Of course, it's that time of the year when I visit techspot... BSOD popped up on Lenovo 3000 v100 Laptop, Intel CPU T2300 @1666mhz, 2gb RAM, runs Windows XP home (I Should have SP3 if not mistaken). The CD-ROM on this laptop has been out of commission for the past 3 years but we have no intention of scrapping the laptop yet as it can still do the basic things. We upgraded the RAM 2 years ago and replaced the keyboard early 2011. This is the first BSOD to pop up in the past 2-3 years. No new hardware was installed recently. My mother was surfing the internet last nite and put it to sleep mode after she was finished. This morning when she turned it on, the computer didn't come out of sleep mode but had completely resetted, citing that it was shut down unexpectedly. She also noticed that the clock/date has been off for a while and even when she sets it, it rolls back to the same time and date as before. Could this be the source of problems? I've tried resetting several times, tried running Safe mode (with and without networking), last known working configuration, and loading normally but it still doesn't start up. It displays the Microsoft Windows XP loading screen then proceeds to the blue screen which displays this stuff: UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME ****STOP: 0X000000ED (0X8A96F370, 0XC0000185, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) Hope someone can help!
