Thanks John!

No difference however. I passed nohpet to the kernel last night and still received an mce: See the last (5:03 am) entry in:

Listmates,

Latest MCE has the following text with a new twist. The Address referenced by MCE can't be resolved by mcelog? What? The address is ffff802ac930 and the report is "No matching memory address found for ffff802ac930 in SMBIOS" I'm still no closer to figuring out what is going on.

Current boot parameters: noapic, nolapic with manual irq selected in the BIOS.

Does this mean anything to anyone??


Hi David, in order to make any real sense of this problem you need to attach a remote debugger to your kernel. The info from mcelog, tells you that there is something there but it can't tell you what it is. I am guessing it is an interrupt vector pointing to a random memory location and it is to do with video. I'm looking for a suitable debugger and I will post my results. If anyone else knows more please help, my knowledge of linux is not that great yet.
Regards
Dave Plater
