  1. I was having loads of trouble with BSODS, but after equating it to a problem with cooling and replaced a fan on my graphics card and no longer have this issue

    unfortunately ive now stumbled across another one, whereby none of my games will work. They will play for a short amount of time max 1minute, then crash due to a failure.

    Also, i cannot watch any videos on browsers, say for example youtube or others or the browser crashes


    previously i had for the BSOD's

    memtested memory (fine)
    virus checked
    updated drivers
    and now ive put new fans in

    and i recently had one random bsod so here is the crash dump for that



    so what is ittttttttt?

    Hi there,

    Your dump has a STOP code that is rather common unfortunately 0x8E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED with an exception code 0xC0000005: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION indicates that a memory access violation occurred.

    1. How did you go about testing your memory.

    2. Do you have a PCI-E or AGP graphics card? or are you just using the integrated graphics controller. If you have an actual card then I'd suggest running a tool on the video memory, since it is only happening when using graphics of some sort. Try running this tool here
