BSOD randomly error 0x0000008e

Ok I have a moderate knowledge base when it comes to computers and my grandfather keeps getting BSOD with 0x0000008e I was hoping you could provide some insight as to what I can do to fix this issue. I already installed the tool on his computer but it didnt help any. Thanks in advance for your time.

PS I am submitting the 2 dump files he has on his computer

Welcome

Your dump does not give any specific cause.

Lets enable driver verifier to rule out buggy drivers
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Information
Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.

Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.

Random BSOD, error 0x0000008e
I've gotten this error before and I'm not quite sure what it is. I looked around and saw that some people thought it was a virus/rootkit and others thought it was the memory or some other hardware failing. I'm of the opinion that it is my memory or my motherboard, but once again, I'm not quite...
