Hello,

In order to pinpoint the issue, I must know the ten caracter code beginning with 0x that you see on the blue screen.

Regards

STOP: 0x0000008E ( 0x00000005 , 0xBA70249D, 0xB922B72C, 0x00000000 )

Dear Rahul,

There are several possibilities to the error code 0x0000008E. I will give you the two most probable for the moment. Please check if one of the following applies to you and take the appropriate action:

1. The file "catrrot2" was not deleted during installation. You must delete it manually. When the error message appears again press capitals and F10 and enter the following command:

cd \windows\system32 et rename catrrot2 catold.

2. One of your Ram stick is damaged and it must be replaced

Good luck and let me know
