The last week my pc started to reboot randomly. I disabled the automatic restart in winxp and now i get the blue screen. this happens at least once a day when i keep the computer open for long period of time.
The error message has this technical info:
0x0000008E (0xC0000005,0X8054AE34,0XF39409F0,0X000000)

Can someone help?

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

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.

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

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

Thank you. I just run the memory test and it passed all 6 tests.

I just looked at the event viewer and i saw this error at the same time of the reboot.

The name "WORKGROUP :1d" could not be registered on the Interface with IP address The machine with the IP address did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine.
