Fresh install of Windows XP Pro SP2, then updated through Windows Update.

Installed Digsby, Steam + Counterstrike 1.6, Firefox, WMP11.

Did a couple of tweaks through this site:


Action: Adjust Visual Effects (Level 1&2)
Action: Disable Error Reporting *All Levels
Action: Turn Off Remote Assistance Levels 3 & 4 only
Action: Turn Off Indexing *All Levels [After unchecking the box and it started to un-index the files, I stopped it 10 seconds in]

Now after going into standby, it gives me a BSOD and going into shutdown restarts the computer.
I can't seem to upload the picture of it, but I'll type out what it says:

Error Signature
BCCode: 1000008e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2: B16163B8 BCP3: BA1470AC
BCP4: 00000000 OSVer: 5_1_2600 SP: 3_0 Product 256_1

"The following files will be included in this error report:"

EDIT: Posted Image

Now that I'm looking at this topic [http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic146857.html], I think it could be due to my AMD C2D processor. However, it's a Dell.

Inspiron 1501, AMD based laptop with Vista Home originally installed.

Since your "tweaks" seem to be the cause of the STOP error message...why not reverse them to where the system functioned well?

My friend helped me fix it.

It was the 0x000000E8 stop error.
