BSOD issues redux
okay, you will remember a while back that i was having issues with my PC because it would BSOD before any actual gameplay starts. well, after getting a 0x07f stop code, i started getting 0x08E stop codes. now after some research, i found this
STOP Error 0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
STOP error 0x8E means that a kernel-mode application generated an exception that the error handler did not catch. STOP code 0x0000008E may also display "KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED" on the same STOP message.
STOP Error 0x0000007F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP
STOP error 0x7F means that the Intel CPU generated a trap and the kernel failed to catch this trap. STOP code 0x0000007F may also display "UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP" on the same STOP message.
again, we think its unmatched memory. however, i have my 1gb chip in until my pair of 512's get here (making a matching set of three 512 chips by the same manufacturer) i am now getting the 0x8E code when i play Steel Fury (a game i waited long and hard for, its depressing when it stops working) even though i have only one chip in, and its on all low settings.
now, my mother is saying, worst case scenario, its my motherboard...
anything spark something in your minds?
steel fury worked all fine and good last night, no crashes. I exited the game normally and i slept well
