Question about Operating Systems
Whenever i am starting the Laptop it shows a blue screen with the message--- "windows shut down to protect your machine from damage, press F8 and go to safe mode to remove a newly installed hardware or software, ......"etc.
and at the end of the screen its written
stop :- 0x0000C1F5(0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
i tried but it doesn't allow me to enter in safe mode with F8 or even recover the system from the recovery cds
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.

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.
