As the title states, I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop (If you need exact model, lmk)

that I found in an old box and could actually use an extra laptop around for schooling. 

I get a blue screen off boot up as soon as windows begins to load (even before password input)

The error code is 0x0000008e and I have tried most remedies.

Last Known Good Config - dies

reset to older date - dies

Memtest - clean


I feel that the motherboard is either fried or a deep issue is happening.


If I can find the OS cds, would a reformat/install be the best way to go?

What do you mean by reset to older date? you mean System Restore? 




1. Try to choose the earliest date on the system restore and  see if it works. 


2. Try to do a start-up repair on the windows cd first before you try to format.


it could also be your Cpu, you may need to replace it and try it first before doing anything with the motherboard.


Also if you can get into safe mode, try to uninstall/update all of your drivers in Device Manager by doing this.


1. As soon as your pc starts up hit f8 till if gives you options to go into SAFE MODE.


2. Click Start- Right click Computer- Properties- on the left click Device manager. Then go through each driver and right click on it and hit uninstall and it will re install them self.

Download memtest (http://memtest.org/). Burn it to a cd using a dedicated .iso burning utility (http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm), make sure the cd drive is at the top of the boot order in bios, then boot to the newly created cd and run the utility.
