Hello Experts,

this is 7 year old computer that I converted to Cent0S 5.3 (from XP).
this morning the box was down.
when I tried to turn it on (three times already), I get this message:
"Starting udev: CPU 0: Machine Check Exception: 0000000000000004
Bank 4: b200000000070f0f
Kernel panic - not syncing: CPU context corrupt

This usually means there is some hardware failure from what I have seen.  You can try to replace the RAM to see if that fixes it, otherwise it's likely a motherboard/CPU issue.  In that case it's not really worth trying to fix if it's 7 years old.
