hey guys i have a bluescreen every so often at random times...
sometimes it comes up every 5 mins and other times once in about 2-3 days...
it says something like:

a problem has been detected and widows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

and the technical info says:

***stop: 0X000000 8E(0XC00000005, 0XC8054A1B0, 0XB095FBAO, 0X00000000)
there seems to be something wrong with my comp but what is it and how can i fix it?

thanx

What operating system are you using?

Bluescreens in Windows often indicate a memory error. You could have a bad stick of RAM.

Not if your RAM is bad. I'd check that first before doing something that drastic. There isn't a whole lot of information available at this point, but I'd guess that it's a hardware problem.

I recommend running a memory test with something like memtest86 or similar utilities. There are free ones out there as well if you search.

Every 5 mins? Sounds like a hardware problem

Replace your memory - Or take your computer to a local PC shop and let them have a look

OR call the manufacturer -

As it say spork, could be the memory but I advise you to use memtest as can be run from windows without having to make a floopydisk http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ also it could be a harddisk problem, looks to the Event Resigtration if there is anything unusual.

stop 8e is typically a hardware conflict.

First thing I would look at is any hardware changes you've recently made. This includes any USB connected hardware.
