A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have enough adequete disk space. If a drive is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacture for drive updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start up options, and then select safe mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8056537F, 0xB3F78C94, 0x00000000)

This message has recently popped up and i'm not sure what i should do. My monitor has continuously been shutting off and going into standby mode and i can't figure out why. I can still hear programs running and music playing yet i can't see anything at all. I have to manually restart the computer so i can use the computer again. It only shuts down when i use the internet, msn messenger, and some computer games such as: Star wars episode 1 The phantom menace, as well as counter strike

Also, Try re-installing\updating your video-card drivers.
