The "STOP 0x0000008e" error is frequently an issue with the RAM, or the way the RAM is being recognized on the motherboard. :
The "irql_not_less_or_equal" is also normally a hardware issue, or possibly a hardware driver.:
In your case, I'd start by removing the RAM modules from their slots and place ONLY ONE in the number one slot.. See if the computer boots correctly.. If it doesn't try the other module in the same slot. If that doesn't work, try the modules in a different slot.
If you've installed new RAM or new hardware drivers lately, you might consider going back to when things worked correctly.
Hope this helps.
My computer keeps crashing to the blue screen of death almost every time i try to boot up. Sometimes I get lucky and Windows starts normally and I can actually get into my user account, other times it crashes while booting up, and other times it crashes immediately or shortly after I log on to my user account.
Here are the BSOD's and screens I encountered a short while ago while I was trying to get my PC to run.
Here is some info about my system, not sure what info is useful, so please ask for any extra info if needed.
Dell Dimension 4700
BIOS Revision A05
Intel(R) Premium(R) 4 CPU 2.80 GHz
504 MB RAM
Any help is extremely appreciated, I really need to get my PC running properly for school work.
