Yesterday I left my Pc running a dfragmentation and when I returnes there was the crash blue screen with the following technical details: STOP: 0x000000ED (0x87749c90, 0xc00000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). I tried to reboot but even the safe mode doesn't work, same blue screen appears. Can anyone help???? Thanks!

Have a look at this it may help.

Another possibility is that a RAM module has failed. Either replace it/them or run MemTest to check it out.

However it may be that your HDD is failing of has failed. Hopefully you have a backup of the drive which you can install on a new HDD. If not you could try making an Ultimate Boot CD on another PC and attempting to recover important files to another drive.

Yes, it also says unmountable boot volume. Fortunately I have an external hard disk, almost everything has been copied there except for last month pictures of my kids :(

Thks for replying and helping.
