This one has been VERY difficult to nail down.

    Here's the info:

    Stop: 0x0000008E (0x00000005,0x806023DF, 0xF495391C, 0x00000000)

    Does this info actually help me?

    So far I've tried:

    Checking system temps/fan speeds (they're all well below the thresholds).
    Running utilities to check my HD's (they both tested o.k., but in my event log I see lots of Bad Block on disc1 listings)
    Installed brand new RAM
    Updated my BIOS

    I don't know what else to do here? Can anyone give me some direction?

    What are you doing when this happens? What applications are running?

    OK Stop errors are usually memory related most times .. Here's what I did to fix mine.

    After BIOS updates the BIOS is reset to default on most machines .. I had to go in and adjust the memory speed to auto instead of 400 .. This way the MB can peak it when needed instead of hitting any caps .. On my MB it was a setting to Turbo that set the Ram speed to Auto .. Also make sure the latest and greatest drivers are instaled for the Video card and your AGP speed matches what the card & MB can handle
