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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
