Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

0x0000008E normally appears to point you to possible driver issue. Did you happen to install something new on the system (printer, camera, etc.)? It’s a possibility a Windows Update installed a “component) that may conflict on your system.

I would attempt to go into Safe Mode w/Networking and review your Add/Remove Programs to see the “install” date of your components. If you execute Windows Update, try to go to the history and review anything that coincides with when you started to have the STOP issues.

    If you can, get someone with experience to review your dump file(s) and see if there are clues as to the underlieing problem. MS KB315263 has some basic instructions on DUMP reading. A STOP 0x0000008E can be anything from bad hardware, bad driver, corrupt driver file,or security software to malware (especially root kits). A good STOP error resource is still this site: aumha.org: TROUBLESHOOTING WINDOWS STOP MESSAGES

    When system boots press and hold F8. Then see if it will boot in safe mode. If it does then there may be a problem with a recent installed program. If this still won't boot up try the process of rebooting, F8 and the select last know good startup. As a last resort you may have to roll back to a restore point. You can find info out on Google on how to do this.
