Was doing some googling and came across this forum. Seems this place knows the most about hard drive related issues.
My story is as follows, i removed my PDA from my activesync and then a whole bunch of children windows opened up in my taskbar (this has happened once before) - In order to avoid this i switched off the computer as this really slows it down...
On restart i got "Unmountable boot volume" blue screen which automatically restarts the laptop...
I've attempted to restart into recovery console and run both chkdsk /r and chkdsk /p - both of which stop on "volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems" error at 37% -
I then ran a "fixboot" - It said that my boot sector was corrupt and that it is now fixed. On reboot the first screen i got wasnt even the WinXP logo but a blank gray screen. I restarted the laptop again and i get the Unmountable story again...
Basically my question is: Should i go ahead with a repair install or something like that? If possible i would like to lose as little time doing this but if i cant the data integrity is the most vital to myself. (Applications can be reinstalled)
Or, is there any way i can fix this above problem?
Thanks for your time guys,
