See if this addresses the problem you are experiencing:
"Stop 0x0000008E" error message in Win32k.sys when you use the keyboard to access a program menu in Windows XP

Yes it does tend to happen in cases like that, but some times it will blue screen just when on the internet, or when im not even doing anything...but I do not know if the error message is differnet in these other cases.

Stop messages that contain 0x0000008E (0x8E for short) can have many causes, but the most common cause is bad RAM.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If your computer has two sticks of RAM in it, then remove one and see if the problems persist. If they do, switch pieces and test again.

ALTERNATIVE
You can run the memory tester from Microsoft. It is free and available for download HERE.

Yes, I have 2 sticks of memory...I tried switching them to see if the problem persist, but all it did was blue screen before I could get to windows. I could not figure out how to get the memory tester working if you could help me out on that. Thank you!

So, things have gotten worse? I thought you could boot the computer, but now you cannot without getting a blue screen?

Remove one stick of RAM and see if it will boot. If not, switch sticks and try again. Report back.
