WHEA-Logger Event ID: 19 "A corrected hardware error has occurred"

I've just noticed frequent "A corrected hardware error has occurred" warnings in my event viewer dating back to October 16th of this year. As of now I haven't come across any performance issues or anything like that though.

I'm getting 2 different errors, with different processor IDs (0 and 1)

Here's my processor, and general PC Specs, the machine came packed with Windows 8, but I downgraded to 7 Ultimate SP1 x64.


AMD A8-5500

TDP: 65W

Operating speed: 3.2 GHz (up to 3.7 GHz turbo)

Number of cores: 4

Socket: FM2

And if it's of any value, according to Speccy my PC temps seems to sit in the mid-high 50's, with Jumps into the 60's and low 70's.

  1. That seems like two of your cores are having issues, though if it's only two and they're corrected automatically without causing you any issues, I wouldn't worry about it.
  2. Run Prime 95 for an hour. A instnace for every core (so 8 copies of prime95 at the same time) if the error pops up again whilst doing so then you may have a dying CPU. IF not, then you are fine and ignore it.
  3. I'm having the same issue with my i7-4770k. I'm running Prime95 torture tests without errors or warnings on low 50°C temps (liquid cooling).
    My eventlog is swamped with these errors though. Could this be caused by VirtualBox? I'm running around 6 to 8 VMs at any given time.
    Even though I have a K-cpu, nothing is overclocked at the time, all in standard trim. It's a pretty new CPU though and I'd like to know if I should ask for a replacement (HW issue with CPU) or not.
