Hardware error "mce"

Postby Froufroubizou » 2019-08-06 09:09

Hi,

I have an ASUS R541N computer on Debian 10 Buster, CPU is Intel Pentium N4200 1.10 GHz.

When it starts, I have the following messages (then they disappear and my laptop runs well... until it becomes unstable and shuts down, quite rarely luckily) :

Code: Select all
[0.615787] mce: [Hardware Error]: CPU 0: Machine Check: 0 Bank 4: a600000000020408
[0.615809] mce: [Hardware Error]: TSC 0 ADDR fef60780
[0.615819] mce: [Hardware Error]: PROCESSOR 0:506c9 TIME 1565084012 SOCKET 0 APIC 0 microcode 20


I am rather beginner so I don't know where to start. I have read that it could be an Intel driver installation problem.

What can I do ?

Thanks in advance,

FFB

Have you installed the intel-microcode package?

Check with
Code: Select all
# dmesg | grep microcode

So I think there is a microcode. Is it the good one ? :?

Thank you

Hello. You need the contrib and non-free components. Please, add contrib non-free (after main) to your source list file in
Code: Select all
/etc/apt/sources.list
Then
Code: Select all
apt update
and
Code: Select all
apt install intel-microcode
OS: Debian 10.1 Buster / WM: i3wm

Hi, thank you for your help and your patience.

I installed intel-microcode yesterday, however with many warnings such as:
"W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/gp108/gr/gpccs_bl.bin "

I don't know if it is relevant, but hardware errors persist.

Here is the content of sources.list. It was already like this before I installed intel-microcode. contrib & non-free are already after main.
