I have a Dell Dimension E521 (I'm at work but I believe that's the one I have), with Windows XP Media Center 2005 installed on it. I have not installed anything but the drivers and I continue to get BSOD codes. The latest one was:
STOP 0x0000008E (0x80000003, 0x804EF483, 0xF1E16D50, 0x00000000)
I tried finding it on the microsoft website to no avail.
The one thing all of the error codes tell me is that I need to 'disable bios memory options such as caching & shadowing' but otherwise all of the codes are different.
I can use all the help I can get. My warranty expired the exact same week I started having errors and that was month's ago. I do know a bit about the hardware of computers but the software is another thing.
I appreciate any help anyone has to offer. Thanks!
Edited to add: I should also say that I am able to turn on the computer and use it for a few minutes (5-30) before the BSOD pops up.
