I can't start my notebook. I'm getting an error message "Stop 0x000000ED, (0x812D0818, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) unmountable boot volume". I've done nothing either software or hardware-wise to prompt a computer hickup. I suspect a hard-disk failure. It's a Dell Inspiron 1000 nearly 2 years old. Can anyone interpret the error codes for for me. I've got some information on the 0x000000ED which indicates a damaged file system.
CAUSE This behavior can occur if either of the following conditions is true: • Your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and the following conditions are true: • You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable. • The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes. • The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.
