  1. Hi everyone,

    I've been experiencing some (seemingly) random computer restarts. I posted my crash information in the Windows OS forum and got redirected here. I've had this problem for a year or so now and it comes and goes, with no restarts for months and then bursts of many. I made a thread quite a while ago concerning this issue which is now locked.

    I got told to mention that my error is 0x8E and the driver cited is AmdK8.sys. Here's some extra information too!

    Source: System Error
    Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003

    Error code
    1000008e, parameter1 c000001d, parameter2 806d9e14, parameter3 80549bc4, parameter4 00000000.

    I tried to attach my minidump but it says that i can't because it's already uploaded it another thread. Check it out in the second post (if you need it) at

    Thanks for any help you can give me,
    Dave.
