Hello, My computer shut down and gave error message *** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005,0x8056C031,0xB733FAF4,0x00000000) and then when I restarted it, it gave the same message but with 0xB76B7AF4 instead of the B733FAF4 part.
I went into safe mode and tried to do a system restore and it just keeps giving me this error message. Please help

I already have service pack 3. And after I do the system restore, it tells me it has been successfully restored and yet it keeps shutting down and giving the same error message except that each time the 3rd section of the error message is slightly different: ie 0xB7677AF4 or 0xB76B7AF4 or 0xB733FAF4.

It won't stay on long enough for me to install anything.

Hello,

Currently we are having the same issues.... Suddenly multiple machines on our network have BSOD. However, our Stop errors are slightly diffrent* 0x0000008E (0xc0000005, 0x8056c031, 0xA7A5BAF4, 0x00000000)*

At this point we are unable to resolve the issues at hand.

Our minidumps have also been different. Our first minidump showed M_Agent.exe to be our issue. However, after hidding the diectory in safemode and rebooting it now has came up with a different BSOD which states our system is the culprit. Both dumps have included ntoskrnl.exe as the image.

Here is the first minidump:____________________

KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.
Arguments:
Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: 8056c031, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: a7cb7af4, Trap Frame

If anyone can spot somethng or have any ideas please let us know!

I think we actually narrowed this problem down.

It seems Microsoft, and our Meraki Agent is responsible for all of this commotion. Microsoft is releasing a patch now for it. We've had to actually delete the entire Meraki directory in safe mode, and stop AD from pushing it out to the PC's on start up. After removing the directory we then started Microsoft updates to receive the patch. For some reason it was causing the system to crash. So far this has fixed the issue on all machines. I guess for now our problem is handled.

@UniKat53

if you know a little dos, you can use cmd via Recovery console, from the xp cd.
boot from cd, press r, type instalation number, password(or just press enter)
First you could run a chkdisk, just in case.
Plan a: Usually 8E errors are related to Ntoskrnl. You might have a backup somwhere on your hard of ntoskrnl.exe (service pack folder, dllcache,etc) . Backup the original(rename its extension) and copy the one U found to system 32.

Plan b: This is kind of a system recovery, from dos:
Using recovery console, go to the System32\Config folder and backup(rename the extension) of the
System,Software, etc files in there. (to see all files use a dir command)
Copy from the repair folder , the System,Software,etc files to to System32\Config folder .
Eg.
copy C:\Windows\Repair\system C:\windows\System 32\Config
or give it a "*.*" command to copy all files at once.

Plan C: Do a repair install, even if I don't like it, sometimes it's the last thing U could do.

for more details write, and I'll write back.

I am getting this error 2 and have 5 computer down within my network. When i googled Meraki Agent , it appears to be some type of networking hardware equipment. Am I right?

What does this have to do with why my computers are not booting.

How this issue been resolved from anyone?
July 12, 2012 6:04:29 PM

The meraki agent i spoke of is a networking tool yes!.........

However, i believe it may be specific to our circumstance. I believe the new windows updates are what spawned everyone problems. I'm sure if you read your minidump files you will see a specific program that is causing the system to crash. It seems to all fall back to ntoskrnl.exe. The easiest fix that seemed to work for us was to disable the program that was causing the crash(meraki) in windows safe mode with networking. That is also how i received the Minidump file, i copied it to a network drive where i could access it to be read.

"CUSTOMER_CRASH_COUNT: 4

DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: COMMON_SYSTEM_FAULT

BUGCHECK_STR: 0x8E

PROCESS_NAME: m_agent_service

LAST_CONTROL_TRANSFER: from 8056d073 to 8056c031"

This section here is where i realized M_agent is what triggered a crash in the system. Once it was disabled ( you can't uninstall from safe mode- either delete directory or hide it with a rename * example c:\windows\fonts.... c:\windows\!fonts, the ! tells windows to not pay attention to this when loading. However, i found it to still be loading in a temp file which is the reason i deleted the whole directory) it booted into windows allowing me to go to windows updates and correct the actual issue.

So my friends the fix is making sure you are fully up to date with windows update. The problem might be finding a way to get enough time to to log in and actually install the updates!!!!



Forgive my punctuation and grammar it has been a very long day! This problem alone took up around 4 hours this a.m.
