Blue Screen Stop 0x0000008E message

Hello,

Last Night I played games on my computer and I shutdown it, today morning when I started my system I am getting Blue Screen error message with the following stop message. Please check the below message.
0x0000008E (0x80000004, 0x80707AE1, 0x8CD823E8, 0x00000000)

I am not getting any notification or indication why its causing a blue screen, I have installed any drivers nor any programs or software in my system.

Any one know what this could be?
