Windows crashing - Blue Screen


OSNN Newbie

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...

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
