Hello, I have been getting a BSOD recently after starting to use a 32" TV as a 2nd moniter, so i figured it was related to that so i stopped using it but the blue screens have continuted. It happens whenever i open certain programs, one of which is when i try to log into Steam.
The BSOD says this:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow theses steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xF72F471D, 0xAA9AA580, 0x00000000)

*** atapi.sys - Address F72F471d base at F72EA000, DateStamp 4802539d

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

The BSOD has happened at other times other then when logging into Steam, 2 or 3 times now it happened randomly, and it happens whenever i try to run a game called "Kerbal Space Program".

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
