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??

I've noticed it happening when I close applications. each time its a different app though... happens maybe once or twice a night

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
