Hi, my name is Chris!

Normally when you receive the error "inaccessible boot device" this means that the hard drive has failed, unfortunately. But let me gather some information before we jump to any conclusions.

Was the computer working fine one day and then the next you started it up and got this message?

Okay thanks, ***** *****'m guessing that when you shut the computer down and turn it back on it just immediately goes back to that message, is that correct?
