Default Boot repair

I have Compaq computer using Windows XP professional. I couldn't boot it. I got error message "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME". I rebooted computer with XP CD-ROM, clicked repair and ran chkdsk /r. After about 30 minutes, 25% of checking hard drive, it stopped with the error that the volume seems to contain one or more unrecoverable errors. I tried also the command fixboot and after replacement of boot sector, computer still gives blue screen with the same error UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME.

Any advice on how to fix the problem?

Thank you,

Default Re: Boot repair

You might want to try this program called HDD Regenerator. It does a pretty good job of restoring bad sectors. Although if you are able to recover your data and boot successfully to the hard drive again, it is probably only a matter of time before your drive crashes permanently. Get your data off of it as quickly as possible and replace the drive.
But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard... to be the Shepherd.
