Original title: Error Code: 0x00000f on Windows 8.
Okay, my brother's computer started showing Error Code: 0x00000f right after his laptop (Dell Inspiron 3520, Windows 8) performed a series of Automatic Repairs (his words). He does not have his Windows disc with him.
It gives us three options in the Error Code: 0x00000f screen: Press Enter to try again (it led me back to the same Error Code message), Press F8 for Startup Settings (led me back to same Error Code message), and Press Esc for UEFI Firmware Settings (which led me to the Setup screen). I tried booting it
Then I went to the boot options and tried Windows Boot Manager, UEFI: IP4 Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller, and UEFI: IP6 Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. They all led me back to the Error Code message.
I diagnosed the laptop and all devices were good except the Hard Drive. It had Error Code 2000-0142.
Could someone please help?
