Hey guys, was googling my errors and found you, so I'll dump my problems here. Was happily surfing the net when my computer restarted. When Windows XP Pro came back up it was in 16 bit color at 640 resolution. Windows has recovered from a serious error. I managed to change my resolution and color depth back and was working fine for quite a while. Then I was playing some good ol half life 1 today and my computer hard locked suddenly. Winamp was still paying for a couple seconds then started to skip rapidly. I hit the reset button and windows came up at 16 color and 320 res again. There was no serious error this time. I pulled up the event viewer and here's all the information I have: 12:46:42 AM, 9/1/2006 The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0x000015d0, 0xa63debc8, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini090106-01.dmp. 12:51:15 AM, 9/1/2006 Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 000015d0, parameter3 a63debc8, parameter4 00000000. The hard lockup produced no errors from what I can tell. From what I see on the forums you guys can tell a lot from the minidumps, I will attach it to the thread. Thanks in advance.
