Windows 7: Blue Screen after leaving room and returning - Now will not Boot

13 Jul 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Yes, my thoughts exactly. If your crashes occur during task loads then it must be hardware related to actual use. Like I said, it's probably not the CPU but more than likely is your RAM.

I doubt at this point that Corsair or whatever retailer you bought the RAM from will RMA it at this point, but if they do or you get another kit of the same size then you'll actually have completed an upgrade to maybe 10-12 GB while troubleshooting.

If you have another PC perhaps you can test some of your components with it. The PSU would be easy enough to test, though it doesn't seem like the cause. Maybe you have a friend with a similar setup who could test your RAM or let you borrow theirs to try?

None of my friends are gamers or computer users..haha. I have my old PC at work but the Power Supply is not modular so it would be a pain to take out (though possible if necessary)

The RAM in this same PC is not 240 pin DDR3 and will not fit.

Well, I bought new RAM, put them in and started windows install, it immediately crashed. That narrows that out. I almost bought a PSU while I was there but didn't wanna spend 200 bucks. My 850W I use gold only, modular, they are 150-200 bucks for the type I use :\

I really hope it is not the's such a hassle to remove EVERYTHING for the motherboard. At least the RAM was in and out and I can return it.

I have a Corsair HX850 which has Overvoltage protection and is supposed to be really good..I sure wouldn't think that would be my problem. I am going to take this RAM back but not sure which component to check next. CPU? It is expensive..and I don't know if you can return it once you paste it... ugh...I am so frustrated.

The one component that the 0x9C and 0x124 have in common is the CPU. That is not to say other problems cannot cause those errors in tandem, but the CPU has the highest likelihood.

In Windows Vista and later operating systems, this bug check occurs only in the following circumstances.
  • WHEA is not fully initialized.

  • All processors that rendezvous have no errors in their registers.
For other circumstances, this bug check has been replaced with bug Check 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR in Windows Vista and later operating systems.

For more information about Machine Check Architecture (MCA), see the Intel or AMD Web sites.
The above quote was taken from Bug Check 0x9C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION.

Let us know if the CPU replacement definitely solves the problem. Post back when you are confident one way or the other as to whether the problem is indeed solved. :)

Windows 7 64bit

I didn't have my DVD book with me last night so I didn't get a chance to install my software, run some games, programs, tests. However, before I could not even finish a windows install...period..and I tried 20 or more times.

This time, installed fine, booted fine, I rebooted, shutdown, about 10-15 times..all seems well. I made sure I have no overclocking features (aside from "Turbo" mode that is the default of the Asus motherboard) etc etc. My CPU temps stable at around 45 (though I will test under load).

Seem to have been the issue. I will report back this weekend when I get it all set up.

I'm glad everything seems to be working at this point, though it's unfortunate that such an expensive component needed replacement.

I would check out the following link which references Intel's warranty and see if you can have them cover the cost of your replacement:

Hey Emaraszek, thanks! I actually did an RMA this was still warranty and I am shipping it back. I returned the one I bought to the store and got a refund.

Will report back when I get my new CPU and confirm that all is working.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Fantastic! I'm glad it worked out, replacing those processors out of pocket is not fun
