    Question Blue Screen Error with iTunes install HELP ME!!

    Advertisement



    I downloaded an update for iTunes and I went to install it and part way through the install my computer just shuts off and a blue screen comes up about my BIOS Memory and what not and this is the warning STOP: 0x0000008E. I have tried over and over and I even removed iTunes and Quicktime all together and then started over and it still does it so I change disks and put it to my C instead of my D and it still does it sometimes it just restarts my computer with out a blue screen. I have not a clue what to do and I am hoping that someone on here will be able to help me its killing me without my iTunes.

    looks like it may be a SP2 issue, or lack there of.

    Are ya using the latest version of iTunes? There was a compatibility issue a while back (With Vista) but its since been fixed in newer version.

    Or, get a Mac..

    Here's a fix for your blue-screen-of-death:

    Remove the VGA cable from your computer.
    WIth a set of small wire cutters, clip out the middle pin on the top row.
    Re-attach VGA cable.

    Look: Now more blue screen! Now it is the grey-screen of death!

    Note: don't try this at home. We are professionals.

    iTunes isn't an overpriced MP3 player. Its free software.

    way to state the obvious.

    but you have to use itunes for an ipod. and a ipod is a overpriced mp3 player. so therefore since i didn't waste money on a ipod and instead bought a better mp3 player for less money i'm not stuck with that awful program. get it?

    you don't have to use iTunes for an iPod - there are alternatives.
