Machine check while in kernel mode
Crash CPU:00 Primary CPU:00 Active CPUs:0000003
Current Process = PP
Current PSB ID +00000001
Image Name = $3$DKA606:[PAYROLL][DLC.BIN]

The Answer is :

  This appears to be a hardware error -- machine check errors are
  normally and commonly hardware errors, though there is the rare
  possibility that a low-level software error can generate one.
  Please contact your hardware service organization for assistance.
