Ok.
I'm very frustrated.
I spent HOURS on trying to solve the following problem and nothing has worked or even helped.
I'm in desperate need of help because I need to use my computer!

Everything I read just assumes you can log onto Windows. It won't even let me into Safe Mode of any kind or even Last Good Configuration!

The BSoD just keeps coming up.
I have Windows XP.
I don't know if this helps but it's a DELL Demension 3000.

The stop code error is:
0x0000008E
It also says something about win32k.sys


By the way:
I'm not too tech-savvy.

Thanks y'all.
I appreciate ANY help.

If you have the Windows startup CD try running the Recovery Console.

Note: You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order to be able to boot from the Windows installation disk.

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:

1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the]Recovery Console.

4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
.
6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

While in the Recovery Console (as mentioned above) I'd run the FIXMBR and FIXBOOT commands at a minimum.

Then, since you can't boot into Windows, I'd suggest running a bootable memory tester (here's a free one: http://www.memtest86.com/ ) and a bootable hard drive diagnostic utility. Here's a list of the most common one's: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
