Stop: 0x0000008E & win32k.sys Error and SOLUTION (maby) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problem Solution

    This problem has been identified as a problem with ATI Catalyst Controll Center 7.3, there are two solutions, one being a hot fix:







    I have upgraded from Windows XP Media Center (which was very stable, no blue screens) to Windows Vista Home Premium and I am getting the BlueScreen error during Windows boot just before the desktop is displayed.
    I have to boot in safe mode,  windows automatically trys to find a solution then I restart normally.  Then Windows says it has blocked start up program "system configuration utility".  Doing this seems to let me start normally.  Then next time I start the computer it crashes again.  Problem not fixed.


    What can I do about this, are there any solutions?

    Why does it work after I re-boot in safe mode then restart in normal mode?

    What is win32k.sys?

    Should I disable something?

    Any diagnosis software i should be running?

    Hi! I have a Presario SR model and I got the same message (0x0000008e), I ran the Extended Test for the harddrive (on boot press F10, select advance) and the harddrive tested fine.  I increased the memory to 2gb (from 1gb) and did the recovery installation and the computer works. Apparently one or both of the RAMs was/were bad.  Give it a try. Thanks!

  • It just goes to bluescreen once a month without warning when turn on from standby.
