POST problems or XP Stop 0x8E

Packard Bell 3 year old computer running MSI N1996 mobo. Intermittent problem with POST. When faulty 1 long beep and 2 short beeps. No screen display at all. Tried taking one memory card out at a time to see if one was faulty, but all seems okay. Points ot nvidia PCI-Ext graphics or power supply? Note, when XP boots and left on logon screen, after a while it crashed a couple of times to BSDO 0X8E error. Also wehen playing Warcraft game, machine freezes. Have played these games before.

    The steps I would take next are run tests on your memory and graphics card. If they do not pass the tests it could still be a motherboard problem, but worth replacing the parts that failed to be sure.

The beeps actually refer to memory not just RAM, it could be the memory on your graphics card or the cache ram on your processor. Or it could be a compatibility issue between memory sticks.

Hi my Packard Bell imedia 5640 will not start up, it will not load up the windows xp programme, it goes to a blank monitor screen. It is still running though.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard



if you need more help with this post a reply
hope this helps

Packard bell l4 beeps on start up for about 5 sec then works ok would this be memory prob


When your computer starts up it runs a series of test called the POST (Power On Self Test). When test is complete it beeps to let you know if the hardware is OK or if there is a problem. One beep means the hardware passed the test with no problems. If your getting more than one beep you'll have to check with your manufacture to find out what it means. Go to their web site and search "POST error codes", this should give you the information you need.

Packard Bell IMedia 5055: GA-8SIML will not post or boot. Removed all PCI cards,RAM,Hard drive, optical drives etc. Only CPU and mobo but no post/BIOS screen. CPU fan runs and front panel LEDs work. Do get...


Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.

POST problems or XP Stop 0x8E


run memtest 86, test each ram stick, if it shows both as bat, then your mobo;'s memory controller is bad. if neither is bad, then it is your graphix card
