ok so one day my computer got really really hot and shut down. i have not been able to get it going since then. i finaly got to a point where i could get some stop codes and was wondering if anyone could help me with this.

this is the stop code i got wiht my 6600gt vid card in
0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0x8084325F, 0xF7C82028, 0x00000000)

someone told me that it was the video card so i pulled it out and put in an old geforce4. then i got this stop.
0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFF7, 0x00000000, 0x808442B8, 0x00000000)

any help you guys can give me will be great.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Both those error messages are normally associated with your ram - either a bad stick or incompatible..

I suggest you download Memtest86, install it on a floppy and then boot using the floppy.. Run the test on each separate module (if you have more than one) and then all together..

Let the test run for a couple hours on each stick of ram and let's see what the results are..

thanks for the info. but i have tried swaping out my memory. no change. i got the second error again. i had this issue before with a dif system and eveyone had said it was the memory and i swaped it out and no change. so i did a full re install of windows and it worked fine. but now i cant even get to the format.

The last error message could also be the result of bad drivers in your display adaptor..

Microsoft Fix

I would do the ram check first.. Then start looking at the video drivers..
