Bug Check 0x1000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M
Bug check 0x1000008E has the same meaning and parameters as bug check 0x8E (KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED).
This blue screen can have several causes (from most likely to least likely):
- Faulty RAM
- Faulty hardware
- A problem with a device driver
- A virus
To help narrow down the cause, follow these steps:
Carry out some memory diagnostics using Memtest.
If any tests fail, replace the RAM and see if the blue screens persist.
Check to see if your RAM is properly seated in the motherboard.
This one seems obvious but I felt I should put it here for completeness. Whilst unlikely, it can be the cause of this error but unless you've opened the case recently or transported the PC anywhere, it's not likely to be the problem.
Have you changed the BIOS settings for your RAM?
If you've overclocked your RAM or misconfigured the RAM settings, this is also a potential cause. You can try restoring the default BIOS settings.
Disable RAM caching/shadowing settings in the BIOS
Somewhat related to the last point, but you can try disabling these and see if it alleviates the problem.
Have you recently install new device drivers prior to receiving the blue screen?
If so, uninstall the driver(s) and if possible, go back to older version(s). Try the machine out and see if the blue screens persist.
Carry out a virus scan.
This isn't likely to be the problem, but in very rare cases a virus can result in this blue screen.
Other things to try would be swapping out the graphics card, making sure your hardware is all compatible with the OS and also perhaps updating the BIOS.
