i'm not sure what caused it but I have been getting this machine check error for the last few days. I tried doing what the bluescreen told me too... but there is no f8 key to push only del, f9 which is gigabyte express recovery (i don't have the disk for it so it isn't installed :flowers: ) and f12 for viewing startup
This is the error i'm getting:


MACHINE_CHECK_ERROR
STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x805461F0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

I cannot pinpoint exactly where this started, all i know is that everytime I try and run a high intensity graphics game (Dark Age of Camelot, Star Wars Galaxies) this happens.

If i need to post any other info about my system please let me know. Most of the spec should be under my profile.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.





:thumbsup:

Here's a link to info on the STOP 0x9c error message: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x9c

As you can see, it's very generic - but since this occurs with games, I'd suspect your video card first thing (either bad/corrupt drivers, overheating, or hardware failure).

Well i checked the case and the video card was extremely warm... which is odd because it has a huge heat sink with its own fan <shrug>. It has trouble fitting into the slot and the actual circuit board is a bit loose where it connects to the metal that goes out the back of the computer. Do you think that replacing it would be the best option?

I would check to see if the fan on the video card is working, then I'd check the temperature of the card using a utility to see actually what's going on. I'd also update your video drivers to the latest version available from the video chipset manufacturer (ATI, nVidia, Intel, etc).

You may also want to check the card with a program such as the free version of SiSoft Sandra Lite ( http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/index.html?dir...n=sware_dl_3264 ) to see if it spots any problems.

After that, the next troubleshooting step would be to try another video card (but make sure you can return it if it's not the problem).
