    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.

    Regards Howard :)
