I have got this issue today.Actually it happened yesterday once but nothing happened after that.My computer (Windows XP Home)will randomly crash and show the BSOD.The message says"MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION." and 0000000009 (forgot the rest.)
I got this a few weeks back but fixed it by updating my graphics drivers.However the problem resurfaces and the solution does not work.Even now in Safe mode my entire screen hangs(including the cursor.).Help appreciated.

Oh,I like to add that my computer was moved to another of my room and back to its original place again.

This error most commonly 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). A couple of things to try:

Open your computer case and make sure all the fans are spinning okay and that there isn't an excessive amount of dust in there that would impede air flow. See the following Bleeping Computer tutorial for guidance on cleaning inside your computer: Cleaning the Interior of your PC

Test your RAM using Memtest86.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
