I have been having some major trouble, my computer would continually restart and reboot without any reason, I would receive a variety of errors.
Stop: 0xc0000008e (0XC0000005, 0X804EDCO, 0XEB67B8CC, OX0000000)
PLUS OTHERS i DO NOT HAVE I FRONT OF ME.
THE ERRORS WOULD ALSO MENTION DIFFERENT SYSTEM PARTS:
I Followeed the instructions in the malware star here forum, but I could never complete a scan before I was rebooted (it would happen in safe mode also)
So I finally tried to repair the installation, but during the installation it would freeze up, and/or I would receive some error that would say
FAILED TO LOAD LIBRARY WINDOW/SYSTEM32/CATSRV.DLL
At this point I had read a member of this forum who had been having som similiar problems, so I deceided to format and reinstall.
I disconnected everything except the monitor, keyboard and mouse. Including my extra Hard drive.
I then formatted and reinstalled. During the reinstallation I was required to restart many times because it would freeze. I would also get errors that some file could not be found retry or skip, (for example shell32.dll) I never skipped always retried. Eventualy XP was fianlly reinstalled.
But now during the reboot I receive an error invalid boot ini file boot from c;\ windows, I do not have a C drive.
I reinstalled the drivers, I do not have any ! or ? in the device manager. I also reinstalled SP2. The computer still reboots and it seems like the error always has to do with Win32k.sys.
Most of the time it was just a Stop error.
Sorry I am so vague on the errors I left my list at home (I ahve to use a computer at the library). By the way if you have not noticed am not vary computer savy.
If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it. If I could get a list of things to try so I do not have to keep running back to the computer at the library, if something works or does not work.
Once again thanks ahead of time.
