    It happened again, just then.

    Again with the empty BSOD.

    It's a 1000008e error apparently.

    I'm going to try taking out one of the RAM sticks and seeing if it is the RAM again, although it already passed memtest.

    Does anybody know what it could be?

    Would posting some minidumps help anybody?

    If so, how do I go around doing that?

    You would have to highlight to copy and paste the information seen in notepad and save as a file until ready to post that here. But you besides updating video and sound drivers along with seeing if there is a newer biod update to see your hardwares updated enirely since incompatibility problems are the most likely explaination here you will want to review this MS info on memory since you may have something to look at there.

    SYMPTOMS

    loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms');When you install Microsoft Windows XP, you may receive a Stop Error message that is similar to one of the following while the Setup program is running: STOP 0x0000008e
    STOP 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA
    Additionally, if you troubleshoot by removing all unnecessary hardware devices that are installed on the computer, and then you run the Setup program, you may receive an error message that is similar to the following: Setup cannot copy the file Setupdd.sys.

    CAUSE

    loadTOCNode(1, 'cause');This behavior may occur if one of the following conditions is true: •One or more of the random access memory (RAM) modules that are installed on your computer are faulty.•The RAM configuration is incompatible with Windows XP.[​IMG]Back to the top

    The recommended solution seen for this at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q315335 is as seen here.

    RESOLUTION

    loadTOCNode(1, 'resolution');To troubleshoot this behavior, follow these steps: 1.Remove some of the memory modules that are installed on the computer. Leave at least the RAM that is required for the computer to start and run Windows XP.

    The recommended RAM to run Windows XP is 128 megabytes (MB). The minimum is 64 MB, and the maximum is 4 gigabytes.

    For example, if two 256-MB memory modules are installed on your computer, remove one of the memory modules.2.Restart your computer, and then run the Setup program: a. Insert the Windows XP Setup CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive, start the computer, and then click OK to select the first option screen to install a copy of Windows XP. b. Click Accept, and then follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP installation.3.If you again receive the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section, go to step 4.4.Remove a different memory module, or install the RAM in a different memory slot.5.Restart your computer, and then rerun Setup.

    You may have to restart your computer several times to identify the specific memory modules that are not working correctly.[​IMG]Back to the top

    The error you are seeing there is one more thing to look at and most likely one more step to the solution.

    I'll update the BIOS later and I'll try putting the RAM in single channel instead of dual.

    If the bios programming was seeing a need due to information loss swapping from dual to single channel mode would be a waste of time. You want to keep things the way they are now in order to find just where or what the problems are. The fresh update of the bios especially if newer may fix some problem you wouldn't think of or simply fill in the gaps?
