    BC Code: 9C (0x0000009C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION) is a hardware related error. Is the system overclocked, and which OS are you running (XP SP3 I assume)?

    you may have memory problems, run memtest and see

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, XP SP3. Yes, it is overclocked but it passes a long prime95 test. I checked ram with Memtest 86+ overnight immediately after I built the box but not since overclocking. However, the memory is running at the stock frequency.

    This is an HTPC box and the crash happened while watching ESPN3. I am using the onboard video with a passively cooled stock heatsink on a Foxconn 740G based board. Could this be the problem? IGP overheating? However, after the crash I restarted and have been watching ESPN3 without more problems for a considerably longer time than when the crash occurred.

    I lowered the starting ram frequency from the stock DDR2 800 to DDR2 666 before I started to overclock. After overclocking the result was DDR2 800.

    Actually, I found the problem. I ran Prime and one core dropped out after 1 hr. So I bumped up the vcore a little and ran it for 5 hrs. with no errors. I've seen this before, that overclock settings that were originally stable no longer carry the mail after a while.

    Looks like unstable processor core. Sorry.

    Looks like you require more Vcore or lower the core frequencies.
