Blue Screen Error 8e

How to prevent the coming of Blue Screen Error 8e message while booting the computer system?

Have you ever encountered the blue screen of death? When you get a blue screen with an error message, you might be worried, praying that your PC does not crash and you lose all of your work and files that are stored on the PC. A blue screen error message usually appears when there is some critical problem with your PC and system files. When you try to boot up your computer, you might find that you are presented with this blue screen and the PC then restarts itself. The blue screen error usually contains a numerical code associated with it. Each numerical error message would mean different things. For instance, one error message that you could receive is the blue screen error 8e message. This error is usually related to driver issues such as BIOS or video or low disk space. The 8e error message is quite common and in order to interpret it, you would need to identify which exception was generated. For instance, 0x80000002: STATUS_DATATYPE_MISALIGNMENT would indicate that an unaligned data reference was encountered. Likewise, 0x80000003: STATUS_BREAKPOINT indicates that a breakpoint or ASSERT was encountered when no kernel debugger was attached to the system. Finally, 0xC0000005: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION indicates that a memory access violation occurred. This error can be avoided with certain measures that you can take.

  • Avoid hardware incompatibility

  • System optimization

  • Driver checks

Avoid hardware incompatibility

Whenever installing any new hardware, it is highly recommended that you check on the issue of compatibility. You must always ensure hardware compatibility by checking the new hardware that is installed against those that are listed in the Microsoft® Windows® Marketplace Tested Products List. Do not assume that any change that you make to the PC will be acceptable with no repercussions caused. Rule out the error 8e message by ensuring that all programs and installations are compatible with the system you have at hand.

System optimization

You may sometimes get the error 8e message straight after booting up the computer. If this is the case, you can consider low disk space to be one of the causes. In order to avoid the occurrence of this problem, you should regularly do a disk cleanup and a defragmentation scan to delete any unneeded temporary files, Internet cache files, application backup files, and .chk files containing saved file fragments from disk scans. Should you need to install new software and programs, you may want to clear up the space before installing them. BIOS related problems can be resolved by upgrading the system BIOS version.

Driver checks

The blue screen error 8e message can also occur if there is a driver related problem. A faulty device driver or system service may be responsible for an 8e error. As such, in order to prevent this problem, it may be advisable to check on a regular basis if all drivers are working properly and are updated. Any incompatibility in drivers could in turn result in the 8e error. If you detect any faulty driver during your regular check, you will be able to deal with the problem before it turns into a blue screen of death. When an error or problem is detected, you can then solve the problem before it worsens.
