    Need more info on your system. that error is usually for a motherboard failure or the pressor or ram has failed. Make sure the memory and pci cards are seated properly.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Here is the meaning of your bugcheck code.

    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, this is almost certainly a hardware failure of some description.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions. If that doesn`t help, you will need to try and diagnose what component is faulty.

    This will involve disconnecting anything not required to run your system. If you still have the problem, then you`ll know that it`s one of the remaining hardware components that`s faulty.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
