  1. I dont know what to do anymore, I recently made a computer purchase (Fry's 8050) and It keeps on crashing on me! I never had these kind of problems on my old Sony Vaio. It keept on crashing and restarting by itself out of no where, and giving me the BSOD. Whenever I get the BSOD I get the same message:

    *** STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005, 0X8054A51A, 0XB1234B28, 0X00000000)

    Here are my system specs

    Windows XP - Professional(5.1.2600) SP2 MCE
    AMD Anthlon 64 x2 3800+
    Frequency 2000 MHz
    L1 Cache 128 KB
    L2 Cache 512 KB
    Socket 939

    Bios

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    The error that you`re getting is often a hardware incompatiblity issue, or a driver issue.

    One of your minidumps crashes at SSI.SYS. I can`t find any info about this driver. Do you recognise it?

    One of your minidumps crashes at SYMEvent.SYS. This is your Symantec Event Library. Sometimes turning off the live update for your Symantec/Norton security product can solve this known issue.

    Alternatively, you might want to try a different security product.

    One of your minidumps crashes at ntkrpamp.exe. This is a Windows system file. Try running Windows updates.

    One of your minidumps crashes at ALCXWDM.SYS. This is your onboard sound driver. Try uninstalling, and reinstalling the driver. Check with your mobo manufacturers website for a updates drivers.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
