Re: stop error message

Why not tell the details? That's the error code (something like 0x0000006E).

Someone else posted this same error ...

2 days ago. This was my answer: might give useful insights. Or not.

A search for 0x1000008e on these forums (using the search box on the top of the page) gives 3 other hits. So it's a little bit strange we have 2 now in 3 days.

If you think it's overheating:
- see if there's an option to measure the CPU temperature
- open the case and set a fan blowing into it. Does that make a difference?
