Question: how to DISABLE Machine Check, WHEA bug check

Hello.

I have a SuperMicro server with windows 7 32bit. I am using a specialized hardware that can understandably may cause machine check errors because I have a pcie device that can stop responding to cpu non posted transactions for long pepriod of time. I have disabled the pcie timeouts in the hardware, but some other cpu exception occurs due to this long waiting time for the pcie transaction to complete. I get the BSOD with WHEA exception 124.
Bug Check 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR

Reported by compenent: Processor Core
Error source : 3
Error type: 9
Processor ID: 36

Event ID 18

How do I disable this machine check in windows 7 ?

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello! Would appreciate any help with this one.

working on a new build and fresh install of Windows 10. I've installed all Windows updates and drivers for the hardware. However, I'm experiencing frequent BSODs while idle or surfing online. The system also freezes completely if it sits idle for a while and I am forced to hard reset it.

I've run memtest, and cmd commands sfc scannow, dism, and chkdsk; no errors were found. Event Viewer doesn't show any errors besides the BSOD alerts.

It would appear the 0x0000124 is related to the PCI Express Bus, ie Graphics card Driver or Chipset Software, possibly BIOS conflict.Therefore I would update drivers:a) Chipset Softwareb) PCIe Graphics Card Driver if you have a Graphics Card

Situation: Win 8 Lenovo laptop is borked - necessitating reinstalling the OS - decided to ditch Win 8 (hatedit) to go with something that works, i.e. Win 7 Pro. The laptop uses UEFI.

Steps, as I understand them: please correct any errors.

Having removed laptop HDD and confirmed it is working and wiped it using my desktop, reinstalled.

Connect USB media into Desktop and format it for FAT32,
Copy Win 7 Pro 64 disk onto USB
Insert USB into laptop, boot and install from USB

Anything I am missing?
 

Answer:Installing Win 7 Pro onto a UEFI Machine (formerly Win 8 machine) - Check me, pls.

Download the Windows USB tool here.

This will load the iso of win7 to a usb pen and make it bootable for the installation.

Hi everyone! As you can probably tell with the topic title, I'm getting Machine
Check Exceptions like crazy now. The first one I ever had (until now) with this
computer was five months ago. Now all of a sudden, I'm getting them all the time
with the same error code at random moments. Here's what I get.

MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

Technical Information:

***STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x8054D5F0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

I searched the internet for solutions and have run Windows Memory Check and
Memtest for about 12 hours with no errors. I also updated ALL drivers, double
checked to see if overclocking was enabled by accident, checked my hard drive,
cleaned my registry, checked for viruses and spyware, and went through all events
in control panel to see if there was a log of some kind. These seemed to start
occurring a few days ago, about the same time I installed IE 7. Could something
in IE be causing them? I did get one just after I unplugged my USB printer from
the computer, the printer is hot swappable and I never had any issues doing it.
I removed the drivers for the printer and reinstalled them and they still happen.

Here is my computer's specs.

Nice system! What make/model mobo?http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x9chttp://www.osronline.com/ddkx/ddtools/bccodes_03af.htmThe first set of parameters indicates that this happened in Bank #4 of your memory. Do you have 4 sets of memory modules? I'm suspecting that this is a case of memory overload (XP generally can't recognize that much memory - but that's a whole 'nother discussion). Why didn't it happen before? - BTFOM (Beat's The F*** Outta Me!), maybe a Windows Update?The error points to:1) overheating2) bad hardware3) overclockingI'd first suggest running with only 2 gB of RAM for a while to see if that clears up the problem (it'll also vacate Bank #4, so if it's a mobo problem with Bank #4, it'll also clear that up).Also, I'd try this free temperature monitoring utility to see if you can find any overheating: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php Ensure that you also look into checking the RAM, video card, and mobo temps. If you can't get a tool to do this, try opening the case and directing cool air onto each component in turn (with a fan - but watch out, it'll generate static!)Another interesting link: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=329284&sd=RMVPCheck your Event Viewer for errors relating to this Event ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ )Search your hard drive for files ending in .dmp and .mdmp If you find then, use this link to perform an analysis of them: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246The...

Hey all, three times in about 3 hours my comp has bsod'd to machine_check_exception. I forgot to turn off auto reboot so I don't have the details at the moment but will add info if it happens again. I'm thinking that it's being caused by this finicky HD I have - sometimes I hear it clicking and the machine stutters. In looking at the event log I get the same 3 errors everytime before it bombs:

I have this non informative error and have looked to most things someone can look to.
It happens when:
Connecting everything and running an "burn in" test to check if all is fine.
When i just use the computer it might happen in an hour, sometimes immediately and sometimes stay away for a day.

The next steps i have tried to pinpoint the problem:
Took out all hardware except one harddrive with the boot info on, seems to solve it but is NOT an accepted solution.
Switched 3 different memory modules (2x 256mb and 1x 512mb) any used as single module to prevent incompatible issues, did not resolve anything and swapping memory slots isn't the problem either (the computer runs fine with any memory module when all devices are disconnected except harddrive with boot info).
Then next step was trying to pinpoint hardware related erroring, doesn't matter what i connect with either of the heavy devices (another harddrive or dvd rw drive the computer failed again).

My idea was that it is the powersupply but after buying one new one, then a 2nd then a 3rd even more extreme model didn't do anything to increase anything into the stability.

To exclude os / driver errors i have tried many different things, like factory defaulting bios, upgrading bios to latest version, installed everything 5x over using: windows xp 64 bit edition (2x), windows xp home / pro 2x pro and 1x home so i was sure it isn't the os either.

I tried different drivers from the default in box driver... Read more

Answer:Machine check exception

I now can add the final smaller test results to it:

Temperature no problem:
motherboard / cpu temperature 39~41 degrees celcius reported by mobo bios screen and several windows applications consistently
Videocard temperature 37~39 degrees celcius reported by several windows applications consistently
So another point i thought was not in the order.
However i now pulled of the cooler and hard disk (30gb) and ran another test for 10 runs to be sure and finally after a lenghty half a day and a full night testing i return to the computer STILL normally in windows.

However odd this was previously it didn't help to pull of the hard disk so i guess the new powersupply does hold up better and the older hard disk just was desterbing it to much (like i allready pinpointed to haveing to many devices on it that it got killed).
Now im just leaving out the old hard disk however i doubt i shall upgrade this computer cause the same problems would possible return then.

This topic can be locked or whatever should happen to it

This windows BSOD keeps appearing about once a day now, and I am getting frustrated because I cannot find much info on it anywhere and trying to decode it with the Intel software documentaion manual gets me stuck.

I know this must be a hardware issue as I have read just about every article published on the subject.

Here are the specs on the PC: 4GB DDR2 RAM, Windows XP SP3, New 405W enermax power supply, 500GB seagate SATA drive, Asus PN532-SLI premium motherboard with Nvidia chipset, Intel 1.6GHZ core duo processor, with Nvidia 7600GT.

Recently the powersupply failed (whining capacitor) and that was changed, now the machine is blue screening about once a day. I have eliminated temperature, AC/Power issues, power supply issues, or bad RAM. I have also run burn in tests on the CPU for hours with no issues, same with memtest on the RAM. The power supply voltages are all good, as are the temperatures logged by speedfan just before the BSOD happens( the only thing high is the GPU which sits at 55C constantly, but this card can run close to 130C according to Nvidia). There are also no bulged capacitors on the mobo.

I think bug checks decoded to an internal timer error MCE according to the intel manual but I am not sure if that is right as there are so many numbers....

Right now I am running ubuntu with mcelog to see if that can decode it for me but it did not crash at the normal time like any other night.......

What is the model number of your power supply?
Is your CPU or memory overclocked in any way?

Hi!

I was just playing Trackmania United and in the background Mirc was running. When Mirc suddenly said "You are disconnected" (it plays a sound file saying that), the computer crashed and I got a BSOD saying machine_check_exception.

Now I have had the computer for a few month and have not had this happen before, so my question is: can it be caused by software, a bug in trackmania or mirc or some collision of ressources when mirc played that sound, or do I have some kind of hardware problem?

I have tested my RAM for about 4 hours with no problems. I have 2gb and my processor is a core 2 duo 6600. The graphic card is Nvidia geforce 7900gto.

I hope it's just software related!

Answer:Machine check exception

Hi Morientes2000

This is usually a hardware condition. Here's Microsoft's article for the error, and a troubleshooting checklist (at the top, notice that if you are overclocking - this can cause such an error - so, too, can incorrect Bios settings, insufficient cpu/system cooling, and inadequate/faulty power supply, or faulty memory . . . you've already checked for faulty memory, so you'll be looking at the others) --- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329284

Make sure you have all the right chipset drivers for your motherboard installed, too - as having dicey drivers can upset timings, & cause errors that look hardware related - when they are actually caused by poor or incorrect drivers.

Also, look in on the logs in EventViewer & see if that yields clues:
To Explore EventViewer
1) Click on Start/Control Panel/Performance and Maintenance/Administrative Tools/EventViewer.
2) Several logs are listed: simply select a log, and events will appear in a list in the window-pane to the right.
3) To view the details of an event, right-click the event, and select ?Properties?.

... and should a BSOD or two keep occurring, send along the full error message, and we'll take a look.

Best of luck

Answer:machine check exception error help

Wow, I haven't seen an MCE since my mainframe days! You should feel special!

When this happened more than once, I'd get a CE (hardware mechanic) involved,and they'd ultimately update microcode, or memory cards.

The only thing I found that may be a ray of hope is an active thread elsewhere:

http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=981867&page=1

Check it out and monitor it. Even butt in with additional info if you have any.

Meanwhile perhaps someone will add comments here as well.

I am getting a BSOD issue generally when playing games on my pc. The error code is usually Machine_Check_Exception and it comes up somewhat randomly after playing for a bit. Sometimes I can play for an hour with no issues sometimes it will come up after on few minutes of play. It will also occasionally happen immediately(Within 30 Seconds) of starting up after another BSOD. Any help would be dope.

Answer:BSOD - Machine Check Exception

I ran into this error the other day. From my searching and own troubleshooting, this is what I come up with:

- I hear the nvidia IDE drivers could be the cause. Could try uninstalling those and using native XP drivers?

- I removed all overclocking on the system in question and put the memory in single-channel mode. If it proves stable for a few weeks, i might gradually re-introduce the overclocks or dual chan.

- Could be overheating?

I know those are not conclusive suggestions, but I could not find any sure-fire cause or fix for this condition.

Hi, I bought this PC about 1 1/2 year ago and never had any problems with it until recently.

I started having blue screen whenever I was playing games (mostly Guildwars and World of Warcraft). I got blue screens only once I played the game for a long time. But now I get the blue screen more and more often, even when I'm just surfing on the web. I can't do anything with it anymore. It boots in Windows and it can stay on for a long time but as soon as I start doing something like surfing the web, burning a cd or playing a game, I get the Machine check exception error. Its always the same error and comes up pretty much randomly, sometimes its at start up, sometimes it takes a while.

Pentium D Dual Core 3.2 Ghz
Asus P5N32-Sli Deluxe Mobo
1Gb DDR 2 Ram
NVidia GeForce 6800GS
560W Thermaltake PSU
Windows XP SP2 Home edition

I tried all of these things:

- All my fans (3 fans + Cpu fan + Video card fan + 2 PSU fans) are working.
- Temperature is ok, even tried putting a regular home fan as close as possible to the video card to get lower temperature and still got the error.
- Ran Memtest for about 2 hours and rams are ok, even tried different rams and still got the error.
- Checked for errors on my HD and found none.
- Installed all the latest drivers but it didnt work. Then I reformated my HD.

I noticed one bad capacitor on my mobo right next to my CPU. Maybe that might be the problem?

I am new with this but I got someone helping me. ... Read more

Answer:BSOD: Machine check exception

If you can see one bad capacitor then the chances are that others are going bad too but have not shown it yet.
Best bet is to replace the board - unusual for Asus to do this so try a warranty claim.

Hello guys

My Windows XP Pro SP2 system was running fine for 2-3 years before today. I got a new Samsung F3 500gb HD and put it in my pc. It recognized it and the windows xp screen came on. However after a minute it gave me the bsod. This was meant to be my storage hard drive. The original hd where the windows is installed is still connected. I checked all the priority boot orders in bios and everything is fine. I disconnected the F3 hd and left everything exactly as it was yesterday. However I am still getting this annoying bsod. I checked all the connections and they seem fine. When i try to load windows in safe mode, it loads fine. Also i tried to do a system recovery but to no avail.

Heres the exact message

I'm getting a few different symptoms on each boot but the most notable is freezing and the Machine Check BSOD. I've seen others with a similar issue but with various resolutions.

Normally my PC stays on full-time. It's on a PDU with surge suppression and an APC battery backup. We had an outage a couple days ago and the batteries in the APC died prematurely due to failure (replacements on the way). Since then I cannot get the PC to stay on for more than 5-10 minutes at a time.

The only recent change I can recall was installing Andy OS Android emulator. Between freezes I uninstalled it but still no luck.

Hope someone can help! Thank you ahead of time.

My computer freezes randomly, often. In the beginning it was the blue screen that said that it needed to restart and then froze, with the text MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTIONS. And sometimes it's just freezing and i have to hold the powerbutton to power it off. Where do i start? I know i got old drivers because the computer have been off for some time, but this problem occured when it was like 2 months old. So i tried updating the drivers, but it freezes before the update of all drivers is completed. I'm not a tech guy so i don't even know where to start. hoping to find some guidence and even a solution here.

So please, tell me what you want me to do so you can see where to begin.

Howdy All,

For a long time now I've been plagued with problems whist using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. I've tried everything I can think of, replaced many components inside my computer, but the problem still exists. The only thing I can think to do now is burn my computer and buy a prebuilt Dell with a warranty.

My rig is as follows:

Mobo: Asus P5QL Pro
CPU: Q9400
RAM: OCZ DDR2 Gold 1033Mhz
Graphics: ATI HD5770 1gb
PSU: 550w thermaltake
HDD: Samsung F1 Sata
Sound: Creative X-FI

Every couple of days I get an error ID 18,
machine check exception
Reported by: Processor core
Error type: bus/interconnect error
ProcessorID: 1

I've noticed when these errors occur I get 3 all at the same time usually with different ProcessorID numbers, but sometimes the same. I also get black screens regularly, although one time just yesterday I got a pale blue screen (not the blue screen of death). My computer seems to carry on running, but the display goes black and I can't do anything except reset.

Everything in my computer is running at stock - no overclocking

I've tried the following:

Underclocked my GPU
Relaxed my RAM timings (from the ones it recommends running at)

Removed my sound card
Disabled all my sound cards

The old error was a STOP 0x9C, the new one is a STOP 0x124

Since I've upgraded my PC it freezes and restart. I guess it's because of drivers. I scanned my device using Orthos Prime and Memtest 64 and there is no errors. Besides Safe mode and Linux works correctly. Driver verifier found violation in isctd64.sys driver (Intel Smart Connect Technology). I tried to reinstall system multiple times, turning off automatic drivers update, updating/installing this driver and BSoD still appears. How to prevent it? Thanks for help.

Hi i would like ask why my pc got a Machine Check Exception BSOD error code STOP: 0x0000009C as loged on to windows desktop is doesnt not do it all the time just now and again its very strange could someone tell me why? thanks
 

Answer:Machine Check Exception BSOD

0x0000009C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

As you can see from above, a bugcheck of 9C usually means you have a hard ware problem of some description.

You will need to diagnose which hard ware is at fault.

In your other thread, I pointed out you may have a failing hard drive.

See this thread HERE and see if it helps you to identify the culprit.

If it doesn`t, please attach 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps.

Hello, I've been getting random BSOD's even since getting my EVGA 660Ti back in November. At this point I think it could be the problem...I thought at first it was since the card used more power and I had a smaller PSU so it wasn't getting power and would cause the BSOD. Well I bought a new 750W PSU and still have the issue. After a bit of researching I found that it could be a bad sector on my hard drive and since I was wanting to get an SSD I just said to hell with it and bough a 240GB SSD for Windows and a few other things. Still getting the problem on a fresh windows install..so here I am. I ran the MiniToolBox.exe and I have a link to my speccy snapshot. Hope you guys can help me find the problem!

I noticed from your HijackThis log that you have the latest update for Java installed on your computer. I have noticed -- as have several of my friends -- that the Sun Java Version 5, Update 6 caused IE on my computer to slow down dramatically.

I started experiencing a 20-30 second delay in the launch of Internet Explorer -- as well as a page link slowdown -- after installing update 6 (version 5) of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE 1.5.0_06). To fix this, I uninstalled all Java updates that I found in Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs), rebooted, and then went back to Java update 5 (JRE 1.5.0_05) by reinstalling it. You can find it in the Sun Java archives here:

http://java.sun.com/products/archive..._05/index.html

Save the file to you desktop, run the file from there, then reboot after installation.

You also might want to consider unchecking "check for updates automatically" under the "updates" tab on the Java Control Panel (double-click the Java icon in Control Panel to open). -- At least until Sun figures out this problem with update 6.

My IE is now running fine again -- fast as before, and Java still works.

Hope that helps.Click to expand...

Answer:Bsod / Machine Check Exception

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

3 minidumps crash at ntoskrnl.exe. This is Windows bootup kernel. They have a bugcheck of 9C.

1 minidump crashes at sysaudio.sys. This is Windows System Audio WDM Filter driver. It has a bugcheck of 9C.

0x0000009C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

Here is a little background information.
I built a computer a while back, and after the videocard burned up and stuff, I figured it was time to upgrade my computer.

I replaced the:
Motherboard
Videocard
Processor
Power Supply

It seemed to work fine at first, but after a little bit of gaming, the computer will lock up for about 4 seconds, and then take me to a blue screen with some technical information.

I looked into it a little bit, and aparently its a hardware issue, and I thought it might be related to my RAM since that was one of the only components I didn't upgrade.

However it still happens, so I took it to the shop about a week ago, and they charged me 40 bucks to tell me nothing was wrong... That it could be some sort of software issue related to the game I play.. So I reformatted when I got home, and of coarse 5 mintues after plugin'in the computer up it did it again.

Here are the details I got with EVEREST (saw that it might help you guys help me on another thread)

Answer:Machine System Check Error.

That error is for a faulty CPU. But there were alot of issues with the earlier dual core chips and gaming. Go to AMDs web site and see if you need their patch. Also run Windows update. Also make sure you havethe latest chipset drivers.

so here is my problem. i just built a brand new computer that i have been saving forever for that cost me $950. all brand new stuff assembled by me and a friend (who has built stable systems before) we configured everything right,cpu tight, mobo screwed down, power connected stable...everything seems good right?

so around a week into running i get a hard drive error, which we fix by stabalizing the hdd with some extra screws. maybe a week later i start getting this fatal blue screen giving me a machine_check_exception error.

i have no clue what to do about this error so i boot into safe mode with networking, and everyhing appears normal so i restart and it boots up fine to my normal desktop. this error keeps happening and i continue to boot into safe mode and then restart, probably did this 4-5 times. now i get the error constantly and sometimes cannot even boot into safe mode. here are my specs:

As you can see, this is clearly a hardware error. Usually (but not always) it is RAM-related.
Sp, please download and run the Windows Memory Diagnostic utility.

Let it run for some time and post back how it went. Moreover, your RAM seems to be a kit consisting of two 1GB chips. Can your pc operate on only one of them, so that you try and rule out if only one is defective. Additionally, your RAM seems to be non-ECC. What is your relevant setting in your Bios?

Hi Im running:
Soltek SL-75FRN2-RL (good board in the day!)
AMD Socket A 462 2600+
512mb RAM
GeForce 2 Ti graphics

I know the setup is pretty old but was reliable and plenty powerful enough for the type of use my parents use this computer for. Recently after putting this exact setup into a new case it intially BSOD a few times with the 0x0000009c Machine Check Exception and now has bypassed the BSOD and event log and just rebooted. I have run a quick and deep DOS based RAM diagnostic and pulled up nothing there. I checked the PSU in my own setup and their is no problem there despite my new system probably pulling a lot more power.

What does this spell for me? I have read a few things around that it could be the L1 or L2 cache that is stuffed... would this be a possibilty? Would it possibly be related to the Graphics card instead? or is the 0x09c code more likely linked to the core system ie CPU, RAM etc

Suggestions would be great.

----THE POINT----
Well, I am at my wits end on this one. After weeks of lurking, I have decided it's time to just ask someone to look at my .dmps and tell me WHERE this error is occurring.

---THE BACKGROUND---
I have recently received an Hp m8100e computer that has a few upgrades. The two primary ones being a LightScribe DVD burner and a GeForce 8500gt. I am normally quite adept at fixing computer problems, but I have exhausted almost all of my energy the past few days. I am aware that this error is caused by hardware, and have been slowly eliminating hardware.

First, the TV tuner, No change, errors occur every 8 hours or so

Second, Backup DVD drive, No change, 8 hours

*Installed 64bit windows*

Third, Lightscribe, still errors, 10-12 hours

Increased fans to 75% at all times, underclock gpu when not in use, still errors, ALMOST got 20 hours today

I am about to try taking the RAM out of dual channel, if the error persists, I will remove One stick.

Attached are my last 4 dumps. Im hoping they will point to a specific piece of hardware as I have seen in other topics similar to this one. There are only 4 since I have switched to x64, there were many more when I had x32 But I forgot to save them.

Answer:Blue screenning - Machine Check Exception

Your CPU is fine. 50C is healthy.

It sure sounds like a hardware conflict.

First up - Isolate the problem. Can you connect to the internet? When exactly do you get these error messages? On start up, shut down, connect to the net..... etc...

For now, check your RAM for compatibility with your mobo and other components.

For clarity.... Look up Balarc Advisor on Google and download it. Run it. That will give you a complete advisory of all software and hardware you're machine is running. You may spot the troublemaker yourself.

If not, post it in here.

We'll take a look.

Answer:Machine Check Error...please help, brand new computer

Screws?

Perhaps I am misunderstanding what you are saying, but I do not see how a "hard drive error" can be fixed with extra screws. When you booted into safe mode, were you able to run chkdisk? I'm not an expert, but it sounds like your hard drive could be a bad one. Does it make any noises? Excessive clicking?

I would also try to run MemTest- one stick at a time. If you can get to them, there are people on this site that can advise you on your "minidumps." (reports windows makes makes when it encounters errors.

Maybe some of the smarter guys will respond, but that is my opinion of where to start checking. One more thing- that PSU doesn't have the best reputation. it could be part (or more) of the problem. I know I haven't been much help, but at least this will bump the thread- maybe smart people will notice and help.

Good luck, man. :knock:

My computer was restarting abruptly. I changed the settings to prevent restart. Now it shows a BSoD
"Machine check exception" 0x0000009C

System : Intel Pentium IV , windows xp.

My troubleshooting so far :

1. I allowed the computer to boot up and entered BIOS setup. Then allowed it to sit in BIOS. It did not reboot. I think we can rule out overheating and processor related problems.

2. Booted windows xp in safe mode and allowed it to remain. It rebooted after a while. So we can rule out any software related problems.

3. It has 512 Mb ddr2 ram ( single stick ). I changed this with a new ram. This did not solve the reboot problem. so RAM is unlikely the cause.

4. Changed the ram to the second slot. It did not stop the rebooting. So faulty slot in motherboard is not the problem.

Its getting bit frustrating to pin point the cause. My suspects still are :
a. hard disk overheating / faulty bus

b. some problem in motherboard circuit/capacitors etc , now this would be a tough nut to crack. It is a new motherboard , so should not be so.

c. some weird window xp problem. may be i need to re-install. By the way i forgot to mention that I was getting the restart problem during installation of my current windows. does that point to anything ?

folks, any ideas/help please.

Windows XP takes most of the small amount of RAM you have to run successfully.

However your error message is telling us here, here and from here, that you may have a Hard Drive issue.

Is it possible to install more RAM on your system?

Greetings Techspot!

This is a complete custom machine. I have built it entirely from scratch, and typically am able to diagnose and solve most of my issues on my own. However this time I am unable to do so.

OS: Windows XP w/SP3
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800
Mobo: Asus M2V-MX
RAM: Crucial 2G DDR2
Vidcard: Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT
Sound: Diamond Xtreme XS5.1
430w Power Supply Unit

I have already cleaned the dust, double checked the fans, installed Everest and Speedfan, run checkdisk, reset my pagefile, and defragged my HD. Speedfan shows all of my temps within normal parameters according to manufacturer specs, and the 12v rail runs at 11.26v steady.

I'm unsure what exactly Everest is supposed to show me, so I'll answer what questions you ask or run a report and upload it.

As it stands, I'm having to post this while I'm in SafeMode with Networking. I was able to completely defrag (14hrs!!!) in Safe Mode, but a restart into Normal mode caused more BSODs again. Because I'm in safemode I can't download the Windows SDK with Debugging to check these minidumps myself.

Thank you in advance for any and all assistance you are able to give regarding my situation =D

Again, thank you in advance =D

Hello, everyone. This is my first post on this site. Someone recommended me to come here to see if I could find a solution to my problem. I have been getting the BSOD crash for 8 days now, and it seems the problem goes beyond my knowledge. It all started 7-8 days ago, after running a Radeon Clean Install for my graphics drivers. After that, I had some issues, so decided to open my case to reseat the GPU, and then reset Windows (keeping my files). After the reset, Windows worked fine for about 20 minutes, and then started crashing, always giving me the "Machine Check Exception" BSOD. To make the long story short, I have reset and fresh-installed Windows about 5 times, and the issue still persists. I don't know what it is, but Bluescreenview says it's caused by "hal.dll" in System 32. I have tried everything under my knowledge regarding PCs. I have reseated the GPU, CPU (reapplied thermal paste), heatsink, RAM, even reconnected all cables inside the case. After the last fresh install (I did it yesterday), I managed to update most drivers, but now I can barely load my desktop, because it crashes while booting Windows. It's important the fact that it runs flawlessly in Safe Mode, and in BIOS. I'm right now typing this from Safe Mode. Please someone help me...

There is only so much you can do with a bugcheck like this until it comes down to a faulty processor that will need to be replaced. Start from 1 and work downward:

1. Ensure your temperatures are within standard and nothing's overheating. You can use a program such as Speccy if you'd like to monitor temps - http://www.piriform.com/speccy

2. Clear your CMOS (or load optimized BIOS defaults) to ensure there's no improper BIOS setting -http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixthe.../clearcmos.htm

3. Ensure your BIOS is up to date.

4. The only software conflict that can usually cause *9C or *124 bugchecks are OS to BIOS utilities from manufacturer's like Asus' AI Suite, AI Charger software, etc. If you have something like this software-wise, remove it ASAP (which I see you do have Asus software installed).

5. If all of the above fail, the only left to do is replace your processor as it is faulty.

Hello tenforums users! I've been getting a lot of random BSODs since last week but I couldn't tell what was the issue. I've read about the error on the Internet and from what I understand from those, Machine Check Exception will occur to drivers issue, hardware issues (CPU or RAM). I've checked the RAM sticks in my PC (booting with only 1 stick and switching slots every time BSOD happens), changing the thermal compound in case of bad conduction, but still no luck. I've also reformatted the Windows partition and the BSOD occurred not long after it booted up. Windows ran fine in Safe Mode for about an hour. Any help would be appreciated! This is my first time using tenforums so I will try my best to follow the rules of posting. Cheers. DESKTOP-VUK87C3-Mon_10_10_2016_223559_98.zip

Answer:Check parts is original without open the machine

Welcome to the forum!
 
You can search the machine type/model number on the Lenovo support website or look up the specific model in Product Specifications Reference (PSREF). This will give you the specifications of the major components, e.g. CPU, RAM, display, HDD, etc. so you can ensure that nothing has been upgraded or downgraded. Even if the FRUs are identical, there's no way to know if a component has been replaced with an identical one.

I'm currently getting alot of BSODs whilst gaming only. I've updated my drivers that I know of and tested my ram with memtest but still I will constantly get BSOD while playing games such as cities skylines or PUBG.I bought a new EVGA G2 PSU so that should be fine. I have also never overclocked which I saw could be a issue. I've also done a clean install of windows 10 and just installed steam and a few games to make it BSOD for the dump.
Specs
i5 - 4690k
MSI Nvidia970
Corsair vengeance 16gb

Hopefully you guys can save me.

Thanks alot.

I'm going to try to make a long story short here.

I've been fighting with my computer for the last couple of days. I foolishly flashed the BIOS in hopes of fixing a small problem I had (but was living just fine with it).

I worked through several different errors (including an "uncorrectable hardware").

After following and fixing the errors (which included getting rid of a stray NVIDIA file and changing my anti-virus to MS's Security Essentials, I have come to the end of my day and the end of my wits.

I am rock solid stable in Safe mode, but after a couple of (idle) minutes in "regular" Windows 7 64-bit mode, it reboots.

I am receiving a machine check exception which points to my intelppm.sys

I've run sfc /scannow and everything has checked out.

I've googled the problem and I'm having problems making sense out of what I'm reading - I'm definitely in over my head.

The best I can make out is that I have a problem with my CPU's C states.

But I don't quite grasp what that means nor how I can fix it.

I've attached my mini dump in hopes that someone out there can help.

Thanks!

Hi folks, wonder if somebody could help me please.

After sorting a boot loop/autochk issue with Macboatmaster earlier this year I have another problem with my machine. After fixing this I left the machine for a while until it found a new home. Recently the machine has had the following hardware added:
- AOC monitor
- Dell keyboard and mouse
- Belkin wireless broadband adapter.

The following additions/changes have been made to the software:

- driver for belkin adapter installed
- Monitor driver installed (i think). Not a particulary easy CD to navigate and im not even sure if it contains a driver or just a manual,.
- AVG 2011 removed with avgremover.exe. I had a corrupt installation that slowed the PC to a crawl.
- Adobe flash player 10 installed, I had repeated requests along the top for allow add-ons etc before this.
- ive ran superantispyware scan and nothing detected.

For a while the machine was running fine. However, yesterday I went to fire it up and one of several things are happening:
- the machine will freeze on the windows xp loading screen. No option but to restart.
- the machine will freeze on a black screen after the BIOS details screen. After a while the cursor at the top left will turn to a message reading 'disk read error, press ctrl, alt, del to restart'
- Occasionally I get to the screen where the options for start windows normally, last known configuration, safe mode etc When I hit enter on any option 9 times out of 10 it will freeze on t... Read more

I get this message in event viewer/ system. It comes right before my system crashes. I can see this message (usually 4-6 times) after I hard boot (power off) since resetting stalls out during reboot. What happens is that my PC just freezes (i've even left it for 30 min or so to make sure). I have read done some research and it seems that this has something to do with XP and AMD processors. I have turned off the "identify unique processor number" feature in the BIOS, yet I still have the problem from time to time...sometimes a couple of weeks...sometime twice in one day. This message hits event viewer as a benign INFO entry, not warning or error. I can find no info on this anywhere on the MSoft support areas. Since there are 6 of them, I'm including the full error text of the first only:

Answer:Compatibility check on new gaming machine -- first PC build

Personally I wouldn't blow money on an i7-980 1366 based system. Enthusiast level Sandy Bridge products are scheduled before the end of the year and AMD Bulldozer CPUs should be competitive as well, even the 1155 socket Sandy bridge systems are giving very similar performance to that Gulftown processor for a lot less money. I'd rather put the money into better video cards. Also 24Gb of ram is excessive. 8-16Gb is as much as I'd recommend for gaming. If you have other planned uses for the machine then you might have reason to put that much ram in it, otherwise cut back on the ram to at least 16Gb and invest the money into an SSD drive for OS and current games to be stored on. That improves boot speed and loading times for games. Don't think there should be a problem with the H50 in that case. As long as there is clearance between the rear exhaust fan mounting position and the CPU positioning for the radiator and fan to fit then you are good to go.

Just upgraded to W10 from 8.1 and I'm getting apparently random Freezes without BSOD and sometimes BSOD Machine Check Exception.

The problem already happened 3-4 times on Windows 8.1. Somehow I thought it could be related to CPU temp, so I opened up the case and cleaned it. No significant dirt found...

I also read somewhere that it could be related to using the laptop with the battery. So, I removed the battery and it seams to be fine for a while.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
PC

Hey all.

I've tried being a nice net-citizen. I did a bunch of searches, yes including this forum. I know there have been a LOT of these on here (machine check error blue screens). Read the advice, trying to figure out what I can try next.


I am trying to fix a BSOD as a favor. The first time I had been up there I made some minor changes at startup in case it was a software conflict he didn't need to load anyway. I also ran memtest and it came up fine. Couldn't do much more at the time and it seemed to be booting fine, so I left. A few days later he calls and says it started happening again. I brought the system to my place and have been looking at it here. It will now almost never load into XP (where it apparently had been working fine a few days after I went up). So it seems to have somehow gotten worse over time.


The now:

This thing is so unstable it will almost never get past flashing up the XP loading screen a second or two - lots of times dumps before that. Once I got to the desktop, but before finishing loading it, it dumped. This is the same for both normal and safe mode. So I can not boot this thing.


What I've done:

Ran Memtest - it's fine.

Actually replaced the two sticks with a third stick that's in there now - same BSOD.

Swapped in a new PSU - same BSOD.

Swapped out the HD to another system. This results NOT in the same BSOD, but the system hangs at a black screen before the windows loading screen comes... Read more

Answer:Machine Check BSOD - Advice on Next Thing?

OK, maybe this was too long. Let me shorten it.


Is it possible a Machine Check Error BSOD (that is supposed to say "hardware" is the cause) to be caused by a driver issue?


If so, is there any possible way to fix this if the system can no longer be booted? The BSOD comes up before any mode of windows XP will load or finish loading.

I have a Toshiba Salelite P205D running Windows 7 64-bit. Have an AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile Technology TL-60 2.00GHz processor. 2 GB of ram. ATI Radeon X1200 series graphics card. Realtek RTL8101E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC.

When my computer goes into hibernation, sleep, or the screen saver comes on is when I have the issue. After starting it up after one of the three happens, it will completely freeze up. I have to do a hard shutdown to bring it back up. After it comes back up, it works great untill it does one of the above three things.

Some of the troubleshooting I did: I ran a memory test, which ran 21 passes and no errors. I udated the bios to the newest version. I do not overclock or anything like that. I have not made any bios changes or anything like that. I ran a HD diagostic.

Below is what my event viewer is showing. I never actually see a Blue Screen.

Hello tenforums users! I've been getting a lot of random BSODs since last week but I couldn't tell what was the issue. I've read about the error on the Internet and from what I understand from those, Machine Check Exception will occur to drivers issue, hardware issues (CPU or RAM). I've checked the RAM sticks in my PC (booting with only 1 stick and switching slots every time BSOD happens), changing the thermal compound in case of bad conduction, but still no luck. I've also reformatted the Windows partition and the BSOD occurred not long after it booted up. Windows ran fine in Safe Mode for about an hour. Any help would be appreciated! This is my first time using tenforums so I will try my best to follow the rules of posting. Cheers. DESKTOP-VUK87C3-Mon_10_10_2016_223559_98.zip

also i should mention because im sure it has something to do with it. my microphone was very buggy on ventrilo, everyone who was on the server complained it was scratchy. my audio program that came with my drivers popped up saying something like "only one device at a time" and then my computer froze and went to the bsod. i rebooted, it opened up, the sound was very scratchy, it froze and rebooted again to the same bsod. i rebooted a 3rd time, it opened up fine, sound works perfectly. any idea? do things like this just happen sometimes? or do i have a serious problem?

How do I disable all attempts to check fingerprints in Win 7 pro 64bit on a Probook 450g3? I bought this notebook to replace an older probook which was also running windows 7 pro. It is for my 84 year old mom who does NOT deal well with any changes in her computing environment. I don't want the danged Biometric device not found error. I don't want to teach her to replace her password with a fingerprint check. I don't want the bleeping fingerprint device or its related software AT ALL. I just want the bootup sequence to be exactly the same as it was with her old win 7 pro probook laptop. In this case and her age, new is NOT better. New is just an obstacle to use!

I've had my computer blue-screen off-and-on for the last year.

It started happening badly when I got a new video card, a GeForce 4 MX w/ 64 MB and started playing games (Diablo II & Halo).

I've subsequentially taken the card out (using onboard video) and playing games on my laptop.

Still, every now and then I get the blue-screen for no rhyme or reason.

My two error reports:
Machine Check Exception
Device Driver

I think from these two analyses, my CPU is overheating. I've run a program from MSI called Cooler XP which is designed to run the CPU at a lower temperature.

When playing Halo, my CPU would get to be around 60 deg C, and maybe 54-58 deg C with Cooler XP running. My CPU is a AMD Athlon XP 2000+ (1.7 Ghz). I have all the latest drivers and firmware.

Please help or give suggestions!

HP Pavilion 513c, Celeron 1.8, 256 RAM.

This thing was riddled with spyware (still not 100% clean, but that's another thread....).
The machine would reboot every so often when idle--the owner called it random, so I ran a windebug on the minidump files--there were about 70 a day!
All returned a 9c machine check exception pointing to hardware. I've attached 2 debuglogs-they're all quite similar.

I then arranged the minidumps in detail view, sorted by Date Modified-lo and behold, every 15 minutes, then every 16 minutes, then 15, then 16, and so on.
The errors stopped when I was running anti-malware scans and removal tools, then started again when I left the machine for an hour.

I would expect more random timing from RAM or processor...and more errors when the hardware was under load-

Any clues? I'm howling at the moon with frustration....
