I constantly get the BSOD when I either play BF2 or the Special Forces. It would connect to the server, load the map, then the BSOD (blue screen of death) came on with the usual warning about hardware/software problem.

Here is the Technical Information from the BSOD:

STOP: 0x00008086 (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

My computer specs: Windows XP Pro SP2 Pentium 4 3.6 GHz 2 Gigabytes DDR2 RAM 256 MB Nvidia 6800 Series GPU

Any help is appreciated.

I would try uninstallin bf2, then make sure you have all the right drivers for your vid card, sound card etc. Then make sure all your devices are working properly in device manager. Then make sure all your memory sticks are working fine www.pcpitstop.com run their scans to check your memory is fine and you have no spyware, also run some other sort of virus/spyware scan if you have one If thats all fine then make sure you have adequate pagefile/swapfile bf2 requires around 256mb with your amount of RAM. Then do a clean reinstall of bf2, defrag, make sure when you play no background services like antivirus/firewall or messenger programs are running. Check control panel (ctrl+alt+del) to make sure no processes are taking up large amounts of processing power or RAM.

Then make sure your are patched up to 1.3. Then try playing. Let us know how you get on, if it still doesnt work post back and il give you some more things to try. Also if your not completely computer savy and dont understand some tips above post back and il explain in more detail.

The error number is actually quite a good indicator of what the issue may be. From looking around it appears that the error can be caused by Intel AHCI driver. Installing the Intel Matrix Storage Manager should resolve the problem. Other people have also stated that Zonealarm can cause the same issue, but whatever it is it appear to be a driver issue of some sort.

How and where do I download and install Intel Matrix Storage Manager?

I don't have Zone Alarm but I have Norton Internet Security 2006. I make sure to disable Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security before I play BF, but I still get the BSOD.

Thanks for helping. :)

IT FINALLY WORKS! I downloaded and installed the Matrix Storage driver and now there is no more BSOD!! YEAH!! THANKS A LOT! Maybe because three weeks ago I installed a new Maxtor 300 GB hard drive as secondary storage and the Intel chipset driver needed to be updated from 6-2004 to current month version 8-2006. Thanks again.

:)
