Well you almost hit the jackpot on that one!
Even I failed to read the stop error code that morning, mainly because I was headed to work on a bus.
But this is what slapped his AMD X2 system some abit:
Service Pack 3 Blue Screen (BSoD) -- STOP: 0X000000FC (OXBA5038E8 OX0A446963 XBA503848 0X00000001)
And also all three of us nailed it:
Stop Error Screen (STOP: 0x00000008E ...) why? - TechSpot OpenBoards
CWM just in the near future if you see a error stop message again, get a drink,
google, bing or yahoo the error message and full solution and that should help out.
Also corrisive for future reference for his system would this be advisable ?
Newegg.com - Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model KVR800D2N6/2G
If his machine can hold a maximum of 4gb why not let him get this later oninstead of doing 2 sticks of 1gb or any mix match prevent futher future memory issues ?
