you should have got a manual with the analyzer ,the e8 e9 and all other codes have different meaning with different bios brands so you first need to know what bios is in your computer ,that said pc analyzers suck big time and are a waste of money trust me i bought 2 different one many years back

you can get manual here ,first find out what bios your computer has ,it will show on the first boot screen when you turn on the computer .
