  1. One of mates, is having a problem after he installed a game on his new Dell Comp. But after playing for 30 minutes he shut down his comp. Then 5 minutes later he returned to his Comp. Turned it on, and now he can't get into Windows at all. Its comes with the error Unmountable_Boot_Volume and the comp. needs to be shutdown (The error code is *** STOP 0X000000ED,COX823708C8, OXC0000006, 0X000000000X00000000) Since I nkow quite a bit bout how computers work, I tried all the options that are possible (Expect Format) but, you know when you press F8, When you select it (any one) it starts running then comes up with the Unmountable_boot error. The last thing I've came down to is formatting it, but my mate doesn't want that, Is there any other options?
    Note: He has Dell Windows XP Service Pack 2
