Kernel-WHEA (Event ID 12) - Vista Business
Hi All,

I am getting random hangs in Vista. Requires a hard reboot.

Nothing appears on the event log at the time of the hang (i guess
because it never gets a chance to write to the event log).

I have taken out unessecary hardware, no difference.

The only thing I can see on the event log is an Error thats regularly
occuring during boot:

Kernel-WHEA (Event ID 12)
Machine Check event reported is a fatal Bus or Interconnect timeout
error.

Memory Hierachy Level: 3
Participation: 2
Request Type: 0
Memory/IO: 0
Address: 3422552064 (but the address varies)

I am running an ASUS board P5VDC-MX on Vista Business. Have not
updated bios yet, thats next, and I am also gonna try with one RAM
module removed at a time.

Any other ideas?

Cheers

-Al

The only kb article that turns up concerns cpu errors:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/889249
Obviously, if you were to take out the cpu the error would go away.
It appears from the article that the OS is involved in that it logs the
event but that the underlying event is not an OS event.
