Blue Screen of Death - STOP ERROR 0x0000C1F5


I have been having trouble with my laptop. I can no longer get into windows, and I am always stuck at the blue screen.

What I have tried to do:

-Googled various techniques of dealing with the blue screen. Most of which mention pressing the F8 key to get into safe mode, which has not worked.

-Tried to use the recovery disk (from future shop) which came with the laptop, which also did not help me.

Here is the technical information:

STOP: 0x0000C1F5  (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


Any help would be much appreciated.
