Hello, my computer has run fine for a while now but recently started getting blue screens after 30 or so minutes of running even nothing. And when I play games like Call of Duty 5 (which I have played with no problems until now) it blue screens in 5 or so minutes. The blue screen error message is :

0X0000008E (0XC0000005 0X80576978 0X903AF234 0X00000000)

Please help, thanks!

This problem is too hard to diagnose with just the error code.
Go to the directory C:\Windows\Minidump
Make sure that hidden files are visible.
Then zip up the recent files in that directory, and attach the .zip archive to your next post.

This problem looks to me like an overheating issue.
Get an Everest Report after 20 minutes of the computer being on. Click on "Everest Instructions" in my sig to get the instructions for that.

Well, actually my computer blue screened early and twice when I tried to restart I got blue screened almost immediately. Didn't catch the error label though. However, I waited a minute and then restarted again and its up. I'll try and get you a report at 9:28 but my computer is crazy.

All errors (going waaaay back) indicate RAM corruption.
Those errors may be caused by overheating as well, so I'll see, if you're able to post Everest report.

It doesn't show the most important read, CPU temperature.

Download, and install SpeedFan: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
Post your computer temperatures:

Unfortunately my computer refuses to start... I've clicked safe start, normal start, the last working start and all of them restart my computer and take me back to that screen. I can't get past it! This is very frustrating! I'll get you the temperature as soon as I CAN...

It crashed as I installed the fan program!

All the failing image names are core Windows components, and the failing processes were COD and Firefox.
Might as well check your memory right now, as it can be a problem. The only way you can get us the temps is through the BIOS.

Click on "Memtest Instructions" in my sig, and follow the instructions to test your RAM.

Alternatively, if you have more than 1 RAM stick, try to start computer with one RAM stick at a time.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to reply, but I have been busy. I hope you guys are still willing to help!

Okay, it's a fact: Speedfan causes my computer to blue screen. I have tried it several times and every time a blue screen. What does this mean?

I'm going to do the memory test now! Thanks for the help.

All right. Do the memory test and report back the results.

We need to see what is causing SpeedFan to Blue Screen. Go the the Minidump directory, and follow the same steps to zip up and attach all your recent dumps. I understand that you can't do this till your computer can boot though.
You can also use Broni's method to test your RAM.

GPU 81 °C (178 °F)
GPU Ambient 57 °C (135 °F)
WDC WD2500JS-75NCB1 55 °C (131 °F)


Your hard drive temp appears to be normal, but your GPU looks hot to me. You might want to open the case and clean the dust from it.

Well, I took out a stick of ram and everything SEEMS to be working fine, however I also have my computer case open and the fan on high to air it out.

Good news is, I managed to get speed fan working :

GPU: 74 C
HD0: 51 C
Core: 74 C
Ambient: 51 C

So now I know for sure its either a ram problem or a heat problem. Keep in mind these results are with case open/fan on high. I'm going to put the ram back in and see if everything still works. The minidump files are attached. Thanks for the help guys!

Your crash dumps indicate that a RAM problem was likely to have caused SpeedFan to Blue Screen. This is verifying that the stick of RAM you pulled out is defective.

The GPU is still a little hot. Give the case a dust cleaning.
