I am trying to repair a Dell laptop with XP. It won't start and keeps displaying this message. I think the message may be changing each time.
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xF0DC92EB, 0xF7C4DFA0, 0x00000000)
I can't enter regular safe mode, but I can get into safe mode using some other option but can't remember what it is called. I would have to reboot and write it down.
I've done registry, malware, etc. scans and have fixed all kinds of problems. I've used these programs.
IOBit Security 360
Advanced SystemCare 4
I tried Malwarebytes and Hijack This and neither will open. Malwarebytes wouldn't work on this computer even before it had this problem. Several tech support sites won't load like something is blocking them.
I don't have the disks that came with the computer. It's not mine. The person that owns it bought it used.
What else can I try?
