    Hi all,

    I have a terrible problem with my setup. Randomly, I get a system crash preceeded by a blue screen with the following error:

    STOP 0x0000008E
    (0xC0000005, 0xBF8BBCEB, 0xF057C3BC,0x00000000)

    Then I reboot and after a while when I use the computer a bit more, suddenly it crashes again with the same message.

    I have heard it could be to do with RAM??:confused:

    Please help me out,

    Cheers,

    Ben

    What is the event viewer?

    I have only got two DIMM slots... I have tried removing one 512 stick and it still does not work... How should I set up the BIOS?

    Remove the other one... put it in a different slot, etc. I'm not familiar with your bios setup so you'll have to read your m/b manual for help there, or let us know the make/model/revision of your board so we can help you research it. Keep messing with the settings though... you won't hurt anything and if you mess it up so you can't even post, then just clear your cmos (via m/b jumper) and start messing around again.

    I had this same problem

    I got new MB and Processor...athlon xp 1800 to be exact. and a K7s5a Mainboard. After I installed all my hardware from my previous computer and booted up .. I got the same message. Unfortunately for me I had to reformat the drive...GRRR!!! But after that it worked fine.

    I have a second computer same configuration, only problem with it is that it hangs when I have the processor clocked up to the 1800 setting (1.53ghz) but it doesn't hang on the 1.15 ghz setting.. I don't get that. I'm working with microsoft to find out why it's doing that... HAHA!! They first told me it is because of my sound card of Norton Anti-virus. I disabled them and that didn't work. So I'm waiting for what their next guess is gonna be. If you guys have any similar experiences could you please let me know what you did to fix it.


    Thanks....
