I recently updated my T61 with the usual updates, but accidentally unpluged my computer before the updates were complete. My computer was running on AC adapter alone because my battery was dead. Now I have a new battery and when I turn my computer on it tells me that it was not shut down properly, but windows will be starting. The start screen for windows XP shows up and after a few mins. the blue screen pops up and says something about unmountable boot volume. I don't want to recover/resart my computer because I will lose data. Can anyone help with this problem?

Hi, welcome to this forum. Sorry to hear about your trouble.
On boot up push F1 to get into the bios and see if the harddrive is recognized. If it is try booting in the safe mode by pushing F8 and see what happens.
Don't know what else to say at this moment.

Last time I saw that was when the MBR was corrupted. This is what worked with XP.
1. Boot pc using cd/dvd
2. Select repair console
3. Type FIXMRB
4. Type FIXBOOT (not sure if this is needed in your case)
5. Remove cd/dvd and boot pc.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help, but could you use a little more plain english. I am not that knowledgable about fixing computers.
Also will this cause me to lose any data?
