mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged ?

Postby 1885 » 2015/05/16 12:33:02

I am running Centos 7 on a Lenovo and I get this error.
I have no idea what is going on.
It looks like something related to this?

ro vconsole.keymap=us crashkernel=auto vconsole.font=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb quiet LANG=en_US.UTF-8

Any ideas?

No, it's telling you that you have a hardware error. This bit is the giveaway...

If you don't currently have mcelog installed then install it and run the mcelog command and see what it says. If you do have it installed then there is probably a /var/og/mcelog file containing information.

Thanks for the help Trevor.
This was a big help. I rand mcelog and got more than 300 lines of output.
I will research this and contact Lenovo if it is a hardware problem.

Thank you!
