MCE, kernel panic, ubuntu 8.04

As far as I can see this only happens when booting Ubuntu, Windows hasn't caused a blue screen or errors as yet.

When booting Ubuntu every now and then it would hand on loading, loading into recovery mode let me see that it was a machine check exception and a kernel panic.

ubuntu was installed onto an older 80gb hard drive I had, while windows and files were stored on my newer 320gb hard drive.

even attempting to boot from the livecd had issues, then unplugging the old 80, the issues stopped. since replugging it in, i havent had the problem (i was hoping it would return so i could be certain but no luck).

is it possible the plug was loose or something like that to cause the issue, or are MCEs really only from CPU/memory issues?

I've formatted and reinstalled windows on my 320 (as i was intending to do this anyhow) and i've made a partition on the 320 for ubuntu as well, which i'll do this arvo.

System specs, AMD 3800X2 running stock speeds, 2gb PC3200, Asus A8N32 sli, 7800GTX.

Format and reinstall of everything later, was all going alright, then it happened twice in a row :(

Tried to push the fan down onto the CPU a little harder (as I'm not in the mood to do a proper reseat) and then push vid and ram in better as well, and checked over all the plugs. Hasn't happened again but I expect it will...

What's my next step to checking for problems :( ?

Does Windows list anything in the event log? I wouldn't put it past Microsoft hiding this stuff from the user.

Have you run memtest? Let it run for at least 20 mins. You could also try flashing your bios to the latest version.

Memtest has been done extensively... after reseating everything I haven't had the issue for over a week... but I'm still waiting out for it :P

Nothing in the event logs either and haven't had ANY issues with stability in Windows either. Orthos for the CPU doesn't cause a crash either...

Did you try updating the bios? This fixed some issues for me in the past. Also, try disabling ACPI. There should be a command line switch to do this.
