First BSOD in XP after some new hardware installs.
I've had my new computer for about a month now without even a hiccup from XP. Early this evening (3 hours ago) I install and additional 256MB of DDR RAM (kingston) and a RADEON 8500 video card. I followed very cautious procedures in uprgrading the video card as well. In addition, I upgraded the drivers to the most recent OFFICIAL ones from ATI.
After about 2.5 hours after getting everything going I get a BSOD. After the ONE incident it hasn't occurred in over an hour. Anyways, it stated something like this:
This is the only thing that I can find on STOP: 0x0000008E errors messages in the MS Knowledge Base related to WinXP. Information about STOP messages from Microsoft in regards to WinXP is still very limited at this time. Unfortunately.
