Dell vostro 1400 screen of death 0x0000c1f5 will not boot self repair

If you have the operating system cd, you can boot from the cd and select a repair.

Otherwise the best solution would be a clean install.
Connect your hard drive to another computer, and copy the files you want to save.
After that, reinstall your operating system.
Then you can move your saved files to the newly installed operating system.

Win vista uninstall

Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.

You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!

If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.
