All right so a little while ago, I was having problems with my hdd and DVD RW drive not being detected and so on and so fourth. IF the IDE cable was plugged in, it had no power. Without the ide cable, it powered up. I resovled the issue by putting a new IDE cable in for my hdd, but the dvd is still doing the same thing.

I just today started getting this error after about 5 minutes of it being on (logged on or not)

Problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, follow these steps.

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x806FF94F, 0xB59E33C8, 0x00000000)

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.

Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

I've googled the error code and it came up with anything from a virus to a mainboard issue...

I did Microsoft's fix thing on it and I had to stop because when I finally got the point of deleting files they were non-existant so I concluded that a virus was not the issue..

Any help would be appreciated :whistling:

My specs are :
ECS N2U-400A
AMD Athlon 2500+
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
2 GB Duel Channel RAM
120gb Western Digital hdd
