Hi,
i have a Gateway computer with windows XP media edition.
one night i was juts using the computer when it unexpectedly restarted. When it came back on and finished loading it just restarted again. When i put it into safe mode it didnt restart so i tried running Ad-Aware and McAfee but they found nothing. I then ran SmitFraudFix and rebooted the computer, the problem seemed to be gone so i used it for a few hours and went to bed. the next morningit was at a blue screen that said: Windows had to Shut down to avoid a serious error, and it said to check some things inside the computer and check for updates
at the bottom it said
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xc0000005, 0xF3Fc6A1E, 0xB8861A20, 0x00000000)
everytime i try to start it it just restarts

is there anything i can do?
sorry about my info, i dont know much about computers

0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).

* “STOP 0x0000008e” Error Message During Windows XP Setup {KB 315335} Win XP
* Games: “Stop” Error Message That References Nv4_disp.dll {KB 325730} Flight Simulator, other games (wth Nvidia-based video adapter)
* Your Computer Stops Responding When You Use the Highlighter Feature & the Font Color Feature {KB 829578} Win XP

Look up the KB numbers above at support.microsoft.com to see if they can help you. If you do not think you can handle this i would take it to a professional so they can reinstall windows on the computer.

You might read this thread on the problem.
