If the CPU throws an Machine Check Exception (MCE), there is not much
you can do, as the hardware already told you "I'm dead, Jim!".
In all my cases of a MCE in the past, this was _always_ caused by faulty
hardware, split roghly 50:50 between broken mainboard or broken CPU.
If you have a valid support contract with your vendor, tell them the
system is MCEing and they will replace the hardware. If they refuse to
comply: never buy from that vendor again.
Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
