I have had a problem for about two weeks now, my computer will not boot and a blue screen that says unmountable boot volume keeps appearing. I have tried everything, including downloading the XP startup disks, but I can't even get those to run either. I downloaded those bc I have a compaq laptop and it didn't come with an XP disk. What should I do? I have been told that my hard drive is finished and that the only way to fix it is to get a new one, but I will lose anything. Is there ANY way to get my emails or music off the hard drive before I get a new one???
