    The error 0x8E are almost always due to hardware issues, particularly RAM. Though sometimes they can be due to faulty drivers.

    You are going to need to run memtest on your RAM. This takes a long time but well worth it.

    Here is a tutorial from TechSpot on how to use it: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic65114.html If the directions are not clear or you need clarification let me know.

    Hmmm, when the Memtest screen was up did any errors show? if so, you have RAM that needs to be replaced. It can't be fixed.

    This was on memtest: "Memory error detected. Copying between 576f17b and 576f09d did not result in accurate copy. Memtest has detected that your comp cannot accurately store data in RAM."
    Thx for help
