STOP 0x0000008E error message on a blue screen and your computer does not enter hibernation or standby after you remove an IEEE 1394 storage device


You may experience one or more of the following issues after you remove an IEEE 1394 storage device, such as a CD-ROM or external disk drive, from your Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based computer:
  • When you put your computer into hibernation, you may receive a Stop error message similar to the following on a blue screen.
    *** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC00000005, 0x804EF844, 0xF89463FC,0x00000000)
  • When you put your computer into standby, the monitor turns off as expected, however the computer does not enter standby. The power indicator on your computer indicates that the computer is not on standby.

  • The hotfix that is documented in

    is installed on your computer.

  • You remove the IEEE 1394 storage device from your computer by using the Safely Remove Hardware feature (in the notification are of the taskbar, double-click the Safely Remove Hardware icon), and then put your computer into hibernation or on standby.

    Note The IEEE 1394 storage device is removed in Windows XP but the device is still physically connected to your computer.
  • Your application does a software disconnect of the IEEE 1394 storage device, and then you put your computer in hibernation or on standby, or the system goes on standby automatically.
