    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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 the above. A bugcheck of 9C, is almost always caused by faulty hardware.

    Start, by going HERE and following the instructions.

    Hi,

    Your hardware error code is _VAL_UC_EN_PCC_BUSCONNERR_30F which means time out of Bus and Interconnect Error.

    The time out which maybe caused by IDE Drive, M/B or RAM. If yoi overclock the CPU, change it to factory value. Downclock the ram may resolve the machine error problem.
