It would help if you said what computer model you have and indicate what the  "blue message" says.

 keep getting this error that says:

 

Check your hardware vender for any BIOS updates such as catching and shadowing if you need to use safe mode to disable these components, restart you computer, press f8 to select advanced setup options, and then select safe mode

 

technical info:

***STOP:0x0000008E *** ialmdd5.d11-adress BF1139f8 base at BF075000 datestamp 42dd477f

 

whats wrong, how do i fix it?

You still didn't say what computer model you have.  I have not seen any options for caching and shadowing on any of my Dells, so you might not have any such option.

 

I did a quick search of that error code and it seems that several of the problems were the motherboard.

 

I would reseat all the RAM, cards and cables.  That is generally a good way to start with problems like this.

 

Then I would run the extended Dell diagnostics (F12 at boot or boot the resource CD).

Just pull it out and put it back in. Pull the power cord first and ground yourself (touch the metal case momentarily).  Make sure you push it all the way back in.

There are no shadowing or caching options for that machine, at least that I can find.
