I encountered the BSOD on Monday while I was browsing on the internet and have been scrambling to find a solution for it. I'm typing this on another computer by the way.
The computer affected is actually my older notebook. It's a Toshiba Satellite and it's about 3 and half years old now. It's old but it still runs pretty smoothly until a couple days ago.
I was randomly browsing on the internet and suddenly the BSOD appeared so I manually restarted it and didn't bother to copy down the technical error message because I didn't think I was going to see it again.
After the Windows load screen finished and I logined with my password, Windows would load all the icons on the taskbar and desktop and then the BSOD appears again!
I copied the error screen this time. Here's what it reads...
0x0000008E 0xC0000005 0x8054B585, 0xB32E1BF4, 0x000000000
I google this and it lead to a couple discussions on a couple other forums so I tried rebooting into Safemode but I get the BSOD before I can even reach the login screen. Only Safemode with Command Prompt worked and I was able to successful perform a CHKDSK but that didn't fix it.
I also have not installed or uninstalled any new programs or drivers so this is a bit out of left field for me.
p.s: I have my recovery disks that came with the Laptop but don't have the Windows XP CD. It wasn't included with the Laptop.
Please help me.
