However, I realised the blue screen can reappear for as many as 3 times, each with a different message.
The beginning of the message is as follows:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows update you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP:0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80535AE3, 0xA987CB8C, 0x00000000)
There are other occasions when it is a different number.
STOP:0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80535AE3, 0xA88F1B8C, 0x00000000)
STOP:0X0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80535AE3, 0xA4D6CB8C, 0x00000000)
I got these numbers when I had to keep rebooting and consecutively had these blue screen errors.
I've been wondering what were the new programs I installed which triggered off these errors, but I really, for the life of me, cannot remember which were the ones which first started the series of errors!
