I have windows vista and all of a sudden a few days ago my system continuinously reboots with blue screen error message and then shuts down, reboots again etc etc.
I stopped the rebooting to read the error message and got - STOP: Ox0000008E (OxC0000005, Ox81CBF164, Ox9642A7FC, Ox0000000)
I have tried looking up info on the net, but am really not technical and finding the suggestions really hard to understand. I have read that you need to check drivers, BIOS etc, but have no idea how to do this exactly - could someone please instruct me in layman's terms how to go about this? I tried system restore, but it says that there are no restore points to revert to. I do not have a CD - the computer did not come with one.
Any help would be great!
