  1. Hi all,

    I have just recently gotten this BSOD after i upgraded my Vista Home Premium 32-bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

    Whenever i try to run a game application, specifically MapleStory, it always gave me a BSOD.

    I tried adding exceptions into DEP, tried running in different compatibility modes with admin priviledges, reinstalling my Graphic and Sound driver to the latest updates

    problem details are as follows:

    Problem signature:

    Both errors are 0x8E and these are almost always caused by hardware though sometimes they can be caused by drivers. This error is also a strong indicator of corrupted memory.

    Unfortunantly the minidumps only cited Windows OS drivers as the probable cause and they are usually too general to be of much help.

    I would say that with your gaming issue it is a good bet your video card drivers need to be updated. When you updated your drivers did you use something like Driver Sweeper to make sure the old drivers were completely removed before installing the new ones?

    Also, because of the error codes it would pay you to test your memory for corruption.

    See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than is listed but either one should work. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.
