    I operate a Windows XP system. Recently I attempted to install two games on the system. One was SimsGolf and the other SimsThemePark. SimsGolf worked just fine all day yesterday and most of today. When I attempted the other game the computer crashed and the prompt for the Safe Mode screen comes up. When I try to go to Safe Mode the computer flashes to an all-blue screen with the message exactly as follows:

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

    If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If the screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Checl to make sure any new hardware or software is propery installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

    If the problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable componenets, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

    Technical Information:
    ***STOP: 0X000000ED (0X809D7E30, 0XC0000032, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

    I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO DO WHAT THIS MESSAGE IS TELLING ME TO DO AND MY COMPUTER WILL NOT EVEN GO INTO SAFE MODE. PLEASE, IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR SUGGESTIONS.

    Thank you
    Bambi :eek:
