I have encountered a problem on my old quantum-fireball 7.6GB hard-drive, it boots up to the windows logo and then the dreaded BSOD comes up and says:

A problem has been detected & windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


Technical Information:
STOP: ( 0x81247d98, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000 )


Can anybody help me please!, i dont wanna lose all my data

The drive itself is probably OK. Put it in another computer as slave first if you can and backup your data. Then put it back and experiment to get it to work. A reinstall of Windows is a hot tip.

I had this ancient laptop that refused to boot up when my wife wanted to use it - can't remember what the error message was but I told her to pick it up about an inch and...

DROP IT!

PC then booted up first time - HDD was stuck through lack of use.
