  • Hello... did you ever get any resolution with this error?  I am getting the same error on a new Toshiba Satellite A215 running vista home premium... Toshiba tech support was no help-- they just told me to turn off automatic updates and blamed the problem on microsoft without offering any resolution at all.

  • Micorosft Windows is reporting a Machine Check Excpetion which is a Hardware Error.

     

    This error was reported by WHEA - Windows Hardware Error Architecture

    http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/pnppwr/whea/default.mspx

     

    Memory hierarchy

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_hierarchy

    Defines Memory Hierarchy Level 1 (L1) cache – often accessed in just a few cycles, usually tens of kilobytes

    Level 1 is integrated directly into the CPU.

     

    If this were my machine and this error occured, I would make sure I wasn't letting the machine get to hot and then work with the hardware manufacturer if it didn't stop.
