When the laptop is booting up, or when the laptop has finished booting up, there will be a blue screen which will pop up invariably. Usually, I am able to use my laptop after rebooting twice.

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.

Technical information:

*** 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!

You could have " Haxfoor Virus " on board. please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

Did you install new hardware or software?
If so,a bad install could cause this stop code.

If this is the case...remove/uninstall which ever you think started the "series of errors",one at a time. And hopefully you will find the culprit.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
