Well, a few minutes after I posted this, I got a different blue screen that did not have an error message but had a stop code code of 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000000, 0xA8101E24, 0x00000000), and after it did its memory dump and restart I got another blue screen after the XP loading screen. It was like the other one, in that it didn't have an error message but it had different stop codes of 0x0000007F (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).
After that one did its memory dump/restart it came up with the "windows could not start" screen with a safe mode prompt, I decided to just start Windows normally and it seemed to work, immediately ran a virus check with avast! and it said it found a trojan-gen win32 (other) or something. I've also done some research on those BSOD's, and now I'm worried it's either a virus or hardware failure...
Can anyone help?
