    For the past several months, I have had numerous problems with blue screens of death on Windows XP 3rd edition. Over this time, I have switched out every component in my system, including the power supply. My current hardware is correct. The latest error code is : 0x0000008E (0XC000005, 0X338DD9E8, 0xA5ABB868, 0x00000000). I have used Google extensively to try to determine what this means. The error code usually changes, but the one listed above is the latest, and most begin with the code 0X0000008. Anyone know of a site or a tool that can decipher what this means. I am out of ideas to fix this. Have tried both Nvidia and Ati cards. Even tried Windows Vista, and it blue screens much more on Vista. Sure could appreciate some help. Thanks.

    Really sounds like a bad memory stick. Test them all. It could also be cache memory that is faulty, but test your sticks first. I'd almost bet...

    MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
    Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)

    If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

    If you are running Vista and can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:


    Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

    If that doesn't work try a new harddrive.
