When booting, I am getting the blue screen with the following STOP message
STOP: 0x0000008E (oxCoooooo5, 0x88456097,0xB31FA954, 0x00000000)

I haven't recently installed new hardware but my computer also disconnects from my network (though it still shows as being connected) and my bluetooth will disconnect (all DEll products) at random times... while I can reconnect the blue tooth, I can't disable and reenable my network card so have to reboot... when I do, I get the blue screen many times before it will eventually reboot. I can start in safemode with networking.

Any help would be soooo appreciated!

How does it behave if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking? If better then something is starting at boot that is causing the problem.

Advanced startup options - XP
Advanced startup options - Vista
Advanced startup options - Windows 7

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP
How to use msconfig in Windows Vista
How to use msconfig in Windows 7 and Windows 8

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab (for Windows 8, the Startup tab has a link to open Task Manager/Startup tab. Use that.), record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.
