Specs: Windows XP, fast
I am having problems boot to my hard drive.

here is what happened,

i have a laptop, an HP dv6000, and it has a s-video plug-in on the side. So i tried to watch a movie on my HD TV using my S-VIDEO cable connected from my laptop > TV.

here is how i did that, through my nvidia options i selected DISPLAY OPTIONS to single display from LAPTOP > TV ... very easy to do. and when i did that my laptop screen went blank and no picture came on TV, which means MY LAPTOP HAS LOST ITS DISPLAY and cant find its way home. so i paniked and shut off the computer by holding power button. and when i booted it back up, it went to Windows LOADING SCREEN and then went to a BLUE SCREEN saying "Unmountable_boot_volume".

:( im very sad
so i inserted my HP OS CD, went to Repair console. and it only has 2 options to repair

1. C:/MiniNT

first of all my main file are on "D" and "C" one of the 2 are for System Recovery.

"F" is my external DVD player.. why the hell does it have a windows file in it, and the external isnt even pluged in.

i tried these repair options.
chkdsk, chkdsk /r, fixboot (F:, C:, and D:)
NOTHING WORKED! still same blue screen error when loading thru SAFE MODE or NORMAL MODE or last KNOWN CONFIG.

now i went back to REPAIR CONSOLE and typed 'bootcfg /rebuild' and I HAD NO IDEA how to use this so i went with my instincts i typed in numbers n stuff and enter a few times, now i think i messed it up even more cuz when i restarted the laptop it wont even load the WINDOWS LOAD SCREEN, it says "WINDOWS COULT NOT START BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING FILE IS MISSING OR CORRUPT:

and now i have 2 different BOOTING options in bootlist when i pressed f8 and try to go into safemode or normal mode..

1. (1) <----- this is the new boot option that came up, the number that i typed and pressed enter on when i typed 'bootcfg /rebuild', and now the number one is a booting option.. weird..that proly why i have a new error msg

2. (Windows XP Professional) <---this was my one and only original boot option before i typed 'bootcfg /rebuild' in REPAIR CONSOLE
