Rants *enter at own risk*

Recommended Posts

I keep getting the dreaded BoSD (blue screen of death) every time i logon to windows normally. I keep getting the same error:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80563772, 0xF8996640, 0x00000000)

The problem is i can't find much about the error, from google searching, and whats even worse is that i cant view any microsoft support webpage to try and solve the error (even though it won't be much help).

From google searching, i think i have a rootkit problem, and thats bad. I think. I'll probably get a new PC though, this ones getting quite old. :P

:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

At least my PC works in safe mode with networking, so i can at least search and post here. :)

Merry Christmas

Repairing windows, then running repair/security programs should help.

Interesting aside: My Vista repair disk that came with my laptop will install on any of my computers, though I don't think I have a multi computer license! Neat...

It's possible that you have a bad stick of ram as well. If you have more than one, try removing one and running the computer. (i.e. If you have four, take out 3, then switch out after each try).

Alternatively, run Memtest on your computer, preferably overnight.

Also, you could have the HaxDoor virus, check here to see. I'm not entirely sure.

brand should have nothing to do with it

I know little about this subject, but someone from another forum suggested that it would:

First, see if there are two entries for your USB key in the boot menu...sometimes PNY keys (and others, I suppose) have two partitions on them, and one shows up as USB CDROM and the other USD HDD (or FDD). ust try the one you haven't yet.

Only one showed-up, so I presumed one was hidden - although gparted only found one.
