BSOD STOP 0x0000008E error

I have win xp pro, sp2.

3 BSODs today:

Got this message: STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC000008E, 0X0071877a, 0XF967BD30, 0X00000000). First time.

Also got: STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC000008E, 0X0071877a, 0XF933FB5C, 0X00000000). 2nd time.

Also got: STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC000008E, 0X0071877a, 0XF421CB5C, 0X00000000). 3rd time.

I defraged hard drive. Reboots ok. IE6 opens, home page ok. VERY slow in going to when I enter it in the address line.

I installed an Adobe update just before all of this started happening. Took it out of the Startup tab in MSCONFIG. Still has crashes.

Any idea what the error codes mean? What is the solution?

Below is the error message that came with all 3 of the hex dumps:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable any BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

XXX STOP: 0X0000008E
[Then follow the 3 hex error messages above.]

Beginning dump of physical memory.
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

I have plenty of hard drive space, about 60 GB of free space.
There was no driver identified in any of the error messages.
I have a Dell Dimension 8250 desktop.
Does anyone know what the hex codes mean?

How long is it since you cleaned out your tower for dust bunnies?

Browse this link to maybe correct your issue which is pointing towards faulty RAM.

Do you have a daily|weekly maintenance program for your system? If not, browse the one in my signature 'learning each day'.
IE6 opens, home page ok. VERY slow in going to when I enter it in the address line.
IE 6.0 is years old, your system is very vulnerable, please update your browser to IE 8.0 | CometBird | or Firefox.

Before you do any of the above suggestions, run CCleaner.exe - Do not run the registry options as I do not recommend it.

Keep us posted after you have read and implemented some of the above suggestions .....thanks

kind regards,
