bluescreen help
Hi first post hope you can help
I have a Dell 1525 laptop, with vista home premium, and it worked fine for first month and now it will not startb at all. i am getting the
A PROB HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER screen
STOP: 0x0000c1f5

I have done all hardware checks with diagnosis disc, and h/drive is fine
I have spent 1 hour on phone with Dell and was told it was a software prob as all h/ware is ok
I have tried starting in safe mode and last known good configuration
I have tried re-installing vista with dvd but keep getting bluescreen
I have even tried to install xp and it begins loading files then tells me it cant find a hard drive (puzzles me as hard drive is found and checked out okay during system test)

What can I do now?
Thre must be a simple solution surely.I do not want to pay Dell £40 to fix this over the phone for a 1 month old laptop, considering all they will do is go through a set procedure on screen in front of them, and I will be doing all the work at my side(plus I will be paying for phone call as well)

I just went through 2 episodes of blue screen. I got my computer in Septemberand my first blue screen was in January. It showed a couple of time from then to April and finally it showed up everytime i booted up. It's the blue screen of DEATH in case you didn't know. I took my computer back and got a new hard drive. The second time I booted up I had blue screen again and went back. Now I have a new mother board and since mid June I've had no problems and the system works and responds better. In short, you need to get it checked out by someone because it's not a minor problem and you could loose everything. Backup everything you want to save if you can and and take it to an pro.
