Preferred Solution: machine-check-exception on vista 32 machine

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.)

Answer: machine-check-exception on vista 32 machine

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

Hal.dll is the hardware abstraction layer
It means your overclock is too unstable to function properly.

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

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:

The nVidia WDM TVAudio Crossbar service failed to start due to the following error:

Answer:machine check exception - hd the cause?

what's your system setup like? a lot of people have had blue screen issues with the NVIDIA IDE drivers and IDE hard drives or optical drives.

i had problems with machine check exceptions after i accidentally installed the NVIDIA IDE drivers. i had to completely uninstall and reinstall everything without the IDE drivers to get everything working right again.

0x0000009C (0x000000000, 0xB8344050, 0xB2000040, 0x00000800)

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.......

Answer:Machine Check Exception

I wonder if your PSU has sufficient power to handle the amerage drawn by your computer.
What is the model number of your power supply?
Is your CPU or memory overclocked in any way?

Are you getting the blue screen in safe mode as well? Try running safe mode for several hours and let's see what happens.

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

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!

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.

Howdy All,

For a long time now I've been plagued with problems whist using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit.

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.

i tended to get those in one of two ocasions....first would be when i over clocked my ram to far and the voltage was set to high....also i have my HD in RAID 0 when i added a certain fan it drawed to much power from my cpu and my system was crashing due to lack of power, what power supply do u have?

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

UPDATE: A few minutes after posting this while not gaming I had another BSOD the code was WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.

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.

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:

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.

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?

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.

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

Hi Im running:

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.

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).

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'

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.

----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.

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?

Post back if you need more help....

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, 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...

Note: You will most likely find in the file attached to this post that one of the minidump files reads the APC Index Mismatch BSOD. That one barely happens, it usually happens if I make radical changes, ... Read more

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.

Can anyone help figure this one out?

Last night Defender was updated. No new hardware installed.
This morning the machine freezes and I've also had a BSOD with 'Machine check exception' error.

Experienced similar freezes last week with a 'Driver power state failure' error but I solved it by updating the wifi drivers.

It seems that both times I've managed to stall the inevitable freeze by removing the power supply and the battery for a few minutes between restarts.

Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

Double click the executable to open itClick on the button shown below

If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window

Hey Guys,

As the title says, I keep running into a BSOD when trying to launch/ play Dota2. The computer freezes up and the audio keeps making a repeating noise. I have reset my laptop last night (deleted all the other files) and only downloaded the latest Nvidia driver and steam+ dota2. I spoke with a Microsoft agent, and they used remote access to check things out, and informed me that it is my memory. I ran the memory diagnostic tool, and it showed up issues. I also went out and bought new memory, and it is still doing the same thing.

Thanks in advance!

Hey all was wondering if anyone is having this problem as well. First my machine is an older one, mainly use it for watching movies and downloading, surfing, etc. Anyhow, recently I have been getting the BSOD Machine Check Exception 0x9C at random times. The only times I have been getting this is when watching a few episodes of shows on Windows Media Player but it either happens from the first 10mins of watching or hours later.

Now I have done some research and some says it may be RAM or my HDD's. I have done tests on my RAM and it was fine, scanned my HDD with scandisk and I think my primary hdd is fine(is there a way to check the last scan results)?

My system specs:
Gigabyte GA-K8U-939
AMD Athlon X2 3800+
WinXP Pro SP3
2GB Ram
ATI 4650 512MB AGP
SB Audigy
WD3200AAKS-0 (primary)
WD2500JD-98H (secondary)

Any suggestions as to what it could be and what I could do to find out what is causing the BSOD, Hardware, Software?

Thanks,
Afrowookie

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....

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!

Answer:BSOD Machine-check exception - Log file attached

There are no memory dumps in your log - see if you have a file named "memory.dmp" in the \Windows directory. If not, configure your machine for a kernel dump. After the next crash you can zip it up, post it to an external site, and then link here for analysis.

Hi members

My system has windows xp and it used to restart automatically. After I disable automatic restart I got BSOD 00000009C. My system is around 7 years old and by doing google search I found that it may have something to do with the CPU temperature.

Any thoughts on this would be helpful.

Thanks
Gilbert.

 

Answer:Blue Screen 0×0000009C Machine check exception

Hiya Gilbert.

It could certainly be caused by overheating, especially if it hasn`t been cleaned of dust for a while.

Take the side of the case off and give it a blow-out with an air-gun or can of compressed air which are (should be) available from your local computer shop and/or car accessory outlet ... maybe even B & Q or Wickes as well.

Pay particular attention to the fans on the PSU, graphics card and of course, CPU heatsink but don`t forget the hard drive area too as that can also accumulate dust and debris and cause some very odd behaviour.

Depending on how technical or brave you are, it`d be worth taking the CPU out, cleaning the mating faces where it makes contact with the heatsink, put a new blob of thermal compound on it and reassemble, not forgetting to re-connect the CPU fan !

Hi,

Did the constant restarts occur after you performed a Start up Repair?

If so, it sounds like your machine is in a Start up Infinity Repair Loop,
follow this tutorial if that is the case:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/139576-startup-repair-infinite-loop-recovery.html

If this is not the case then follow this tutorial:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/219533-troubleshooting-windows-7-failure-boot.html

Does the issue exist in Safe-mode?

The error 0x0000009c is usually related to a hardware issue. Similar to a STOP 0x124.
It may result from overheating, or from failed hardware - RAM, CPU, PSU, etc.
Also overclocking can cause that paticular error too.

I would suggest you check the hardware settings in your bios, starting with the RAM,
and restore default settings. Ensure there's no overheating of the system. If your overclocking....STOP.

Also please follow this tutorial:

Since the 1st of this month, I've been getting Machine check exceptions randomly after booting from 3-4mins to up to 30-40mins after initial boot. This computer hasn't had any hardware changes for almost an entire year since I've built it nor has there been any BSOD until a few days ago.

What I've tried:A motherboard BIOs update as well as a CMOS reset and default settings in the motherboard.Opening the case and using compressed air to clean the machine.Reseating the ram and the CPU stock cooler(I didn't take out the CPU)I went to my motherboard site and updated all the drivers on there.I've tried system restore but there is no improvement.I've tried Driver Verifier and I got a BSOD for "Driver_Verifier_iomanager_violation" using whocrashed says its the driver iomap64.sys.
What I've haven't tried:mem86+ test.
A full virus scan of my system(PC keeps BSODing before the scan can finish).

Notes: Safemode with networking works fantastically with no errors.
The only recent hardware change is between a Poker3 mech keyboard to an old dell kb212 keyboard and back.
I'll appreciate it if someone can take a look at my drivers and dump logs.

Answer:Regular BSOD when using computer, MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION 0x9c

WHEA error for a MCE fault
This could point to hardware problem with your CPU but more often also motherboard software and monitoring software can cause this kind of BSODs.





In this case it's an internal unclassified error, which means it's not publicly documented (which is ironic given it's "unclassified"). However, yes, it's clear you're dealing with an internal CPU fault and not one that could be generated by bus issues or any other external factor other than heat and voltage. Though make dead sure motherboard software isn't interfering; sometimes mobo software will generate CPU faults of this sort because of bugs in their CPU drivers.
Other than that, no, there's really nothing else you can retrieve from this.

Hi all im new here,Grab yourself a coffee / tea this is a long one !

For the last 2 weeks my computer which is circa 3 years old is starting to crash quite abit. I am due an upgrade and was going to sell off some bits, but I am having trouble working out which peice of my hardware is causing problems, thus not wanting to buy new kit when the old kit is not faulty.

The i7 920 is overclocked to 3.5ghz alkas nero cooler, v core is 1.26v, cpu temp on idle is 39 - 45 degrees, running Arma 2 it moves up to circa 56 degrees. Motherboard is an Asus P6T6WS revolution with the latest bios. Graphics card is XFX 295 GTX, with latest drivers.

Then :
The problem started when the computer used to randomly freeze (Mainly just as the welcome screen comes up) Then apon reboot id notice my Graphics card drivers disappered and that I had to reisntall them.

I decided to do a format, and after about 3 installation attempts (One attempt ended in my screen going RED tint colour) to get a fresh installation.
I opened up the computer and gave everthing a real clean, this seemed to cure the Red screen issue. As well as a bios reflash

Hello dirtbag.

upgrade the network driver: Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC. It goes back to Thu Feb 26 14:34:13 2009. And most of the error entries are associated with it.

Download the network card driver from manufactuer's website Realtek
Then reinstall the driver:
Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Menu Search box and press Enter.
Double click to expand "Network adaptors".
Right click your network card and click Uninstall.
Check "Delete driver software for this device" check box, click OK.
Restart the computer
If windows does not auto configure the appropriate drivers at startup, install the downloaded one manually.
Anyway, your dump says:

Hello everyone

I have been dealing with a BSOD issue for awhile now and have been unable to pinpoint the issue.

From my research I have learned a Machine Check Exception is normally a Driver or Hardware issue.

In the past I have fully updated all my drivers and have done a CPU stability check as with an all night RAM stability check without any issues being detected.

I have not done any overclocking on my machine, though It is a home built computer. I do know that the temperature is very stable and well I'm not sure what else to say.

I have attached my DM_Log dump from the DM Log Collector. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide.

Thank you all for at the very least reading my post.

Hey folks,

New user here. Just updated my laptop, a Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon, to 1.26/1.19 bioses, from the Lenovo website. After the BIOS updated, my PC rebooted and immediately BSODed with 0x0000009C (0x0000000000000006, 0xFFFFF880009EEB30, 0x00000000FE000000, 0x0000000000801136).

I am unable to do anything- system repair, safe mode, etc. I also do not have a CD drive on this machine so no OEM repair either! I am typing this from my phone.. Also got a new job where I need this baby and majorly worried now. If anyone can please help, I would be greatly appreciative.
Thanks in advance.

Answer:BSOD errors Machine Check Exception and Clock Watchdog Timeout

Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and analysts won't try it.
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Hello all,

Been dealing with the error for quite some time and haven't figured out how to fix it. So here I am with your expert help.

I am typically playing WoW but this has happened with other games as well, that everything just freezes and then I get the BSOD.

Any help is super appreciated because at this point I am just thinking of building a brand new PC with hopes it goes away lol.

Thank you all!

Answer:BSOD playing World of Warcraft: Machine Check Exception Error

All the dumps are the same:


Code:
MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION (9c)
A fatal Machine Check Exception has occurred.

From an older thread in 2014: Stop 0x00009C. Suggestions made by Patrick Barker still apply today. Most likely cause is a defective CPU.


Code:
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 - Speccy - System Information - Free Download

2. Clear your CMOS (or load optimized BIOS defaults) to ensure there's no improper BIOS setting - How to Clear CMOS (AKA Reset Bios Settings)

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.

Are you over-clocking at all? If so, set all clock values to nominal (normal) and see if that helps.

Hi all,

In the past few months I've added a 512 stick of RAM and replaced the hard drive in my five year old laptop with a brand new Seagate Momentus. The laptop itself is a Pentium M 1.8 running Windows XP Home (Service Pack 3). Also in the past few months I've started receiving BSOD's for Machine Check Exception errors. The numbers tend to vary, though I can never catch one long enough to write them down, as the system flashes the error screen and then shuts off or reboots.

I've run MemTest as recently as this afternoon and the results came back with no errors found in the memory. I ran a SMART test from SpeedFan on the new HD and it was deemed perfectly fit. Still, I can't shake the feeling there's something going on with the new hardware in this laptop, as I had never even heard of a Machine Check Exception since I never got one until some time after installing the parts.

I notice I get this specific error when playing a computer game (Diablo 2, for Christ's sake, so the game isn't particularly taxing!) or watching video, ie intensive activities. It never happens while just browsing the net. I am not overclocking the processor. In fact, I'm undervolting it to keep heat down, though I've turned off Notebook Hardware Control to go back to normal voltage setting and I still get the Machine Check Exception errors with the same frequency.

Sometimes the machine just hangs/freezes. I can make it hang if I copy files over a Workgroup network to another machine (This gives no errors in the event viewer). I was just on-line and it re-booted so I am writing this off-line.

Answer:Machine Check Exception, System hangs, halts, bluescreens, reboots randomly

how old is your hard drive? i kept getting blue screens once because one of my hd's had a bad sector that was unrepairable. everytime i put it under a load i would get the blue-screen-o-death. i might have dropped it, i dunno. they say if you drop a hard drive more than 2 feet it will more than likely be ruined. so after i took it out, i dropped it from a 3rd story balcony.

Question is: where, on the XP machines, do I find the shared folder(s) on the Vista machine? My Network Places does not mention the Vista machine folder(s). From the Vista machine I can see the other 2 XP's as well as the Access Point clicking on START > Network

Since adding the Access Point, I have lost Internet access on one XP. That is a story for another day.

I have a new Gateway Vista 64 machine for my office . The old HP Pavillion Pentium 4 with XP 32(?)is networked in other room Here's my setup:
Ethernet network with a new wireless Netgear router (yes,it has places to plug in the ethernet cords).
-HP Laserjet 1200 printer is plugged directly into the Vista 64 machine.
The XP Unit is on the network.
I can see and share files between the machines just fine but I get an error when choosing the networked printer in "add printer" when setting up XP unit.
(Print sharing is turned on on Vista Machine).
I choose the networked printer found on Gateway, it says that it will install drivers onto my machine to make things work, I click ok and it says that server for my printer has the wrong driver installed, would I like to find right driver? Clk yes. It looks for a VSFILE\XP but can't find it. It tells me to manually find the file but I can't find that file on HP site or any of my discs. I've uninstalled and reinstalled original drivers onto the XP machine (PCL6) and downloaded a Universal PCL5 printer file. None correct the problem. Vista automatically loaded the printer drivers when I turned on the power. It has a PCL5 file. The 1200 printer works fine when printing from Gateway machine.

Hi,
I've checked here and on a couple of other places; many people seem to have similar problems but not similar enough that I've been able to solve it.

I have a HOME workgroup on my Vista machine that is connected to the printer I want to share. I have made HOME the workgroup on my W7 laptop. The Vista machine is able to access folders on the W7 and the W7 "sees" the Vista machine... the network map on W7 shows a "dotted" line from W7 - Vista but when I try to connect from W7 to Vista it will not accept a logon. I have tried using my normal Vista machine User Name and password and even tried creating a new one just for this connection but Windows Security always says "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password".

One of the other sites suggested that Client for Microsoft Networks needed to be installed on the W7 laptop but when I checked the properties for the W7 NIC there was no Install option... does W7 need Client for Microsoft Networks?

All settings on the Vista Sharing and Discovery are on.

TIA

Answer:Windows 7 machine cannot connect to Vista machine

I finally figured out that it was Vista machine firewall (AT&T Internet Security Suite by MacAfee) that was blocking the W7 machine from accessing the Vista machine.

After I checked the box in Port and System Services to allow RDP access, I was able to access both the Vista computer and its attached printer from the W7 machine.

2) Is anyone aware of anyproducts, preferably shareware or freeware that can migrate both data/settings and programs from Win98 to Vista Home Premium?

Thanks

Answer:Moving from a Win98 machine to a Vista Machine

I don't imagine there are any software apps with that feature - any of them new enough to work with Vista would likely not bother with Win98. Data won't be hard to migrate, but I don't imagine Win98 programs would work the same on Vista... You will probably have to reinstall the programs - if they are compatible. (My CD burning software, for example, was compatible with XP but caused the PC to not boot when I tried to install it on Vista) Settings are probably going to be a lot different on Vista vs. Win98...

I have my first windows 7 computer on my home network, and it appears to me I have outgoing networking, but not incoming. On the Windows 7 computer, I can get to the router and the Internet, and can access shared folders on Vista machines on the home network. The computer name "advertising protocol" works as the name of the Windows 7 computer in the "Network" user interface on the Vista machines (the user interface accessed from Network and Sharing Center by 'view computers and devices"), but attempting to access it gets a "cannot access" error, and attmepting to diagnose gets a "cannot find" error. For whatever it is worth, highlighting the icon in the "network" user interface does not show anything for "location".

I am going through this to get shared folders on the Windows 7 computer visible on other computers on the network. Obviously this is not working. Just to recap the configuration:
1) all computers on the network are members of same Workgroup
2) My documents on the Windows 7 computer are shared read-write with everyone
3) advance sharing options show:
Network discovery ON
File and print sharing ON
Public folder sharing ON
128 bit encryption
Password protected sharing OFF
IPv6 disabled
Homegroup stuff either OFF or ON and managed by Windows (but this is irrelevant)

Answer:Cannot ping W7 machine from any vista machine

Why is IPv6 disabled? You do realize that IPv6 is only used on the LAN and is needed for Homegroups to work correctly. Maybe you were just thrown off by the first picture below which is only telling you that IPv6 is not connected to the WAN because it's not supposed to be.

The second picture shows it as enabled for the LAN.
It doesn't matter much either way unless you are Homegroup, but Homegroup only works with Windows 7 computers. For Vista and Win 7 you need to use either workgroup or public file sharing. You also need to enable file sharing on the Vista machine.

You should not need to turn the firewall off.

Are you sure that you are sharing the correct group. There is a seperate public file sharing settings page but the workgroup and homegroup use the same settings page.

Maybe you were thrown off because there are two settings pages. The third picture is the Homegroup and Workgroup settings page and the fourth one is for the Public file sharing.

Newbie to this forum, but extremely frustrated with BSOD for winxp SP2. Included attachements with System info, dmp file etc.

AMD 3700+ with MSI Neo 4 - nvidia 4 chipset motherboard. Swapped out OCZ RAM for Kingston just yesterday, as it was the last thing I could think of, after reading related posts. Still getting BSOD intermittently.
Installed new drivers on all devices...even rolled them back a couple weeks ago. Also recently removed IDE SW nvidia driver (paging?)and replaced with MS drivers - just a shot in the dark. Appears to be hardware issue, but run out of troubleshooting ideas - cpu temp is good, PS is 550w, memory switch had no impact.

Last error I get before BSOD in system event log is the IMAPI CD is in stopped state? I have 2 SATA drives that work fine. Also recently swapped out IDE HDD for SATA, thinking a fresh XP install would do the trick - ah wrong. Help would be good - before I through this #$%^ thing out the window.

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).
