdsk /r e:

    This process identified numerous issues. Deleted corrupt attribute list entry with type code 128 in file 10406. File record segments unreadable: 15256-15259. Deleted indes entry Desktop.ini in index $130 of file 15254. Recovered lost files. Verified secuity descriptors. Verified file data.

    Once I was able to log-in to Windows, I captured the “My Documents” folder to a DVD for safekeeping. There is no recovery partition, so I did not restore the OS to factory state. Instead, I performed some maintenance functions and installed Microsoft Security Essentials. PREVIOUSLY, THIS MACHINE HAD NO ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE! This is outrageous… I ran a full virus scan and installed hundreds of updates: IE, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, Java.

    I tightened the screen hinge screws, but the screen is still wobbly. This unit will probably not be used, so it might not be worth the trouble. http://vk2k.com/Dell-Loose-Hinge/
