hey question, is it possible for the rom to burn out?? cause last night my computer slowed down severely due to lag in the ram, so i restarted it to clear the ram, and very sadly it braught up an error that said it wasn't able to mount the boot volumes

It is possible for the cmos chip to go bad, but it's not common and it couldn't have caused your computer to lag.

Did the computer attempt to boot then restart then showed the failure?? It sounds like a HD failure to me.

Clear CMOS using the jumpers and see if that fixes it. If not, you will need to figure out a way to test the HD you boot from.
