Bugcheck error 0x1000008e

  1. Please help. I built my second PC on Friday, and it all went like clockwork. The PC has run fine, until I tried online gaming (Warcraft Frozen Throne). The PC rebooted in the middle of a game. I checked the event viewer, and got the following:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbfa1af30, 0xf36a8b04, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini091805-01.dmp.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    From reading other posts, it looks like this is a cpu or mainboard problem. I bought a combo with a new P4 3.2ghz processor and an ECS 848P-A mainboard. I can't attach the minidump file - invalid file type.

    Can anyone tell me how to resolve where the error is? I only have 12 days left on the return policy, so I'll appreciate any suggestions.

    Me too, same problem

    I'm having the same crash issue.

    • Brand new motherboard, hard drives, video card
    • Brand new install / format (XP Pro SP1a)
    • Has done similar things with my old video card and mobo and hard drives
    • Brand new CPU too
    • RAM seems to be the only relevant thing that is older

    It happens when I dual-log (load 2 instances of) Anarchy Online, which is the same type of game as World of Warcraft. Doesn't seem to do it when I load only one instance, but if you play the game long enough you would realize why dual-logging is essential.

    Here are the details:

    This is extremely frustrating as Anarchy Online will let you get attacked even if your PC crashes and thus I lose all my buffs that I paid for, lose the pet, and I end-up respawning in some god-forsaken place far away from where I was. Pretty-much kills gameplay all-round, needless to say, I need to get it fixed and soon.

    The crash may be caused by faulty ram or device driver error.
    When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump
    Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen.

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps to a zip file and attach it here. Techspot has an upper limit of 100K per attachment. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.

    Same problem...

    Hi...I'm having the same problem and hoping I can take up your offer to look at my Bugcheck reports. I ran Memtest86+ for over 9 hours overnight and it came up clean (error free), so I'm reasonably certain that it's some sort of a driver issue. Digging through the Bugcheck report is beyond my understanding though so I'm hoping someone can help me out, and maybe teach me something along the way.

    The system reboots, like the first two guys above, under load. I play World of Warcraft and it can run fine for hours, and then reboot 3 times in the period of 10 minutes, as it did in 3 of these bugchecks. I've tried updating to the newest versions of all the drivers I can think of, with no improvement.

    I reformatted my system HD, reinstalled XP and SP2, reloaded new drivers and am still having the same issues. I've had 11 Bugchecks reported since I reformatted the system.

    Below I've put the Event information. I've also attached the 11 relevent Minidumps.

    Thank you in advance...I'll be checking this post several times a day if you have any questions or need more info.

    Thanks again!

    Edit: I should explain a few other things that have happened with the system recently....this issue with the bugchecks has been occuring for months, but perhaps a recent event will help diagnose this problem.

    So, a few weeks ago I tried to wake up the computer from the screensaver and it was locked. After rebooting the system, I found that it wouldn't even load the BIOS at all..even after repeated attempts to reboot. I'd get the HD and power light stuck on, no beeps, nothing from the monitor...didn't even sound like the HD was engaging. After swapping spare parts around, I was able to get the computer to boot using a different power supply. With the original power supply, even after disconnecting all non-essential boot items, it would still lock before loading the BIOS. So I ordered a new power supply, installed it, and I haven't seen the issue again......except:

    When trying to diagnose the random reboot issue this week (which finally got on my nerves enough to actually do something about), I took a 512 MB RAM out of a different machine to see if I could fix the problem by just replacing 1 of the 2 DIMMs in the problem machine. In the first case, the problem remained in exactly the same way as before. In the second case, it appeared to replicate the issue I had with the power supply...Power and HD lights on, but no other response from the system. This was before I did the RamTest which came up clean after 9 hours of continued testing on the original 2 sticks of RAM.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like maybe this is actually a motherboard issue? I can't seem to connect the problems with the different RAM DIMMs and the random reboots with anything else.

    So new update that I've been checking out tonight...

    I downloaded Speedfan and have been running it while I've been playing WOW tonight and I've been noticing that although the 3.3V seems pretty solid, the +5V is around 4V or so and the +12V jumps between about 6.5V and 11V or so... This is a brand new Ultra Xfinity 500 Watt power supply, so I didn't get the cheapo brand here....any help?

    Edit: From what I'm reading, it's impossible for the +12V to sit that low and the computer to be running at all..so one of two things...either the software is wrong, or is it possible that we come back to the motherboard being wacky again?

    Hardware error


    One minidump is crashed with CPU call error and one minidump is crashed with code corruption. They are the sign of faulty motherboard.

    This could just be a random problem either from overheating or from power supply issues too. I just had my PC shut down and it would shut down every five minutes with this error or one like it.

    I decided to check for dust/dirt and after cleaning out my case (CPU, graphics card, fans, RAM) I've been running for hours without problems.

    Just wanted to give a heads up for another reason this might be going on.

    bugcheck error 0x1000008e/0x1000007f/0x10000050/0x1000000a

    I am having the exact same problem with a few other dump codes
    I've been reading forums for the last 2 hours now and have pretty much figured out my problem

    My system only started crashing after I installed my vid card drivers and was either playing a game or music so the issue apears to be a conflict between my vid and audio drivers.
    I uninstalled my vid drivers and haven't had a crash since, but of course this sucks because I might as well not have a vid card
    So I found a link from another post for updated drivers for my built in sound card <realtek HD audio> and updated the drivers then reinstalled my vid card drivers from the website (most up to date) and haven't had any problems since.

    hope this helps,

    Hey there I'm new to these forums and I've recently made a thread about the problem I was having, you can find it here: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic104785.html

    I was looking through my Event Viewer logs and I found that I'm having the same problem as most of you, I got the 0x1000008e bugcheck which is an event 1001 and I've also had the 1003 which is a System Error. I've explained my problem in my other thread but its very similar to what I have read here.

    In short, my PC is only 6 weeks old, my first custom built PC. I'm using Firefox and my PC restarts, then it restarts a few more times until it "stablises" and I can leave it on for a day or two and play games without any problems.

    Two nights ago I decided to switch the PC off because it had been on for a few days and the weather is getting hot here so I wanted to give the PC a break so it wouldn't overheat. I switch it on the following morning and after a few blue screens and restarts I get the message Disk Boot Failure, Please Insert System Disk. I reset the CMOS after someone on this forum advised me and the PC seems to be working at the moment.

    I've been on this forum a few times and I know that cpc2004 is a very helpful person who can read dump files, I have zipped all of the available dump files I have and I would appreciate it if you to take a look at them, thank you.

    I know this is an old thread but I thought it would be easier to post in this one instead of creating a new thread.

    I'm getting Blue Screen while I play Warcraft III Frozen Throne and I would like someone to read my dump files so I can get to the bottom of it. I have yet to run Memtest but I will do this soon, I've attached two recent dumps and I also have another 8 in my post above.

    Yoelzz, you will need to post this in the BSOD forum that is contained at the top in the Windows OS forum. By the way, your English is fine. :)
