A friend of mine gave me a DELL 1501 w/XP SP3 . After XP loads up, it
crashes (BSOD). It gives some error codes as follows: STOP: 0x0000008E
(0xC0000005, 0xEE6D721D, 0xEB1827E8, 0x00000000). I used a LINUX OS
disc to retrieve all pics, docs, ect. I ran chkdsk, but it doesn't complete, giving me more errors. I also ran DELL's own HDD check program. It says that the HDD is okay. Since XP won't stay on for more than a minute or two, I can't try to troubleshoot any further. Does anyone have any ideas or solutions?
Any input would be appreciated.
