Default Dell C521 BSoD Help

My friend that has been in the market for a new computer has a BSoD problem. He had 3 Computers, one was screwed and has a Orange light when you hit the start up button. The other one turns of but doesn't get to the log on screen. It hits a BSoD before it gets anywhere near the log on screen. Safe mode doesn't work.
The BSoD error is: 0x0000008E

I did a little bit of research and found it might be a Ram problem. What other things can I do to fix the computer. He has no idea where the operating system CD is so he's screwed that way. I created a memory testing Boot CD. What else can I do in this situation.

Thanks,
Need WoW Now

Guess no one likes BSoD's. Seems like it huh?

The one with the orange light is most likely MOBO problem. Try switching out some RAM. Run with 1 good stick and see what happens.
