Blue screen of death after graphics overclock

Specs: Windows XP
Hey, any help anyone can give me in greatley appreciated...

I was happily using my 5-year-old DELL desktop. I had the graphics card overclocked minorly (about 100MHz higher than normal) when I decided one evening to try another 30. The computer froze the moment I clicked "apply" (using RivaTuner overclocking utility), so I tried to give it a cold re-boot. When I started it, it gave me the blue screen of death saying "Unmountable_boot_volume"

any help anyone can give me is really appreciated. I can't start the computer in safe mode, last known good config., or anything else...

Thanks!

Try googling "Unmountable_boot_volume" & you'll have your answer

Is there a USB stick or other USB device in it somewhere?

Yes, there is a wireless optical mouse installed on the computer, with the bluetooth transmitter plugged into one of the USB ports. I tried googling my problem, and no one seems to have the exact thing, or they are able to boot in safe mode, unlike me.

You have to boot off the XP CD, then run chkdsk /r from the recovery console.

check your bios by entering the setup on boot if it still sees your HD.

I don't think the problem is related to your extra overclocking.
Cause you try to experiment, make sure the cables from your MOBO to your disk are connected properly !!
