    Cache Hiearchy Error

    TempletonPeck

      In the past 24 hours my machine has frozen completely twice. Basically the last screen the computer is on is displayed and nothing works for input and I have to physically power off the machine.

       

      In event viewer I see a bunch of these:

       

      Reported by component: Processor Core

      Error Source: Corrected Machine Check

      Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error

      Processor ID: 2

       

      The processor ID changes at random seemingly.The error also seems to show up even without the freezing now.

       

      I'm running a first gen i7 860. It's about 4 years old now.

       

      Is the processor dying, or is it something else? No hardware changes have been made in some time to the machine.
