Hello!

I was wondering if anyone could give me some help on this matter...

I have had this blue screen appear about 3 times now, in about 3 or more months (they seem to happen occasionally) It doesn't seem serious as I can still do things on my computer... but I would like to try to solve the issue!

I checked the "WhoCrashed" program, and I got:

On Thu 3/10/2011 3:57:48 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: Unknown ()
Bugcheck code: 0x8E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000047, 0xFFFFFFFF804FCF44, 0xFFFFFFFFBA4D7A58, 0x0)
Error: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
Bug check description: This bug check indicates that a kernel-mode application generated an exception that the error handler did not catch.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: Unknown .
Google query: Unknown KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Hi chantal7 -
Please do the following as it will provide us with more information than the mini dump.

Please download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Thank You

I am having trouble understanding where to go after clicking that link. I think I installed it, I opened it but do not see anything. It's all blank. Is there something I am missing? My apologies, if I don't see it boldly I usually have troubles. Thanks for your time in trying to help me out!

Yep, I installed: Download BlueScreenView with full install/uninstall support

I don't see an exe file though. All I see is:

Bluescreenview (html help file)
Bluescreenview (application)
Bluescreenview (cfg file)
readme and uninstall

I assumed it was the application I clicked on. I clicked that to open it, but it's all blank.

There are "hot fixes" listed at the top left of this M/soft site -
Were you watching U Tube or other videos at the time that some of these Blue Screens occurred -

Have not forgot , been checking on watchdog problems - Many seem to be related to video drivers -
Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager , and look (towards the bottom) if there are any Red or Yellow ! marks

Yes, in fact the first TWO times this happened to me I was watching youtube videos. One was from a forum, one was on youtube itself. The third time I was playing a game on the computer (Diablo). I had a feeling all three of these events had something to do with it, but I still do not know how to react.

What are hot fixes? Can I request to get them from the link you provided?

Also, I don't see any red/yellow ! near the bottom of the device manager.... but I am not really sure that is the spot to view them? I see, for example, disc drives, then I can click and expand it.

I thank you again for your time and effort here in trying to help me out.

0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).


Have you recently updated any drivers for your system either manually or through windows update?
