unmountable_boot_volume?????

Can anyone help me fix my gf's computer. She has an eMachines running windows xp. When it starts up it gives you 4 or 5 options like safe mode, safe mode networking, safe mode with command prompt and others but they all lead to a blue screen that reads that error. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME... I don't want to loose any files and data. What can I do?

Thanks in advance,

Julio G

try booting from a windows cd if you have one, and repair the install.

It won't let me into safe mode or anything. From what I have read I need a windows xp disc to fix it, but I don't have that. All I have is the restore disks but I want to save my data. So does anyone have a windows xp disk I can borrow?
