Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Windows wont boot. it keeps coming up to start in safe mode, etc. then loops into it again. any help?? I don't have the cd which came with the computer. I get a message "unmountable boot volume"


Answers :

Windows operating system might have changed recently. You may need to repair install the operating system. Does the recovery of computer work? I could say if you don't have the repair CD , you could get one from Microsoft. Microsoft customer service person ask you some questions about the legal copy of the software on the computer. If you had registeted microsoft software then it would cost you $10 for CD.
