Windows XP BSOD

I have Windows XP and I get the BSOD everyday. I googled some of the codes on the screen but I do not get anything solid.

Stop: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005,0x80522b9e,0xae543704,0x00000000)

and the other BSOD

Stop:0x00000050 (0xbb0090cc,0x00000001,0xbf802a90,0x00000002)

Ok....Dumps rotate between Memory Corruption, and a driver loaded by Iexplore.

Does it happen at random time? Are you doing the same thing each time? Different things?

UBCD has Memtest on it.... Let it run for about an hour or two...

Ultimate Boot CD - Overview

I would even double check the HDD with the Manufacturer's util on the UBCD as well....

Lets see if the Memtest passes, and go from there.....


These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).


Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

Try to isolate problem, test between every step
Try to upgrade all drivers.
Remove any unnecessary hardware
If you have two RAM sticks remove one, test, then remove other
If you have some spare hardware, also try to replace graphic card

If you can provide a DMP file, either C:\windows\memory.dmp or a file from C:\windows\minidump, we can take a look.

Ok great. I just order new memory since it was cheap and I have limited amount of time to fool around.

I think it does happen around the time the person uses IE each time but not 100% sure. What driver is it or what can I do to try and fix it?

Unfortunately, I dont use Windbg in that extreme to get that deep in this instance. Possbly an IE driver, like http.sys or similar...

Can try an uninstall/reinstall of IE, or an app like IEFix

If IE6....

IEFix Utility - Description

But I doubt this will solve the problem...... I would wait to see how the RAM does.....

The dumps clearly show memory corruption, so I think leaving some RAM out or testing with memtest as suggested above would be the best route.

Ok I just ordered new memory so I will advise after I install the new memory this weekend.
