Well my computer, (its a Dell windows XP desktop), has the blue screen of Death ( again, well actually it had it since April) but here's the thing i keep pressing
F8, safe mode with good configuration, and it winds up saying this:
UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME

STOP 0X000000ED
(0X8A57900, 0XC0000006, 0X00000000)
am i doing anything wrong?
So I called Dell yesterday out of desperation (and boredom), and apparently they said this:
Dell- You need a pre paid credit card in order for us to help you :icontrollfaceplz:
I also have a purple reinstallation CD would that work or no?

Were you messing around in the BIOS/with the hardware? If yes, explain what exactly you were doing. If no, try a reinstall and tell us how that works.

sounds like it could be a hard drive error.

Which model? Is it with an old IDE drive? If so, you may need to enable "autodetect" or "Auto" in the BIOS. Other than that, a disk check [link] is in order.
