My pc was running fine for a long time

recently however its been acting up.


out of the blue the monitors keyboard/mouse/headset turn off while the PC keeps running

Only thing that gets me back is a full reset


in event viewer the only error im getting is:

A corrected hardware error has occurred.



Reported by component: Processor Core

Error Source: Corrected Machine Check

Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error

Processor APIC ID: 0



The details view of this entry contains further information.


recently its been doing this about every 20-25minutes


Im kind of at the end of my rope as to what it is

My specs are:



AMD RYZEN 5 1600 6-Core 3.2 GHz (3.6 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1600BBAEBOX

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 GAMING 08G-P4-6775-KR,

8GB GDDR5 iCX - 9 Thermal Sensors & RGB LED G/P/M


Thanks for the help...Most of this should still be under warranty if its a hardware issue..

I never overclocked or messed with bios either


Also the temps seem fine...
