New video card possibly giving the blue screen.

  1. A few weeks ago I installed a new graphics card into my computer and ever since I get the blue screen error with the stop message:

    ***STOP: 0x0000008E (0x00000005, 0xBF80E7AF, 0xAA2F7C60,0x00000000)

    ***win32k.sys - Address BF80E7AF base at BF800000, DateStamp 422511a2

    My computer's stats:
    Pentium 4 2.8
    Gigabyte P4 Titan mobo
    512mb PC3200 x2

    I replaced my GeForce 4 Ti4280 128mb AGP8x with an Abit Radeon RX800-Guru 256mb AGP8x

    My friend thinks it could be due to a broken fan on my mobo chipset causing it to overheat but it does this on startup sometimes so I don't think that's it.
