    Laptop BSOD

    I've got a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo MS2228 laptop which is Blue Screening with the following error:-
    UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

    This suggests the boot sector is corrupted or the HDD is failing. Choosing Repair My Computer from the Advanced Startup Menu results in a black screen with cursor but no access to Task Manager etc.
    Booting from a USB drive also results in a black screen with cursor.

    I don't understand why, if it's a boot sector/HDD problem, it won't boot properly from the USB drive.

    Any ideas?

    Update: Just downloaded Windowsd Defender Offline & created bootable USB drive with it. Booted from it only to get to a black screen again. Same situation.

    Try a bootable Memtest USB stick?

    Sorted this by removing the drive & plugging it into my laptop via an external caddy. Windows scanned/repaired & now it boots. Definitely on the way out though judging by the number of FOUND.XXX folders.
