  1. Recently, I have tried to play (and install) games and i can play for a while (5-15ish minutes)But then the screen screws up and the colours turn into horizontal lines followed by a bluescreen. When the computer restarts I get this :

    Files that help describe the problem:

    I originaly thought the problem could be due to overheating (hot weather) because it was a heatwave when i started to get this, but even on a cool day i still get this issue.

    Any advice?

    0x8E errors are almost always caused by hardware and the horizontal lines sounds like artifacting which means either your video card is overheating or it is dying.
