    Hi. I have a laptop that runs winxp. This morning when I turned on my laptop, I got a blue screen at the winxp logo boot up screen. It said UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. I thought it would be an easy fix running CHKDSK /R on the recovery console from the winxp disc. It was working fine until chkdsk got until 48% and then my computer shut down. I let it cool because it was really hot. After 2 or so hours I tried again with it next to the window. It ran until 28% and shut off again. This is a problem because I cannot fix a simple problem due to overheating. What can I do? What are my alternatives? Please help. Thanks.
