Hi all. Apologies for the long post. I don't know if anyone can help me, but I am having problems and am unable to find the reason. A couple of months ago I started having occasional boot-up problems. As the pc was just about ready to load my desktop I would get either a black or light
blue screen. The pc would reboot after a few seconds and windows would load fine. Sometimes (not always)I would get a dump file (attached), other times I would get in the event log the message - event 18 WHEA logger - A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor ID: 1
This only happens on average once every 3/4 days and only on boot. It doesn't happen during surfing, gaming or any other time. I have ran Furmark for 2 hours with no problems, done multiple memtest passes without errors, and ran orthos and OCCT for hours with no errors. My system is not overclocked at all. I tried doing a clean install of windows but the error returned. I have also attached the bootlog text file as well as mini dumps. Any advice as to what to try next would be most welcome. thanks...
