Question about Computers & Internet
The stop is actually a OS error code abbreviated "Stop 0x8E "
In reality it is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
The most likely cause is caused by memory hardware failures and more rarely by device driver issues, viruses, or hardware failures other than your RAM.
Type the same as the quotation "Stop 0x8E" into Google - it will take you to the error code and give you the meaning.
It's not a computer processor error, at all, but a memory or driver error. Most likely a device which is trying to be used by the OS you are loading but can't load because the device needs a driver or the memory is loose (besides bad memory). Remove the memory and re-seat. Make sure not to touch the contacts with your hands. Take a pencil eraser and clean the contacts.
For a better answer, the next time give the OS version you attempting to load, and the hard drive you are using whether ATA or SATA. The more data the better. Now to test your memory --- download MEMTEST (find it on Google) it's FREE. And run Memtest on a Floppy disk or from a CD. Run the complete ALL tests, It will take many hours, but you can write down the errors (if any) and exchange your memory for new memory under the lifetime warranty that memory maker give. Good luck.
