Processor related system failure?

By MrPaul
Mar 8, 2007
  1. Debug analysis in .txt file format.. What should I make of this? Is it the processor that is causing the error, or is simply relaying the message?

     Debugging Details:
       NOTE:  This is a hardware error.  This error was reported by the CPU
       via Interrupt 18.  This analysis will provide more information about
       the specific error.  Please contact the manufacturer for additional
       information about this error and troubleshooting assistance.
       This error is documented in the following publication:
          - IA-32 Intel(r) Architecture Software Developer's Manual 
            Volume 3: System Programming Guide

    VAL   - MCi_STATUS register is valid
            Indicates that the information contained within the IA32_MCi_STATUS
            register is valid.  When this flag is set, the processor follows the
            rules given for the OVER flag in the IA32_MCi_STATUS register when
            overwriting previously valid entries.  The processor sets the VAL 
            flag and software is responsible for clearing it.
    UC    - Error Uncorrected
            Indicates that the processor did not or was not able to correct the 
            error condition.  When clear, this flag indicates that the processor
            was able to correct the error condition.
    EN    - Error Enabled
            Indicates that the error was enabled by the associated EEj bit of the
            IA32_MCi_CTL register.
    PCC   - Processor Context Corrupt
            Indicates that the state of the processor might have been corrupted
            by the error condition detected and that reliable restarting of the
            processor may not be possible.
    BUSCONNERR - Bus and Interconnect Error   BUS{LL}_{PP}_{RRRR}_{II}_{T}_err
            These errors match the format 0000 1PPT RRRR IILL
       Concatenated Error Code:
       This error code can be reported back to the manufacturer.
       They may be able to provide additional information based upon
       this error.  All questions regarding STOP 0x9C should be
       directed to the hardware manufacturer.

    PS: I've done 32 passes of Memtest86+ without any results, also tried reseating and switching RAM.

    It claims to be crashing at intelppm.sys, which is, I think, a processor driver. The 0x9c thinger seems to be saying that it is actually a hardware problem though. I think it's probably a bad processor, but somebody else needs to back me up on that before I can say for sure.

    Are you receiving the error directly upon startup, or is it shortly thereafter?? Any post beeps on startup?
