I'm fixing a pc for boy in our road. He's had multiple issues, all but one now fixed after a clean install of Windows XP. However, the pc is still crashing to a blue screen.
I've searched online for hours and can't find the same error message:
" A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to previen damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, 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 use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0X00000008E (OXC0000005, 0X8054B2B2, 0XB8E37B40, 0X00000000)
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance. "
Any suggestions gratefully received... My suspicion is the GPU is faulty but i don't have another one to try.
