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)
win32k.sys - address BF802a90 base at BF800000, date stamp 48025f2a.

Thanks

0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

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

0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

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.

You can upload it to www.ee-stuff.com

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...

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.....

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?

Thanks

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
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFIX.htm

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.
