I have a Dell XPS 400 running Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 2. I've had this computer for about 18 months now and only the past two days have I been having a multitude of blue screens.

Anyways, I've been having multiple blue screens with different STOP errors each time.

First, there was 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xAA993230, 0xAA992F2C, 0x80574DFB)

Each time I restarted the computer after getting this BSOD, I'd get many errors from McAfee so I did what the blue screen suggested and I uninstalled the antivirus software. I guessed that maybe there was a virus on my computer so I went to Trend Micro to scan my computer but it would never complete no matter how many times I tried. Most of the time I would even get a BSOD. So I tried kapersky but I get BSODs too.

I'm positive I hadn't installed any new software and definitely no hardware recently.

Also, when restarting the computer, sometimes my Firefox browser opened up and suggested I run Windows Memory Diagnostic, suggesting that there is a problem with the RAM. I downloaded it and burned the iso. file to a disc but it never boots up.

While trying to fix these problems, other BSODs came up:

0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFFB, 0x00000000, 0x8054A51A, 0x00000000)

0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80579A51, 0xF7A2CAB8, 0x00000000)
OR
0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x805CC692, 0xB1896CC0, 0x00000000)
These suggested disabling BIOS memory options..."caching or shadowing." I don't even know how to do that.

At times when I try to restart my computer, I receive this STOP error:
0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80578E55, 0xF79D9B84, 0xF79D9880)



I usually only get BSODs when messing with anti-virus related programs, when I tried using system restore, and also using a program called MemTest. It seems like I can do everything else smoothly.

I tried providing as much info as I can. Hopefully, my problem can be solved ASAP!
Thanks in advance.

can you explain to me how to do that please? I'm not that computer savvy.

OK, I'm noticing other weird things happening to my computer after running it a while, say, 15 minutes.
- If I go to Start > All Programs, all i get it "(empty)."
- I get a random error and then my desktop icons disappears.

These could be caused by corruption due to a failing hard drive. Run the manufacturer's hard drive utility. I would back up all of your important files. You will need to find out who made your hard drive. Is this computer still under warranty?

Alright. My hard drive's manufacturer is Maxtor. I'll back up my files which will take a while. I don't believe my computer is under warranty.

I tried running the hard drive utility by burning the ISO image but every time I reboot my computer, I can never get passed the "Microsoft Windows XP" screen without getting a BSOD. Then, when I take out the disk, I'm able to pass it. I get either an 0x8E, 7E, or 7F stop error.

Any other suggestions? Is there possibly something I'm not doing correctly?

Disable the auto re-boot option in widows. This will allow you to reach the Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools to see what errors are being producted.

Use the floppy version.

http://www.seagate.c...ads/PwrMxEn.exe

Instructions:

Step-by-Step Instructions - Downloading PowerMax

NOTE: The PowerMax download is a self-extracting file.

After downloading to your Windows desktop, insert a clean formatted floppy diskette into your A:\ drive.
Double-click on the PowerMax diskette creator icon.
When the Maxtor pop-up screen displays, click on the "Create Floppy" option.


The files will extract on to the floppy diskette, creating a bootable version of the PowerMax utility. Do not download PowerMax directly to a floppy. PowerMax extracts from a Win32 environment only and will not extract from 16-bit DOS mode.

I checked and the auto reboot option is already unchecked. I looked at the Event Viewer and here are the most recent errors I see, although there are many since 2/25/07. If there was an easy way to show all of them, I would.
