XP Home Edition crashes while in standby - blue screen error
If PC goes to sleep, system either does not come up or tells me there is a OS crash. If there are apps running while PC goes into standby, those apps also crash. PC provides recommendations for system restore or driver removal (no id on which one). I have done a system restore back 5 months to when (I believe) it did not occur, but no luck.
Today's crash indicated (copying from PC report)
1) STOP 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xDF85CD17, 0xee5CCB18, 0x00000000 2) win32k.sys Address BF85CD17 base at BF800000 DateStamp 48ce513a
Other clues: Have Spybot installed. Removed previously, but added back during system restore exercise when it was installed at that time. Also installed a physical buttom auto-sleep mode device but deinstalled when crashed. Thought this was the problem so did system restore way before this and before any problems with Spybot.

Sounds like a bad file . I would consider reinstalling windows. When it starts up, for a new install, it will find your existing OS and ask it you want it repaired, say yes then it wil repair it and leave al you data as is.

A C0000005 Error is a Windows System error, not a VFP Error. It is
an Exception Error that occurs when a process (application, driver,
etc.) tries to execute a processor command that references memory
outside the space allocated to that process by the Operating System.
There are many possible causes ranging from corrupt data tables, to
a bad network connection, ActiveX controls, or Printer or Video driver
errors. Without knowing what type of error you are seeing, it is
impossible to guess what the cause may be. ~ Vladmir
Fine..You have reached the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD)..common in Windows Operating Systems. Generally this must be a hardware problem. If parts liek RAM or bad sectors in Harddisk, such BSoD comes, indicating the crash of the OS. Try repairing XP using the cd. If not, go for a format so that the bad sectors in the Hard disk is repaired.
You can request a copy from microsoft but they will charge you. Do you have a recovery CD came with your PC? if not the best way is to ask your friends for the CD but use your own product key, it should be on the label on the computer. Good Luck :)
if your os often corrupted means it can be due to a virus......because 50% of the xp crashes will be occuring due to virus......i am computer engineer.....and i have handled these crashes many times....thats why i am telling.....otherwise the problem will be in motherboard.....but if motherboard is new....the chances that caused crashes by motherboard will be very less or nil.....so i better suggest you to scan your computer with a good anitivirus.....because if virus exists the chances of crashing will be high.....the best antivirus i suggest you to usekaspersky internet secuity 7.0......as it detection rate is higher than any other antivirus......if your problem still persists i suggest you to call software engineer to solve the problem....because by seeing the your computer only one can know the exact problem....thats why....
If your internet connection works try activating it online. If not you will have to call Microshaft and give them the number generated by the 'phone option' if the internet activation will not work.
Call this number to get your system activated.
Just tell them you had to reinstall and you have no major upgrades and you have only installed XP on one system and they should give you a number to plug in so your OS will be activated and good to go.
