Two diffrent error codes, seriously?

  1. Over the past month i have had about 7 blue screens. I havnt installed new hardware and did a reinstall of windows about 3 months ago. I am getting two different error codes. Now i have seen those codes but not the same parameters, im not sure if that matters. If it dosnt and my question is already answered, sorry. But hey, no harm in asking.

    Error code 000000f4, parameter1 00000003, parameter2 8a3d3470, parameter3 8a3d35e4, parameter4 805d297c.

    Error code 40000080, parameter1 8a403130, parameter2 89e4fe68, parameter3 bacd7b84, parameter4 00000001.

    Now these are the two main error codes, the parameters change for the other 5. I have a custom built computer, 2 hard drives, 1 master and one slave, no partitions. The crashes are random and can happen even when its just sitting.

    If this isnt enough information i would be glad to share my life with you.

    Anyway, from

    One of the many processes or threads crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. As a result, the system can no longer function. Specific causes are many, and often best resolved by a careful history of the problem and the circumstances of the error message.

    0x80 error: NMI_HARDWARE_FAILURE
    This general indication of a hardware failure is often quite difficult to pin down. Follow usual hardware troubleshooting protocols, in particular: Roll-back any recent hardware or driver changes; ensure that RAM sticks are matched and undamaged; check for viruses or hard drive damage; run ChkDsk to identify file system problems; ensure that all connections are sound inside the computer and all cards well-seated. In tough cases you may need to consult a professional shop for hardware diagnosis and repair.


    1. Run memtest for a minimum of 7 passes. Any errors concerning your RAM then run memtest per stick. Replace corrupted memory.

    2. Run a full harddrive diagnostics.

    3. Run ChkDsk.

    4. Scan for infections.
