STOP: 0x000000008E (0xC0000005 0x87D40F3D 0x8D1738EC 0x0000000000) and STOP: 0x000000F4 (there were an extra 4 codes included with this one as in the first, however for some reason i had a lapse in judgment and did not write them down.)
The BSOD informed me that i should try and turn of Memory Caching and Shadowing, I went into the BIOS and I could not find a setting even remotely similar to the two described, so I left all the settings unchanged.
I have tried both running a windows memory test and memtest (which i got through a USB drive that i made into a bootable drive for Ubuntu)
Both of those failed to finish, with the computer shutting down during the middle.
I have tried to start into safe mode and was unsuccessful; also i was not able to get to the login screen even when using the last-known configuration option.
In an effort to even make the computer usable, I tried both running and installing ubuntu on the machine both of which failed during the middle of the process. This lends me to believe that it is a hardware problem, and maybe not necessarily a software issue.
I am completely stumped at what to try next, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
EDIT: This morning I tried running another start-up repair. And got a message saying start-up repair cannot automatically fix the problem. And these are the problem details:
Problem Signature 01:AutoFailure
Problem Signature 02:6.0.6000.163184.108.40.20600.16386
Problem Signature 03:6
Problem Signature 04:196611
Problem Signature 05:CprruptVolume
Problem Signature 06:NoRootCause
Problem Signature 07:0
Problem Signature 08:2
Problem Signature 09:WrpRepair
Problem Signature 10:1392
Locale ID: 1033
Also I tried doing a system restore (which I had tried previously before the problem had gotten so bad), and it told me that there were no restore points created, which I know is false because it was set-up to routinely create restore points. Hopefully this extra information will help.
