Windows`Xp BSOD on Re Installing OS

By wiler.bob ·
My system has slowley been eroded with increasing frequency,as a consequence I have backed up all my critical data and began to re install from the origional Xp CD. However after the fies are loaded and I am about to delete the partitions I receive the BSOD error 0x0000008e. The system has been operating for several years with out problems, why am I now receving such errors could it be that some hardware is beginning to fail?

Either your hard drive could be going bad, or there's a config/driver problem with it.

Might be wise if the system is quite a bit older to get a new MB and/or disk.

Faulty IDE Data Leads that have caused a similar problem.

Though my first reaction would be Faulty or Mismatched RAM.
