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.

Geetting an Error : Rundll32.exe


RUNDLL32 is the Microsoft Windows program that loads DLLs into memory so
that they can be used by specific programs or by Windows. This behavior
could be associated with a programs not responding properly or is associated
with spyware programs and viruses. Anti-virus software and firewalls do not
fully protect your system against the majority of spyware and privacy
threats. Spyware is commonly bundled with software downloads, attached to
e-mails, or transmitted through networks so it can appear to be legitimate
software, but once installed it can be nearly impossible to detect and
remove without the help of a dedicated spyware removal tool such as:

Ad-Aware 6.0 (build 6.181)
http://www.lavasoftusa.com

SpyBot 1.3
http://www.safer-networking.org/

SpyWare Blaster
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html/

HiJackThis
http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

Please make sure that you download the updates for each of these programs to
ensure complete detection of known spyware programs. Although nothing is
absolute in removing spyware and keeping it off, downloading and executing
the programs above can dramically decrease future infections.

Also please utilize free virus scans from the following sites:

Trend Micro
http://www.trend.com

Bit Defender
http://www.bitdefender.com

Panda
http://www.pandasoftware.com/

McAfee
http://www.vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

After Spyware / Adware is remove, you may get an error finding files on
reboot

After you use anyone of these programs (with the exception of HiJackThis)
you may receive an error of some sort after rebooting your system. This is
pretty common. Many spyware programs add themselves in the Startup location
and execute when Windows boots. If you recieve an error when rebooting after
removing spyware, do not panic. This is more than likely a startup remnant
trying to access the spyware program that is no longer on your computer.
HiJackThis is a great utility to find and remove these startup remnants.
However, there is a less technical way of removing these items:

(1) Click START to RUN and type: msconfig
(2) Select the STARTUP tab
(3) Uncheck the file that pertained to the startup error message you
received
(4) Click APPLY and OK
(5) Reboot your system

If this fails to fix the startup error message after reboot, there are still
options:

(1) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup
(2) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(3) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup
(4) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(5) Reboot your system

Facing windows XP problem


Try running Windows in safe mode by turning the computer and holding down on the F8 button while the computer is booting.

Instead of the Windows XP screen you will get a menu displayed. Select the safe mode option and press enter.

If Windows doesn't complete startup in safe mode, you will have to reinstall Windows.

What anti virus program are you using?

My computer will not go to stand by or sleep mode


Were you able to make the computer go to sleep mode before? Well what you can try doing is go to start, run and type msconfig, click ok. You will get the system configuration window, then go to the startup tab in the system configuration window and at the bottom of the window there is a button as disable all, click that and on the same window there are startup items, select the antivirus program and items that you would need to have at the task bar. Then click apply and ok. You will get a message to restart the computer. Click restart. As it restarts you will get a message saying that you have used the system configuration window, click do not show me the message again in the message. Also you can go to start, right click on My computer and go to properties, click the hardware tab, and select the device manager button. That would show you the device manager window. From the list of hardwares listed in the window, right click on network adaptors, properties and under the power management tab uncheck all the power options checkboxes. Now you can close all the windows and try to go to sleep mode again. You can also try disconnecting the USB devices as you try going to sleep mode and see if that works, if yes, try connecting the USB devices one at a time and check again.
