[RESOLVED]NEW POWER SUPPLY>>NF4 U-D Machine Check Exception

Recommended Posts

I just installed WinXP x64 on my Lanparty NF4 Ultra motherboard w/ 3000+ AMD64 proc. I am running 2x 512MB Ram (Corsair I think). I installed a new DVD burner, and, without installing any drivers, tried to read a CD off it. The machine instantly BSODed w/ MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION ( KB 329284). I restarted and everything was peachy. Then, a few hours later, I returned to my computer and it was BSODed again (same error). When I restarted, it BSOD'ed a few seconds after the Windows Logo came up and instantly restarted itself. It has done this every time. I tried to boot into safe mode, but it froze on apcitab1.dat every time.

 

Figuring Windows had just messed itself up, I tried installing gentoo, but it dropped w/ a kernel panic as I was unpacking a portage snapshot.

 

Clearly, I have a hardware failure somewhere in my system, but I have no idea how to figure out what it is. I have run memtest86 for a couple of hours, with no errors. I am currently running it again and will do so till tomorrow just to rule memory out completely. I tried booting with only one cdrom, to make sure I wasn't taxing my powersupply, but it failed the same way.

 

Help please!

Windows XP x64 has nothing to do with it. I am having some sort of hardware failure. I can't even install Windows XP or Linux without it locking up on me.

Sorry, I assumed that since when I created my account it asked me about all the stuff it added it automaically. I didn't check. It should be there now.

A freind of mine just went through the same ordeal...MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

 

It ended up being his PSU. It wasnt a cheepie either, it was a zippy 500w.

So you might want to try swapping out PSU's if you can borrow one.

Since the power supply and the memory are the two most important things in a configuration it seems; I had hoped he would at least put the power supply in signature as that was the main thing I wanted to get a look at. The old days of generic power supplies that don't have any real ooomph is gone with these boards for sure.

same thing happened to me once i went back to stock from an overclocked state for some reason. id get that machine_check.. and then a lockup. what appeared to have cured it, is installing realtek's ac97 codec driver instead of nvidia's audio driver.

 

try that. this is assuming you have and use audio on the board.

I have an Antec TruePower 300 Watt. I noticed the note on PSU's when I joined the forum, so I am ordering a new one from NewEgg.

Unfortunately, I am completely locked out of Windows, and it happened with Linux, so it isn't a driver problem. Plus, I have never overclocked.

 

Since it locked up first with the DVD drive, I think it might be my secondary IDE controller. I hope it is just my PSU.

I just placed an OverNight order w/ NewEgg for the SeaSonic S12-600. It seemed to be the popular pick over at Ars Technica, and it more than meets the requirements.
