    Occasionally when I am doing something - not online, I get a blue screen with this message: Windows has a problem and has shut down to prevent damage etc etc etc...

    Then in another paragraph "Disable BIOS Memory options such as caching or shadowing.

    THen: ***STOP:0x00008086, (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    Then: Beginning dump of physical memory
    Physical memory dump complete

    Contact system admin or tech support for further assistance.


    (I don't know how to get to the BIOS to disable those.)

    Windows XP Pro- Dell Dimension 8400
    3. gig Intel Pentium 4
    16 kb primary memory cache
    2048 kb secondary memory cache
    160 HD (147 free)
    Bus clock: 800 Megahertz
    BIOS: Dell Inc. A05 03/16/2005
    512 Mg memory

    I can be playing solitare or something simple like that when it happens. It never happens when I'm going from Word to Publisher - both open at the same time. Or Photoshop Elements.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    kybelle
