    New Machine crashing with BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa80051fb0


    I have a new Dell Inspiron One 2020 that crashes on my every day. When I run the dump through WinDBG it is pointing to a hardware issue and when I run a hardware diag it doesn't find any issues.

    Here is some initial info from the dump:

    WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
    A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
    source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
    WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
    Arg2: fffffa80051fb038, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
    Arg3: 00000000be200000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
    Arg4: 000000000005110a, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.


    I have a full dump file that gets produced each time it crashes. Looks like it is too large to upload to the forum. I am attaching the SF Diagnostic tool info instead.
    If anyone can help me diagnose this issue it would be much appreciated!

    I am new to this forum and I must say I think it is awesome what you people do providing help like this to people. Thank you!

    Have you run RAM diagnostics? How about temperatures? If new, also check all the internal cables and board seating.

    Software wise, run sfc /scannow and DISM if sfc says it can't fix problems.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8[1]=Performance%20Maintenance

    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8[1]=Performance%20Maintenance

    The more I think about this, it looks like a memory problem.
