Answers :


Based on your post/description, you have three (3) concerns:
1. "master reset" - if you are ferring to the BIOS/CMOS, normally this would require that you open your PC and on the motherboard, temporarily move the jumper from 1-2 of Jumper PSWD to 2-3 and then back again after a minute or so. Alternately, a reset can also be done by removing the internal motherboard Lithium battery for a couple of minutes.

2. "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" - refers to a hard disk problem which can either be: a. defective/missing partition; b. corrupt format/files/OS; and/or c. defective hardware/HD.

3. "blue screen" - normally displays when Windows is booting and is indicative of either: a. defective memory and/or its contacts are dirty; b. corrupt/inappropriate video drivers, defective video card and/or its contacts are dirty; c. corrupt drivers/software/applications; and/or d. corrupted/defective hard disk.

Corrective procedures would require any or a combination of:
A. Determine if your HD is still functional by temporarily installing it in a 2nd PC. This will also allow you to backup your important files if the HD is still accessible;
B. Repartition, reformat, reinstall your OS. You need to borrow an OEM XP Home installer CD and use the MS Windows key in the sticker at the side or back of your Dell Dimension B110;
C. Clean contacts or replace if determined defective the memory and/or video card.

If you were successful in repartition, reformat, reinstall your OS, you also need to re-install the drivers which may be downloaded from here. Additionally, manuals and other related information are available here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
When booting up to Win XP you may get a error that reads "Unmountable Boot Volume". This is probably because your boot.ini file is messed up.
