Gateway Model #GT5056 - Unmountable Boot Volume

\015 I've purchased recovery CD's from Gateway, but how can I back-up my computer before I go through the recovery process? I can't get past the "Blue Screen".\015

Answers :

I am making the assumption here that when you try to boot, you get the message "Unmountable Boot Volume." See this link first and consider the options listed there.

\015\012This could also be caused by a damaged or corrupted hard drive.
One cheap way is to purchase a used hdd from a thrift store or a comp shop. install your software on it and plug your old drive as a secondary. this way u can extract all your files off. then reprogram that drive. this should cost $30 at the most for a 30 gig drive
