I haven't used my computer in a long time and had it stored away, recently I tried using it again and it booted up fine the first time but the keyboard was off, so I shut it down and turned it back on, then a blue screen showed up saying UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME along with some various vague tips, and STOP: 0x00000ed (0x80EF8D98, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) the computer worked fine before I stored it away. I do not know anything about the hardware, I received it second hand. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask any questions and I'll try my best to answer.

Hi, you will need the Xp install Cd.
Boot from the Xp install Cd. - when prompted press [R]
Choose Windows installation [typically by pressing [1]
When prompted for password.
Press Enter.
Type chkdsk /r
[note space after chkdsk]

When fininshed.
Type Exit
And press Enter.

The Bios needs to be set to boot [Start] from the Cd - it may already be set to do so.
