Have a guy in the XP forum that is getting a MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION 0x0000009C. This is definitely hardware related and I'm completely out of ideas on how to help him. I am going to suggest he run memtest86 for 3-4 complete passes but was hoping some of you hardware oriented folks might take a look and possibly offer some ideas.

If you can, please look at http://www.geekstogo...60#entry1203160

This error can be caused by faulty memory or an overclocked processor running just beyond its means, or a faulty power supply.
Depending on what the computer is doing when the error occurs, you may be able to trace it to that particular component. So if it occurs during gaming, for example, I'd suspect graphics card.
