  1. My computer just shuts off or more often just ups and reboots itself. My boyfriend thought it was my hard drive since at PC Pitstop he did a scan and it said my hard drive was in the 35% range. So today is the 1st day with my new hard drive and it still did the same thing. I get this error message (at least this time) BCCode : 40000080 BCP1 : 8A9FF130 BCP2 : 8A39F760 BCP3 : 80556FE0

    BCP4 : 00000001 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 768_1
    **********************************
    2nd crash today gave this error:
    BCCode : 40000080 BCP1 : 8AAFD130 BCP2 : 8A4B0760 BCP3 : F78AAB84

    BCP4 : 00000001 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 768_1


    I took my computer into a shop for 5 days while on vacation and he ran defrag, scan disc, ad-ware, cleaned temp files, optimized memory, checked for malware, scanned for virus and it still does the same thing. (actually I wasnt really happy with the store guy, I told him I already did most of that scan disc stuff at home but he repeated it all). SO, my computer is 3 years old. got XP, I know I got upgrade high tech video card (im a gamer) and I got tons of ram. Any ideas? thanks !!

    NEW info:

    I downloaded the program Reg Cure and it found 1852 problems and with a payment of just $39.95 It suppose to to fix it, well I was happy to pay it IF it solved the problem but it did not, 30 minutes later my computer reboot again. I found another section called Event Viewer and got error codes out of there - here they are:

    Error code 40000080, parameter1 8aad9130, parameter2 8a3e4f30, parameter3 f78b68e0, parameter4 00000001.

    0x80 errors can be caused by many issues such as chipset or LAN drivers, software, etc. We need you to give us your hardware specs and we need to know if these BSODs are random or when you are doing something particular.
