Hey all,

I just blue screened about 5 minutes ago, and the error is a 0x8e error. I've read up a little bit on this error and I see it is possible the error is the product of a microsoft virus-- perhaps not truly an error, but a phantom error produced by the virus?

Anyways, I'm also wondering if theres any other way to fix this problem without the set-up disc??

Any recommendations or help to solving the problem would be greatly appreciated.

if you think you have malware...
Please go to the malware forum Start HERE....

That will help you clean up 80 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then start a new topic in the MALWARE FORUM forum here...

or try this
Bad computer memory is one of the three main reasons for random system failures.. the other two are heat (usually caused by fans or heatsinks being blocked with dust) or power issues...
first...unplug case from the wall...open it up and clean out all the dust bunnies...be sure to clean the cpu heatsink fins up real good.....guide is here..

then lets make sure its not your memory going bad...get memtest +
here....
the lowdown is here..

if you have a floppy drive you can get the 6th one down ...set the bios to boot from the floppy drive A:

first...then the cd drive then the Hard drive C:
or you can get the 2nd one down and burn the ISO file to a cd and then boot it from the cd drive...

if you don't have a burning program that will burn .ISO files go

here and get burncdcc ..a small FAST no frills iso

burning program...

NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its memtest86.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start

make sure in the bios the cd drive is the first boot device....put the cd in the cd drive..boot your computer....


let memtest run for at least 2 hours...if it starts showing any errors during that time then you will have

to replace the RAM...no errors after 2 hours just press Esc to end the tests and we will try some other

tests


go here and get everest home...install and

launch it...click the + by computer...click on sensor...get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and

voltages...

Ty for the leads. This is definately some info I've been looking for. It's not easy to solve a problem on my own without any idea where to start, so thank you.

Heya Happyrock,

Back with a few results. Memtest did not find any errors, and I have a screenshot from everest for ya.

I've also recently cleaned out the dust from inside the cpu, about a month ago. An extra cleaning couldn't hurt I suppose, if you think it would help =)


Oh, I just saw the way that screenshot looked and it's not very clear. Text results are as follows:

your temps and voltage are fine...if you cleaned it out a month back then don't bother...
BTW the screenshot is fine...you just have to click the + to puff it it up enough to read..
your next step should be a romp thru the malware forum....
BEFORE you go there click on overclock icon in everest and post a screenshot for me...
also go to control panel...administrative tools...event viewer....double click on both applications and system and see if you have any errors or warnings ....just the most recent will do...
