    hi all,

    I have a Toshiba satelite pro here thats not playing fair. when it boots up it blue screens on me im giving me this stop code 0x00008086 after a bit of google work am still none the wiser on how to fix this. I was going to save myself the hassle and just reinstall vista but when i boot from dvd it loads the files then the screen goes black but i can still see the cursor on screen :( anyone any ideas?
    thanks all in advance

    Try Running CHKDSK /R from within the XP Recovery Console to see if the hdd has any bad sectors

    Perhaps take one of the memory modules out and reboot?

    Could be just about anything unfortunately.

    Run a diagnostic on your hard drive, then check out updates and drivers.

    One of those sh1tty error codes that doesn't really tell you much...

    As said this can relate to quite a few problems do as suggest above.

    Also are you running SATA hard drive(s) if so check in the the BIOS to see if they are actually set as AHCI if it is set it to ATA or IDE and see if the problem goes away.

    when running memtest86 on the ram test on dimm at atime for atleast 7 passes each for accuracy purposes.

    hi guys a tried some of the above :) i have fixed the problem,

    just a few questions though , how do you run memtest without being able to boot ?

    the solution was to go to bios settings and changed the hdd settinhs from ahci to compatibility :) as bruce lee suggested
    cheers all
