    Well, I'm not sure what most of this means... I would greatly appreciate it if you can explain it a little clearer in 'laymans' terms. I also copied exactly what the screen says:

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    Unmountable_Boot_Volume

    If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again. follow these steps:
    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you may need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching and shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.
    Technical information:

    *** stop: 0x000000ed (0x84f4f030,0xc0000032,0x00000000,0x00000000)

    Since the 'serious error' was coming up before you booched the monitor, I'd say that you've got a hardware problem, but maybe not.

    Boot to your Windows CD and go into the repair console and run a CHKDSK /R. It'll take some time. It took about an hour on a client's P4 3Ghz box, and there was damaged data. Let it run and don't watch it. It's boring as all hell.

    If that doesn't work, try re-installing the OS from scratch. Re-format the partition where Windows install, and don't use the Quick Format.

    If that doesn't work, you're going to need to start replacing components one by one until the problem goes away.
    I'd try the RAM first, since it's the easiest to replace.
    If the RAM is good, then try a new hard drive.
    Next would be the CPU, if it's not hard-wired like on the EPIA motherboards or a laptop board. Make certain you clean the CPU using rubbing alcohol and apply a thin coat of quality thermal grease like Arctic Silver.
    If that's good, then look at power supply. That's a PITA in your car, I know.
    Lastly, the motherboard.

    Good luck. I hope you figure it out, man.

    try attaching the drive to another PC and see if you can access it from there. If not, then most likely the drive is bad. Happened to me before with my laptop drive.

    Well, everyone....I fixed the problem. Somehow a registry became corrupted, and i needed to run my windows cd and repair. The reason windows was not booting up so I could run the repair was because it was a usb cd player. It was a fair amount of work to connect another cd drive, due to my installation, but I got it. Everything seems fine now, except of course for that damn 'your system has recovered from a serious error' messege that appears every time I start the computer......any other suggestions for that one? This messege appears even if I shut down the computer correctly through windows.
