    Blue Screen STOP: 0X0000008E

    Trying to down load Service pack 3 and my machine keeps rebooting just after
    it starts installing. Message is
    STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005, 0X8062D84A, 0XF6A85974, 0X00000000)

    Hi Nass

    Ok, you have given me a lot to work through but finding my way slowly.

    Have the following:

    In the event log it comes up with : System Error (102) 1003

    In the device manager it comes up with an unknow device : on Intel(R)
    82801FB LPC Interface Controller - 2640, have tried finding a driver but no
    luck. Have disabled it but still no luck.

    Tried running pstat.exe and dmpchck.exe but got the following message:
    Windows cannot find'pstat.exe/dmpchck.exe". Make sure you typed the name
    correctly, then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and
    then click Search.

    As for new software I did install a new printer - HP Deskjet All-in-one
    f4100 series and updates are just the normal windows ones and my AVG

    Have removed the RAM and replaced it.

    Will try find time on Friday again to work through the rest but thanks gor
    the help so far.

    Hi James,
    Can you please post back the exact verbatim of the error message something
    like this for example:

    source : system error
    Category : 102
    type : error
    EventID : 1003
    Error code : 1000000a
    Parameter 1: 00000004
    Parameter 2: 000000ff
    Parameter 3: 00000001
    Parameter 4: 80 54 4e 32

    Restore your system to an earlier date when things were working okay and see
    if that will help.
    Scan for malware and viruses on your system.

    I have run numerous malware, trojan, spyware checks and found nothing.

    I have cancelled the SP3 update for now but the machine is still rebooting
    regularly by itself.

    Going to work through a few more things on your list now.

    When a friend powers up his pc the Windows logo flashes up then he gets the
    dreaded BSOD along with the following message:
    Stop: 0x0000008e (0xc00005, 0xbf803eb6, 0xf77417c4, 0x00000000)
    Win32k.sys – address bf803eb6 base at bf800000, Datestamp 47e0e106

    The pc is a Dell Dimension 9150 (purchased 25/11/2005) running XP, Office
    2003 and Norton 360. No changes have been made to it regarding h/w other than
    attaching a router and printer. No USB memory sticks or other devices have
    been plugged in.

    I’ve tried the various suggestions in previous posts; check pc is not
    overheating, clean dust and dirt out, re-seated all connections and
    components without success.
    I’ve gone into the Boot menu using PF12 then “Boot to Utility Partition”
    (where is this Partition?) and run all the tests repeatedly without any
    errors occurring.

    Thinking there was a problem with Windows, I tried using the Dell supplied
    Windows reinstallation disc having changed the BIOS to boot from CD. This
    throws up an error saying that it can’t find the hard drive. This implies
    there’s a problem with the HDD or its controller, however all the Boot
    Utility tests run without error.
    I don’t have a spare HDD I could try and am reluctant to go out and buy one

    I can’t even get into “Safe Mode” from the Boot menu to look at Device
    Manager or anything else.

    Where do I go from here?

    I had a bsod with the STOP:0x0000008E error also. I tried all of the ideas above to no avail. I recieved the bsod error whenever i shutdown or restarted the computer. Eventually i noticed that the error didnt occur when i shutdown in safe mode, so i used msconfig to work out what was being loaded when the error occurred. I did this firstly by not loading any startup options and restricting startup services to windows only.

    From this i found that the error had something to do with loading avg. Intermittently the bsod appeared still and found that this was reoccurring after
    running an antivirus scan.

    I uninstalled avg and got rid of the error, i loaded avast and ran a scan and the error came back. Running a full system scan with avast revealed a trojan which avg did not pick up. it had infected the system file checker system file and avast deleted it on rebooting of the system.

    After this i was able to run a full system scan and reboot without anymore bsod messages. I hope this helps some of you.

    Hi Unknown

    The above could be due to a number of factor. Try updating to the latest
    service pack for window if it allow you to. If it still doesn't resolved
    after updating i would suggest you to run memtest, sometime it could be due
    to your ram
