  1. i am having some serious trouble with my pc. everytime i go on it to use it, the computer crashes after about 5 minutes and shows stop errors. the pc is win xp home edition, and is service pack 3. (all this was happening before sp3 was installed)

    i am getting the following stop errors:

    0x0000008e
    0x0000007f
    0x000000a
    0x00000050

    it has been suggested to me, that replacing the RAM may solve the problem, but i have tried that and it still is crashing, i have updated all the video, sound and BIOS drivers, but non of them seem to have stopped these messages.

    i have gone into the event viewer and decided to copy and paste some of the events. here are the recent events:

    Open each Error using a right click> Properties> click on Copy icon below the down arrow on right> Paste here (Ctrl V)

    This will give Event ID#, Source and description. I don't do mini-dumps.

    Error Events only. Information Events are just that- information. The Event Viewer has logs for everything happening in a system. Logs have 'information events' which just documents something. Logs can have 'Warnings' which are problems that that time, most of which usually resolve on their own. The other Events are the Errors, which are in the system or applications. These document the problem that caused whatever happened and gives enough information within the Error message to begin troubleshooting.

    IF you have a problem, THEN you go to the Event Viewer and look for the Error Event that corresponds to the problem. The bug checks are just documenting what was done 'after' the problem. You need to look for the Error(s). The Event Type will be Error.

    sorry i cant get the information at the moment, the computer just restarts before windows is loaded, i will try turning it back on in an hour, and hopefully it will stay on long enough to get the error events.

    Try tapping the F8 key after logo, but before Windows starts to load. Come up in Safe Mode. See if that will give you more time.
