Re: Windows Event Viewer

Thanks. Now I am ready for Win10

For those who think getting OC is difficult: try WEV!

Re: Windows Event Viewer

OK Jim,


It is all this threads fault.

After taking a gander at this thread, I felt it was awhile since I checked my events. To my dismay I found 700+ warnings for the last 24 hours.
and over 9000+ warnings for the week.

Opening up detail .... I see a message that must take me back 30+ years...
The dreaded "machine check". I am only a PC hobby sort of guy... but my mainframe experience goes back decades.

In mainframe terms a "machine check" is broken hardware.

But in this case the detail reveals the errors were corrected.

And when they refer to a specific MCABANK ... my mind can only go towards memory.

Seems my ECC memory has been fixing up problems...
Could be cause recently I decided to step up the clock on this aging internet computer.

Brought the timings back to normal... Will see if the errors go away...
Keeping fingers crossed ... And will now have to make a habit of checking this blasted log.

I think that a lot of it has to do with programs not shutting down properly or checks getting bypassed at startup. All this might be due to ASUS cutting every corner possible to give the user a fast boot.

I bet if you re-enable all the hardware checking in BIOS, ran the memory bus at CPU specs (SPD), and disable CPU Turbo and OCing that events would decrease.

Another thing, does anyone shutdown while apps are still open? I do, especially IE browser. My PC shuts down in 3s and I doubt it is closing properly.

I always shutdown everything (well sometimes I miss something ...lol) and mine shutdowns really quick too...

Re: Windows Event Viewer

There is a lot of fault to go around with the errors in WEV. ASUS is a culprit, but the biggest is MS itself.

The continual stream of updates for security is a big factor. Nevertheless, there is a bunch of stuff going on under the hood and it's amazing that it all works!

Took me a while to get rid of errors and to properly interpret the warnings as benign or serious. Now that I am done, PC still runs the same.

Re: Windows Event Viewer

Close it down and never open it again.

If only I could.

Well the errors seem to have disappeared.
Probably caused by my OC'ing the memory.
