» close window

The Question is:

Getting a BADMCKCOD, bad machine check code error and system reboot at what
 seems irregular (but frequent) intervals; even when machine is unused.

The Answer is :

  Please contact your hardware support organization, as machine checks
  are typically indicative of hardware problems (though can occasionally
  also indicate bugs in kernel-mode software).
