EDIT I'm going on vacation for a month so I wont be able to use this computer for a while. Perhaps when I get back I can resurrect this thread.

I'm finally back from winter break!

Got a stop error message during the shut down process last night 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x806350C1, 0xB7B03B28, 0x00000000)

Also I would like to ask if this might be a hard drive problem. Before this I couldn't even install windows (it said it was unable to locate operating system) I downloaded the XP boot disk from bootdisk.com because I saw this solution in another thread. What I did then was erase my Master Boot Record on the drive, then I was magically able to install XP! My question here is: was there something else I was supposed to do after erasing the MBR? Using that XP Bootdisk was really confusing so I'm not sure.

Also have any of you heard of this program called Error Killer? LINK It seems very attractive to me and my desperate situation.

Got two more BSODs

0x1000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000000, 0xB761ACBC, 0x00000000)
and
0x000000C2 (0x00000003, 0x84132180, 0x853DC800, 0x853DC780)

Its looking like I'm just going to try reinstalling windows, unless you guys have anything to say about that XP Bootdisk thing.

I'd rather reinstall my operating system than mess with my registry. And PC MightyMax is requiring me to buy it. It also doesn't seem to like ANY of the shortcuts on my desktop, and I'm pretty sure they all work. Also can anybody tell me whether or not Errorkiller is legit and if I missed something when using the XP Bootdisk?

I think I may have found the solution to my problem but I need confirmation from you guys!

This will take a moment so please take a journey with me...

As I may have mentioned before, I used XP Bootdisk from bootdisk.com to delete my Master Boot Record and then my previous problem with installing windows was fixed.
But then that installation of windows was really unstable.
I was in the recovery console accidentally when trying to repair my installation of windows when I saw a command that looked familiar. So being the curious cat I am, I typed it in to see what would happen and this is what I got:

Now I'm no genius when it comes to computers but I'm starting to suspect that I've installed windows with NO MBR. Now that would be sure to cause problems.... maybe.

Could not having a master boot record be the source of my problems?
Please give me your thoughts on this.

OK I got another STOP 0x00000050 error, so I guess I'll try what is suggested in the first link you gave me.

BTW I really appreciate you guys sticking with me through this.

Would be nice if I could have some input for my last post though.

Hey! it sounds like your having the same problems as me... man the best I can figure it is Windows blows chunks... but it works... if that makes any sense. I read a good joke on this site you might like, "Computers are like Air Conditioners, they work great untill you open Windows". :whistling: Ive reinstalled Windows 5x, and every time I have different problems. People keep telling me different things to try and I keep getting different problems. Ive been going throught the same steps as the "GEEKS" have suggested to you and I still cant get the [bleep] thing to work... oh well ill just keep tryin... Thanx to the "GEEKS", people like me would be lost without your advise! To you_silly_mortals hope it works out for you!

Everytime I look at your stop errors it it always something different

remove all soundcards, usb ports and everything else but the mouse, keyboard and video card. make sure they are unplugged from the mobo. If you do not get a BSOD, than we will have to work from the ground up.

Hello you_silly_mortals...

Look in C:\Windows\System32 and see if you can find the file vcredist_x86.exe. Is it there?

Download and install this Microsoft Redistributable.

This should get some of the errors.

Let me know the results.

I ran the .exe but I never actually got a message saying that it was completed. Some bar just filled up really fast and then the window disappeared. If this was supposed to replace that file that you told me to look for, it's still not there.

Oh well, I guess I'll reboot just in case it did work.

Just run it for a while. If you still get errors, let it get a few and then send me a fresh WinAudit report so I can see what's generating them. Reboot several times before sending the new report.
