Yesterday I started to experience problem with my desktop HP TouchSmart Vista computer. After I turn it on, blue screen of death appears. I tried safe mode, command prompt, last known good configuration, repair your computer, but nothing works. Still the same blue screen appears every time and it wont let me get to safe mode. Problem started from Internet Security virus. I found an advice online, to download Malwarebytes and run a full scan, and than delete the virus. I deleted all the viruses that were checked, but it didn't fix the problem. After that I deleted files with the word "Pup", and that's when the blue screen started to appear. The error code is oxooooc1F5. I tried booting from a system recovery reinstalling CD, but it still doesn't work. When the blue screen appears, it says "disable bios memory option catching or shadowing, but I don't see it in boot menu. Also when i insert CD into drive, it makes grinding noise. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you!

Hello Outsider626,

Welcome to Geekstogo.

See if you can do this.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

Enter System Recovery Options.

To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.

To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
  • Insert the installation disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.
On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

Startup Repair

[*]In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
[*]The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
[*]Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.

Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
[*]The tool will start to run.
[*]When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
