What is this error?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just added a hard drive to my PC and my PC was working fine and still is but I received a BSOD which said MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. The STOP code was 0x0000009C

I also heard a hard drive shutdown after the POST and before the Windows XP splash screen but before the XP desktop loaded up I got the BSOD.

The hard drive was perfectly fine in my old PC. Its a 200GB Maxtor DiamondMax 10 and is hooked up to secondary slave on the IDE.

What could the problem be?

Its only happened once so far.

Thanks.

Machine check exceptions are frequently caused by one of the following conditions:
•You are running the processor or mainboard beyond its specifications. For example, you are overclocking the processor or bus. We recommend that you run your hardware at the manufacturer-rated speeds.
•Noisy power, overstressed power strips, outmatched power supplies and failing power supplies can destabilize your computer. Make sure that you have a stable, reliable power supply to your computer.
•Extreme thermal conditions caused by the failure of cooling devices such as fans may damage your computer. Make sure that your cooling devices are all working.
•You have damaged memory or memory that is not the correct type for your computer. If you recently changed the memory configuration, revert to the previous configuration to determine what is wrong. Make sure that you are using the correct memory for your computer.
