On a computer that is running an x64 Edition version of Microsoft Windows, you do not receive a Stop error message when a hardware malfunction occurs. Additionally, no memory dump file (Memory.dmp) is generated. Instead, the computer just stops responding (hangs).
Without the Stop error parameters or the memory dump file, you may not be able to diagnose the cause of the hardware malfunction.
This problem occurs if a Non-Maskable Interrupt (NMI) is issued when a hardware malfunction occurs on a computer that is running an x64 Edition version of Windows. This problem is unlikely to occur outside a testing environment.
