Hi

here is the situation... had a xp box worked fine ... I changed the HDD from another machine ... kept on getting blue screens of death .. thought drivers on that HDD kept crashing the box...so i put in a new HDD fresh format , xp pro SP 2 the blue screens of death are still there????

Intel P4 3 GHz , 2 GB ram , realtek ge force fx 5950, gigabyte board ...
did a clean install on freshly formated drive without luck ... still crashes especially when I am near photoshop ... but still random ... any ideas ????

that 0x0000008e error ...

Two things come to mind:
1. Does your MB support the 2GB of Ram?
2. Bad stick of RAM?

You might want to try removing one of the sticks and try it (if you have two sticks of 1GB. If you still get the same thing swap out with the other one. IF you have 4 you get the ideal.

yes supports more than 2 GB

so far everytime I had similar problem it was the motherboard ...

but to be honest how did the computer work fine before the HDD change ?
and why would it change now? I don't think its the ram ...

maybe that old HDD now slave is still crashing it maybe I should just disconnect it but doesnt make sense...
