  1. Hi,

    I am new to the board. Have two left of everything and would appreciate any input anyone has with this problem.

    Need computer brand and model.

    This is usually caused by timings, on computers using PC2100 or PC2700... Is your memory faster than that?

    Is the message something like:
    ...recovered from serious error bccode 100008e: bp1 ...

    Are you using Kazaa, or are you a gamer using Xupiter?

    First thing I would do is run Memtest86... it could be bad ram... or just bad timings on good ram... with DRAM clock settings in error.

    Whatever, it is usually a hardware error rather than an infestation... not that that helps anything... but look for little things if the computer has some miles on it.

    PS, I think your error code is more likely this:

    bc code 100008e with one less "C", right?
