    Periodically I get this strange blue screen in XP where it shuts down the os 'to protect the pc' and begins a memory dump..

    The error message seems to be as follows:

    STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC00000D, 0XBF820B68, 0XB8FCA778, 0X00000000)

    Win32k.sys - address BF820B68 base at BF800000


    Does anybody have a clue as to what this might be??

    do you get it when doing a certain task or is it random?

    Not time to google the links - but from my memory a stop code of 8E could well indicate your memory is dodgey.... I had ti once with some very temperature sensitive RAM, but it could equally be timings or something esp. if you are overclocking or anything. Try running the memory testing app - either M$ own or maybe the memtest one and see if it finds any problems with your memory.
