I have a severe problem with the 0x0000008E
...I put in the Vista disc and push the key to boot from the disc, but after selecting my language and clicking install it just crashes again and brings me back to the blue screen of death...
So now thinking its the powersupply I went and got a new PSU, from a Hiper 500w to a Hiper 630w. Hope that does something good!
That is NOT what that program is for.
MOST of the entries are valid, you must know which ones are invalid.
DO NOT TAKE THIS PARTICULAR ADVICE
Thank you for your comment, but you are unfortunately incorrect.
I ran Memtest86 : OK,
I ran HighjackThis : 8 suspect register entries and 2 suspect extras, which were fixed.
The 2 following sites helped in indetifying those entries:
I stopped at that step of the curing process, as the issue proved to be solved.
The problem encountered was a reboot when attempting to login as admin or regular user on an AMD PC running XP Pro SP3.
Unfortunately, BSOD occurred again after 5 days of normal run.
I ran HighjackThis again : OK
I ran SmitfraudFix : some suspect entries that were fixed (after Register backup)
I ran CCleaner and fixed incorrect entries
Still erratic BSOD.
BSOD indicated faulty portcls.sys : even if this is not the only possible cause, I disabled Onboard Sound in BIOS yesterday.
So far, the PC run OK.
PC configuration is:
GA-MA790FXT UD5P mb
Phenom II x4 955, no oc
2x1Gb DDR3 12800 OCZ Platinum
HDD WD RE3 250Gb
Next step: I'll update Sound drivers (new version 2009/07/09)
Some useful stuff there:
I upgraded Realtek driver for onboard audio from Gigabyte support page (http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=3005&ost=xp#anchor_os) and then re-enabled onboard audio.
The PC runs OK and sound is OK too.
So, for GA-MA790FXT UD5P owners encountering BSOD at login (XP SP3), I recommend the upgrade of Realtek driver, in the case onboard sound is enabled.
Thanks for the valuable information I found here.
I am unable to run any repair or recovery, and am unable to enter in safe mode.
I decided to just abandon my files, and reformat the computer but that will not even run. I put in the Vista disc and push the key to boot from the disc, but after selecting my language and clicking install it just crashes again and brings me back to the blue screen of death.
Vista is my operating system and all the guides seem to be for XP, or they ask you to do things to fix the computer, and I am unable to do anything, even reformat. What can I do? Thanks.
Sounds to me like you have bad ram, use another computer and burn a copy of memtest 86+
Boot it on the defective computer and see if your ram is bad.
I'd first attempt manually getting rid of start up items through something like UBCD4Windows or Vista PE.
I didn't see virus scans mentioned either, this should be one of the first steps in the elimination of any error like this, as you don't need to boot into windows (its in fact more effective outside of windows) to perform these...
If you can find a way to run chkdsk, or sfcscan they could also prove helpful.
Just some ideas
0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x82885cc0, 0xa9093b14, 0x00000000)
And so after about a month with that, I rebooted my OS System from manufactor date. The reboot worked for about a day, and now the issue is back. I can't do streaming sites like YouTube or anything. And it's really becoming troubling to me because I could be working on something in Photoshop, etc. and it'll cause me to lose all my work.
I looked up the # and it told me it was memory/RAM. Is this the issue or not?
I run a Windows Vista. And this issue has been happening for over a year. =/ It's a more complicated story than what I've posted.
