    Looking for some advice I have a customers PC with the following Spec

    Athlon 2600+
    512 DDR 3200
    Chaintech Apogeee
    ATI Radeon 9500 128 Card
    Windows XP Home

    Graphics card has latest drivers for Windows XP from ATI and computer seems stable. Fom time to time however it blue screens with the STOP CODE
    0X0000008e which I belive is related to an ATI Driver issue. This only happens when the customer uses the PC not me. From discussions with the customer it seems to happen only when he launches Kazaa Lite.

    Does anyone know of a known conflict when using ATI cards with Kazaa Lite as I am at a loss at the moment and am almost resorting to trying to swap to a different graphics card either that or Kazaa Lite has to get binned.

    Any responses gratefully received.

    Try an older build of the ATI drivers, or try the Omega drivers. Also, try reinstalling KazaaLite.

    Does the stop code list an ATi driver? If its display driver it usally does. Also complete (or as much as you can get) of the error code is helpful :)

    usually the top part of the error helps the most... it tells you what has encountered the error...

    This is described over at Microsoft when installing XP.

    Try & disable the page file & see what happens.
