If it is Windows Vista and it happened after a Windows Update, you might have the problem as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article KB946084. No matter what you do (any F8 option such as Safe Mode or Command Prompt, or trying to boot from a Vista CD) you end up at the Blue Screen of Death.

Something is corrupted on the hard drive (not a hardware error) and now Vista has a fit if it sees the drive, even as a secondary or external drive (it goes to the BSOD with STOP: 0x0000C1F5).

The only solution so far is to erase the Vista partition and re-install Vista. You can take the drive and connect it to another computer running XP (using an external drive enclosure for example) to get the data off of it. Then do a format on the partition. Now reinstall the drive and you can load Vista. If you have no Vista disk but there was a Recovery Partition, this will now work.

    Someone found a method of fixing this problem. I have not tested it yet but Google "Galactic Toilet" and "0x0000C1F5" to find the link. It describes using the SystemRescueCD (a Linux based Live CD) to fix this problem.

With WinXP operating system, after pressing F8, you may select also "Last Known Good Installation" instead of " Safe Mode" which drives you in an easier problem solution.
If problem perists better boot from cdrom with original operating system cd in begin win setup and follow instructions intstalling over the previous installation.finally let automatic microsoft updates "on" to have your laptop up to date.
Good luck.

Can't reload windows xp. Keeps shutting down???? Acer 2700 Laptop


this happens when you have errors with the hard drive not responding to the new boot or drivers not responding. is this a clean install or a restore? if you are not using the original xp disk the machine came with you may get these errors. the blue screen usually has a message in it. let me know what it says if you get a second.

Blank/black screen at power on


This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.

Blue Screen of Death during startup


When you get the BSOD - it gives a brief description of what the error is - this should lead you in the proper direction for finding the culprit - is the computer a new configuration - is it an old system that just started doing this? Have you made any change? All these things have to be considered and evaluated.

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)

ERROR MESSAGE READS...


Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.
