Windows 7: Lenovo Z510 Cache Hierarchy Error

22 Jun 2014   #1

Lenovo Z510 Cache Hierarchy Error

Like two days ago or so, I've installed Dragon Age: Origins by Bioware. Everything was fine, I created my character, completed my first quest then suddenly my laptop turned off. Since that, every time I try to play something (eg. StarCraft 2, Skyrim) my laptop randomly turns off without warning. I tried uninstalling Dragon Age but it didn't really help.
I googled the problem, and I found that I should look it up in the Event Viewer (Windows 7 Ultimate x64).
Every time it turns off I get three errors:

Event 18, WHEA-Logger
A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor ID: 0

Any ideas, suggestions why this is caused? Or how to fix it?

According to that log, it looks like your processor is dying. That is very rare however. Usually hardware failings can be caused by extremely high temperatures.

There are 3 causes of laptops shutting off:

-High temps
-Bad power cable/battery
-bad processor/ram

Use speccy to see what your temps are and post a screenshot here of it:

After the screenshot the CPU's temp jumped down to 48-51C and it remained there.

Your laptop is very hot. It is shutting down to save itself.

Power it down. And use electronically safe dust spray to clear out the vents.

When the dust and grime is really bad, it may require taking the unit apart for cleaning.

This video here seems to show how to dissect your model. (Its not an exact match but very similar.)
