Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

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.

Looking for how to fix this nuisance.

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.

Hello I have an acer aspire 5535 and it keeps


The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.

A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4




Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore.
This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!

Blue screen on dell svc tag:GSKTL1S.Ox000000ED,0x8734D9EO,0xC0000006 how to fix this error?


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.

Thank you!

Installation problems SamSung ML 2510 printer with Windows XP


Why no updates? No windows validation? That could be your problem if that's the case.
If not, I suggest going to Windows update and at least installing all critical updates, if not SP3 as well, and try again

I have a CyberPower Gamer Ultra 6230 Desktop PC


Windows systems are notorious for crashing for any number of reasons and in a number of ways. Some of these crashes are mild and can easily be overcome simply by closing a nonresponding application or by rebooting the system. However, others are more serious and can bring the entire system to its knees. Microsoft calls these types of crashes "Stop errors" because the operating system stops responding. When a Stop error occurs, the GUI is replaced by a DOS-like blue screen with a cryptic error message followed by a code number. This screen is affectionately referred to as the Blue Screen Of Death.
what i mean, try to reformat in zero level of your HDD and install OS...

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.
