    Can you boot your computer into safe mode? (Press F8 and hold it while the computer boots...this will take you into the advanced start-up menu.) If you are able to do this, you can also try booting with the "last known good configuration". Also, please indicate what kind of computer you are using with the brand and model number. You may also be able to restore it to factory condition.

You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

Black screen - Dell XPS laptop - VISTA OS


In this case I would suggest you contact Dell in case you still have a warranty on your laptop.

Laptop says that the driver is missing.


If the computer was "new" and was shipped with Vista installed, the manufacturer probably "designed" the computer for Vista, and did not create/include device-drivers for Windows XP.
So, trying to install XP will not work.

So, insert the Microsoft Vista CD-ROM (the one shipped with the computer, not a CD-ROM purchased from a retail store, nor borrowed from a friend), and boot from it, and reinstall Vista.

What manufacturer/model of laptop? Some manufacturers will ship you a set of CDs/DVDs to replace the ones that were shipped with the new computer.

Stop: oxooooc1f5


The error "Stop: oxooooc15" is usually caused by the new vista SP1.

Try the following
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Restore you laptop to before you had the problem or error.

Computer shut down


That is called the "blue screen of death". Another words your system crashed. Did you download any software, music, drivers or screen savers? If anything, what exactly did you download. If you just opened a web site, sounds like your may have gotten a virus. Try restarting and try to boot into "safe mode". Run your anti-virus making sure you turn off system restore first and delete all internet temp. files/ cookies/ and history. Delete your recycle bin/ restart and see if that takes care of the problem.
If you still can't boot without the BOD, try doing a system restore to the point before this started. Make sure to turn sys. restore back on once you solve the problem. If the blue screen comes up again, as soon as you see it hit pause on your keyboard and write down what it says; especially the error code; 0x0000008 etc.
