Coincidence! I'm also experiencing this STOP ERROR message.
Strangely enough, it only appears when I login to two Windows XP accounts at the same time, then logoff the secondary account and switch back to the primary account. When the account loads again after switching users, I'm attacked by this:
STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0X8054A832, 0XF42C06B4, 0X000000)
Very annoying. But I don't use the switch user capability much because I'm the only user on this machine. Still, I don't like an imperfect system! But I'm no debugger or dump analyst.
My research concludes my problem to be related to a driver. I'm sure my RAM is in perfect order. My system's second OS (W2k) handles perfectly- no problems there.
A 0X8E STOP ERROR Message (or 0X0000008E in long) is KERNAL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
. The next parameter, 0XC5 (or 0XC0000005) is STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION
. I'm sure this would boggle Mr Gates too.
RAM is usually the problem, so try doing 'trial and error' with it. You may also want to undergo the tedious memtest
, to diagnose any problems with your sytem's memory.
