My laptop has begun freezing up on me and giving me the blue screen of death that has the following message:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent 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 remover or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

*** STOP: (0x0000008E,0x80571f06,0xf5859c08,0x00000000)


Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does anyone know why I am receiving this message and what I can do to fix the problem?

The most common reasons for the 0x0000008E error are
1. Bad memory
2. IEEE 1394 storage device, such as a CD-ROM or external disk drive on XP with service pack 1

If you have a removable CD-ROM(or switchable CD\Floppybay) and service pack 1 try installing the CD-ROM back in the machine and rebooting. If you get into windows update to service pack 2 asap

That is not a complete stop error

A stop error has a number, and four parameters in paranthesis.

Nriko, please start your own thread, and postcomplete stop error

Replace the memory? Or try the memory in a different system. Chances are thats what it is.

8e errors are almost always driver errors, not memory errors.

posting the entire error message though will perhaps tell us WHAT driver.

Otherwise, update all of your drivers from the manufacturer of the laptop website

Are you sure? *eyes you carefully and then chuckles* I'm gonna shoot you a PM GerryF if you don't mind. (I always like to get permission first so as not to be rude)
