Windows 7: BSOD-Unmountable_Boot_Volume / Hangup Problem

(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.
This won't cause any problems will it? Can I do this with a 2.5" drive?

I read that 0x45d error is a device I/O error. Is this true? I was wondering if this would have any relation to my bsod "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" and also my problem with connecting my hard drive with a USB cable which seems to work and not work at random as mentioned in post #2.

There's definitely a relation. And yes, you can connect a 2.5" drive internally without any issues. It's exactly the same as connecting a larger 3.5" disk.

OK, I got good news & bad news.

Good News: I connected my hard drive back into my laptop. I was able to back up everything except for a few things that are corrupt under my USERS folder so all my personal data is now safe! . F10 at bootup began booting Vaio Recovery Center. I had no idea about Vaio Recovery Center, there was no paperwork on it and I did not know this was on my hard drive at all but from what I have been reading its a possibility that it is located on a hidden partition of the hard drive.

I saw "Data Rescue" and began exploring. It was very easy to figure out and it gives you the options to rescue data to an external hard drive or dvd. So I plugged in my Ipod classic and it was instantly recognized and i began backing up files. Success! Now to backup everything else! Also trying to dig around for logs.

The Bad: When I was backing up data I had a problem where my hard drive would get so far into the back up and it would make 1 loud Click sound and stop reading but continue to spin and the thinking light would blink for every second instead of erratically. This complicated my data rescue and made it take ten times longer then it should have forcing me to restart laptop and rescue in smaller quanities. On the first restart it asked if i wanted chkdsk to edit the boot files for Vaio Recovery and i quickly declined considering it has been working beforehand.

I also noticed that when the hard drive made that click sound and stopped working that the file it froze up on was corrupted. There are several of them. Could this be a head crash? Also for a long while now whenever i would shut down the computer back when it actually worked, that was the last sound it made when it was winding down a loud click.

None of my memory test boot cd's will work. The western digital disk shows its loading but instead of a screen showing up its black. So I have been unable to run any kind of extended memory tests. My CD drive is a hit or miss when it comes to booting from a cd for some reason usually forcing me to restart and try to boot again. Chkdsk only seems to run successfully when its in my laptop and not from a usb adaptor cable.

After running chkdsk since last post I was able to get to my desktop but I cannot do anything and i get crashes and bluescreens shortly after. I tried safemode and made it to desktop but it does the same thing so i boot in normal mode. safemode hangs on classpnp.sys still. Every time i bootup in normal mode chkdsk runs to check for consistency, then i get to desktop, then i get a crash or a bluescreen then repeat cycle. have done this 50 or more times... Chkdsk has been doing a number on my hard drive deleting and correcting and recovering etc.. Chkdsk is trying to repair my system by doing this but its not working. I don't think there is anyway I can get the logs either but here is a couple of things i seen several times I was able to jot down on paper.

chkdsk could not run because of a newly installed software package.
$I30 ?
WPDNSE (410) ?
chrome~1 ?
chrome.manifest ?
install.rdf ?
Tim PC <----this is mine
Tim PC Kerberos ?
Tim PC ~ 2 ?
Sdmys ?
User.bak ?
vovatile.dat ?
dbinfo.bak ?
something about yahoo, gmail, and hotmail files. ?
Correcting files in MFT <-------sounds serious
4kb in bad sectors came up everytime it runs. <------also sounds serious.

These are just some things that i kept seeing coming up that i didnt recognize.

Also at the desktop getting new BSOD's includeing "Page fault in non page area." & something about a "Crucial Thread" some other ones I didn't catch. A BSOD with just error codes, and maby a BSOD with a STOP error i can't remember. alot of messages about crucial thread being corrupted or missing or something...
Also getting alot of errors at desktop.

CCP.exe - App Error


Ereg.exe - Bad Image

OK. Just got done backing up the hard drive. A few files were corrupt. I hit F10 and went to Vaio Recovery Center. Then went to Vaio Hard Drive Diagnostics.

CPU Test: Pass

Gave me the option to test multiple hard drives C: and E:
= Hard Disk Test Start =
Drive 0
Linear Seek Test Failed
= Linear Seek Test did not pass. --- (E-HDD-001) =
=-=-=-=-=-Errors were detected on this PC.-=-=-=-
Please run chkdsk to recover the wrong sector --- (E-HDD-005)

Test on Drive E:
= Hard Disk Test Start =
Linear Seek OK
Random Seek OK
Funnel Seek OK
Surface Seek Failed

Fail ------------- (E-HDD-004)
Run Chkdsk to Recover Wrong Sector.

Fixed my laptop! Their was something definitely wrong with the old hard drive it sounded like crap for the past year, ran SUPER HOT and loud making a really loud click sound when powering down. and the last time it ran it started screeching. It was a WD Scorpio Blue 320gb

I got put in a hard drive (WD Scorpio Black 320gb) its running awesome and i got it for less then $50. Then I put in my recovery disks. Thanks for all your input in this thread!

PS: I'm posted from the laptop right now... :)
