  • What's your hardware? have you tried to  test your RAM?



  • yup, its a 3 month old machine. all new stuff..

    diags didnt return any errors

    its celeron 3160 NUC with 4GB RAM, Intel NICs & SSD

    Have made some changes to Tunables… will see if that solves the issue

    Both of those crashes are very low-level and highly unlikely to be software-related.

    The fact that the system is so new does not necessarily mean the hardware is good. It could be defective, rather than developing a fault over time.



  • Hardware follows a bathtub curve, most likely to show issues in the first few months if ever, and sudden failure later in life.

    Whenever I build a new computer at home, I have it run 3-4 days of memtest, 2-3 days of a CPU burn-in, and 1-2 days of GPU burn-in. How sure are you that it's not a hardware issue?

    will run a few more iterations & check
