RAM Memory Modules Faulty


One or more of your system's RAM memory modules is faulty and get error message : During a WinXP installation, you get one of the following error messages: “STOP: 0x0000008e” or “STOP: 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA”

To resolve problem, remove a memory module and restart the setup process. If the error reappears, replace the memory module you just removed, remove a different memory module, and restart the setup process again. Continue using this procedure until you isolate the specific memory module that is causing the error message

Keep in mind that WinXP needs at least 128MB of RAM to run properly. If you have 128MB or less of total system RAM, this is a good opportunity to upgrade your system memory to 256MB or 512MB. The more memory you have when running WinXP, the better 512MB is probably the optimum amount of memory you’ll need to run WinXP and all your other applications efficiently
