Well...
My mom was on the pc surfing the net and then it got a BSOD. The pc did not want to restart. I tried to boot from the XP cd. I kept getting different errors. For some reason I decided to change the memory with another lying around. I had a 256mb and then added a 128mb. Then the pc worked. DOes this mean that the cause was the memory
THIS IS A LIST OF THE ERROR MESSAGES I GOT AND THE DRIVERS IDENTIFIED:

0x00000050
0x0000008E
0x0000007E
0x00000075
0x0000007E
0x0000008E - SYMEVENT.SYS
0x000000BE - ntfs.sys

Hi jonathan731,
Yes it could be memory or memory not seated properly. Also run your antivirus if you can get into the pc. Try removing the memory that was originally in the pc and just put in the new memory . See if you become unstable again.Then try reseating the 256 memory.

I just finished a restart and found that the pc now starts with it's normal ram after removing the new ram. Im going to change the RAM to see what happens.

okay....
I cant make the same instability occur again. I told my mom to do everything she was doing later and no error occurs with either stick of RAM.

Well, Thats good !!
Just keep an eye on it and have your mom let you know when it happens again (Lets hope not) and what she was doing !!
