0x0000008e error message again...

  1. Hi there, i've tried alot of things to fix this damn problem but i did not find any solution working for me so far. I'm getting alot of BSOD 0x0000008e while playing video games like Counter-Strike source, battlefield2 etc.

    Heres what i have into my pc

    AMD64x2 4600+
    Power suplly: Antec Truepower2.0 480w
    Motherboard: ASUS m2n32-sli wifi edition
    RAM: OCZP800R22GK 2x1G
    HDD: SATA300 Western digital 250GB
    Floppy black standart
    DVDROM: lite-on
    VIDEO card: ASUS EN7950GT

    I did read some other forums. I did change the SKEW of AI CLOCK skew to ADVANCed 450Ps it didn't change anything ( visiting the OCZ forum). Maybe it is a power problem? An exemple: if i do start to play bf2 at 6:00pm well at 6:30pm my computer is lagging while others aren't. Do i need to increase the power of my PSU? Maybe i should ZIP my minidump but i do not know where it is and how. Maybe is it a RAM problem? Please help me.
    Thank You

    POWER SUPPLY is a definite possibility. Whether that is the problem (or not) you need something more stable. PC POWER & COOLING SILENCER 610. Also, update your drivers.

    hi there Chuck
    MY drivers are all up to date
    I was looking for a 700w OCZ power supply
    I forgot to mention that i've passed memtest86, simmtester, windows memory diagnostic and i did not found a single error.

    About your pc cooling system is it really worth it? I've hard some stuff aboutt he 7950gt overheating.. but i cant find anything on the web about it
