Hi I really hope someone can help. ACER 4520 will not boot win at all. I have used everfy option in f8 none will work. Just BSOD every time with same error 0x0000C1F5.
However I did get system to change somewhat when I used
Left ALT/F10 which does a forced previous 1 day earlier restore. Now I get
A screen if I hold down space bar while attempting boot, it says
WINDOWS SETUP [EMS ENABLED] when I tried that option it starts to load windows
With a white bar bottom screen saying windows files loading,
Then after about 15 to 20 seconds it BSOD AGAIN with same error message
Now if I try safe mode attempt, doesn't matter which safe mode I use, it tries
To load win & even looks like its going to work with the normal window bar
Which appears during loading attempt.
Vista home prem
Acer aspire 4520
AMD TURION 64x2 mobile tech
TL-58 (1.9ghz, 2x512kb L2 cache)
751mb NVIDIA GFORCE, 7000M turbo cache
Dvd supr/multi dL
I have checkd all memory & hdd devices all are ok.
Mem test passed as well. Cpu is ok, cooling fan works.
I even took lappy totally apart cleaned all frome dust & reapplied cpu amd with gunk
I also pulled cmos battery from pc for several min around 10 to 15 min
So bios was completely reset.
After putting unit back together I attempted reboot
Going to f2 bios setup screen setting unit to default settings.
A no go. Just same crap BSOD with same error.
I may be wrong but I think that error is a corrupt file error?
Does anyone know?
Anyway if anyone has a clue please let me know.
Thank you, blitzer ;\
You might want to do a Vista repair. You change the boot order to boot from the DVD drive which has the Vista disk mounted. Then choose the repair option. That should replace most of your system files while retaining your installed programs.
