Windows 7: BSOD-Unmountable_Boot_Volume / Hangup Problem

BSOD-Unmountable_Boot_Volume / Hangup Problem

Hello Everyone I am new to this forum.

I have a SONY VAIO (VGN-NW120J/S) that is currently running windows 7.

Computer has been running slow with slow startups particularly in the last year. Sometimes when i lock laptop and walk away when i come back it has been restarted or shutdown.

Computer began to run poorly for about 20 minutes, Started to browse msconfig to look for anything weird then computer locked up for about 10 seconds and I got a blue screen and a restart, will not make it to log in screen. Could not write down the codes with pen and paper. Now the bluescreen says UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME every time. Made it past log in screen a few times but screen only shows black.

Crashes every time during startup but when trying to boot in safe mode i noticed it has a hangup on CLASSPNP.SYS for a long time then it crashes. Startup repair didn't fix anything. Ran chkdsk and it locked up. ran CHKDSK again later on and got a new beginning message saying it needed to check for consistency and it deleted a whole bunch of things now it runs every time i start up in normal mode? ran memory diagnostic 2passes didn't see any problems. Ran startup repair again after chkdsk deleted things, startup repair took a very long time. All the tests said completed successfully error code 0x0 the last thing on the list said :

Unspecified changes to system config might have caused a problem.
Repair Action: System Files Integrity Check & Repair
Result: Failed Error Code: 0x45d

I was also able to write this down on a piece of paper.

Problem Signature:
Problem Event Name: Startup Repair Offline
PS3 - UNKNOWN
PS4 - 331
PS5 - AUTOFAILOVER
PS6 - 1
PS7 - NOROOTCAUSE

Not really sure what to do at this point, any help would be really great!!

Changing Ownership Of Folders On A Hard Drive

I'm having trouble with my Sabrent USB Sata/IDE adaptor. I'm trying to get files and folders off of a hard drive. I can't get my computer to recognize the hard drive most of the time. When it does recognize it, i can't get to any of my important files. As far as i can get into it is Users then when i click my folder "Tim" windows explorer locks up. I tried several times to change ownership of the folders but it always hangs on a random file everytime and never finishes. I can't cancel because that never finishes. The end result is usually windows explorer freezing up.

I'm i doing something wrong here?

I had no problem at all using this cable on an old IDE drive.

Hi Tim91,

I'm sorry no one's gotten around to helping you since your original post - it happens from time to time as this is a very busy place. However we do all we can and generally don't leave anyone hanging if possible.

Your case sounds an awful lot like a failing harddisk (although malware is another possibility). It would be time to run a full HD diagnostic using the corresponding software provided by your harddisk's manufacturer. If you don't know who made it, you can visit the Seagate website and download SeaTools for DOS which will handle any HD.

You'll need to find a way to run it from within a rescue environment such as an USB stick or your Windows rescue disc or install DVD. Nevermind! SeaTools for DOS is a self-booting image you can burn to a CD and then start from there.

If you need more assistance please don't hesitate to post back.

Sounds like a HD problem rather than the interface. (Tim91, I just replied to your other post about a similar problem - the same problem?)

Suggest you avoid opening the drive through Explorer and just open an administrative command prompt. (Use Search in the Start menu, type cmd and then rightclick on the entry it finds and "Run as Administrator".)

Once there, type chkdsk /r X: where X is the drive letter of your external HD. This will check the filesystem and then scan the entire disk surface for sector errors and try to fix them or mark them as unusable. This may take several hours, but you're free to use your computer in the meantime until chkdsk finishes.

Let us know what the results are.

That sounds almost certainly like impending HD failure.

However, to completely exclude the possibility that it's a problem with the SATA/IDE-to-USB adapter, you could try to connect this SATA harddrive internally by opening up your PC and plugging it directly into one of the motherboard's SATA ports and connecting power to it. (Obviously, don't do this with the PC turned on.)

If you're then able to read the drive OK, it's the USB adapter. If it fails again, I hope you can afford a new harddisk.
