Bugcheck error 0x1000008e

  1. Hi Everyone,
    I have encountered the same issue just Today: Yesterday I've experienced a noticeable momentary mains power interruption. My PC was running at the time (WinXP SP3) but I was not attending at the momemnt. Later on I went back to my desk, and to my surprise, my PC was off and wouldn't respond to power up attempts. By pure chance, I decided to remove the power cord from the mains' socket, then inserted it again, and as a result the PC could be powered up. However, it took some four BSODs before it managed to somehow stabilize itself. Can anyone tell me what should I do in order to verify that the cause was indeed the power cutoff, is there any permanent damage to hardware and how to fix it so it won't repeat itself?

    Much obliged and many thanks to whoever cares to help.
