  1. About a month ago my computer started rebooting about a minute after completely booting up and then it would restart so i turned off the automatic restart and i get a bsod with the stop message 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xefe569fe, 0xee147a20, 0x00000000) my family cant take it anymore because you cant do much in safe mode so help would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    Was there a message at the top of the BSOD error (eg: HAL_MISMATCH)? Was there also a file named towards the bottom of the BSOD error message?

    We need to pin-point wether or not hardware or software is causing this. Does the BSOD error message happen in safe mode? If not, while in safe mode edit the boot.ini file (START-RUN-type: MSCONFIG-select the BOOT.INI tab and check the /SOS option) and restart once complete (start PC normally). Note during boot if your PC hangs on a particular sys file.

    If the error is only happening recently, think about programs or hardware you have recently installed and either uninstall or System Restore back to a known working date.

    This is a basic troubleshooters guide in the early stages of pin-pointing a problem such as yours. If you still get errors after any of this or if you find out something further please post asap.

    Good luck :grinthumb
