I've formated and reinstalled Win XP Pro recently but i keep getting a stop:0x0000008E error.
This is not the only problem though. Sometimes Internet Explore freezes up, i can't open some folders and the system is quite unstable even in a clean installation. Maybe it's bad ram or a faulty hard disk. Any other ideas of what causes this stupid BSOD?
Thanks

Ordinary applications can't crash the system like that. It's either the operating system or a driver, I think, but from the sound of it, your hardware is borked and is probably flipping random bits causing crashes.

New computer/warranty time I think.

My computer went belly up back in December, first with trouble opening programs and then it would only give me a stop error. I think the number was 0x0000008, which is just yours without the e.

It turned out to be bad ram. You may want to check that.

BSOD is very nearly always hardware, and if it's randomly, then I'd go with the above suggestion and say that it's RAM.

I did have an antivirus program cause system errors and then a BSOD once though, 2 years ago.

During the installation process i get a ini910.sys BSOD on top of the stop:0x0000008E error.
The XP installation cd is full of scratches. Can this be the reason for the BSOD error?
I hope that the problem lies in faulty ram, and it is not a mobo or CPU related error!

Chances are its RAM, but it's also nearly as likely to be Motherboard. I see this error a lot while working on customers computers... and it's usually RAM or Mobo... I've also seen this from bad hard drives, and once a video card was causing it.

CPUs rarely fail... I've seen less than 10 faulty CPUs in the last 13 years.
