In most cases, the machine check exception error is a hardware error, compatibility error or low-level driver problem.
The HAL layer (Windows Hardware Abstraction Layer) is implemented in the Hal.dll. The HAL implements a number of functions that are implemented differently by different hardware platforms, which in this context refers mainly to the chipset.
Drivers can be a bug, but hard disk problems or anti-virus/anti-spyware/security products are as much the main cause as they can force a driver to corrupt or cross borders. The video driver or something that affects it would be very suspicious.
Ensure that drivers, BIOS and low-level chip set drivers are updated by manually checking with the system and device manufacturers.
Perform automatic repairs
You can use Windows 10 / USB installation discs to perform an automatic repair by creating a media creation tool. Use the link below to create the media tool.
Perform automatic repair:
- When your computer starts, wait until the manufacturer’s logo has enabled the boot menu option, usually F12.
- The start menu button may differ from one manufacturer to another. If you cannot find the start menu button, you can refer to the user manual.
- Reboot the computer when the manufacturer’s logo appears, press the boot menu option button to access the boot menu and change the boot option to a CD-ROM.
- After starting your computer with Windows 8 DVD or System Repair Disc, a black screen with gray text “Press any button to boot from CD or DVD” appears. Press any key.
- choose the right time and type of keyboard.
- Click Repair Computer in the lower left corner.
- Click Troubleshooting, click Advanced, and then click Auto Repair.
Disabling Intel SpeedStep Technology in BIOS
Few users have reported that disabling Intel SpeedStep technology in the BIOS fixes this problem, so you should try it. Before entering the BIOS, make sure that your motherboard manual contains detailed instructions on how to enter the BIOS and disable this feature.
Always check the Device Manager
to ensure that the version you are installing is actually displayed. This is because some drivers are reset before the last installation (especially sound drivers do), so install a driver – reboot – check if it is installed and repeat if necessary.
Checking the boot sequence in the BIOS
If the BIOS is configured to first list a hard disk other than the one on which your Windows copy is installed in the boot order, this could be the problem.
Note: If you have recently installed an internal hard disk, connected an external hard disk, made changes to the BIOS or flashed your BIOS, be sure to give it the correct weight!
