Exception | Description
0 00h | Divide error:
| Occurs during a DIV or an IDIV instruction when the
| divisor is zero or a quotient overflow occurs.
1 01h | Single-step/debug exception:
| Occurs for any of a number of conditions:
| - Instruction address breakpoint fault
| - Data address breakpoint trap
| - General detect fault
| - Single-step trap
| - Task-switch breakpoint trap
2 02h | Nonmaskable interrupt:
| Occurs because of a nonmaskable hardware interrupt.
3 03h | Breakpoint:
| Occurs when the processor encounters an INT 3 instruction.
4 04h | Overflow:
| Occurs when the processor encounters an INTO instruction
| and the OF (overflow) flag is set.
5 05h | Bounds check (BOUND instruction):
| Occurs when the processor, while executing a BOUND
| instruction, finds that the operand exceeds the specified
6 06h | Invalid opcode:
| Occurs when an invalid opcode is detected.
7 07h | Coprocessor not available:
| Occurs for one of two conditions:
| - The processor encounters an ESC (escape) instruction
| and the EM (emulate) bit of CR0 (control register zero)
| is set.
| - The processor encounters either the WAIT instruction or
| an ESC instruction and both the MP (monitor
| coprocessor) and TS (task switched) bits of CR0 are set.
8 08h | Double fault:
| Occurs when the processor detects an exception while
| trying to invoke the handler for a prior exception.
9 09h | Coprocessor segment overrun:
| Occurs when a page or segment violation is detected while
| transferring the middle portion of a coprocessor operand
| to the NPX.
10 0Ah | Invalid TSS:
| Occurs if, during a task switch, the new TSS is invalid.
11 0Bh | Segment not present:
| Occurs when the processor detects that the present bit of
| a descriptor is zero.
12 0Ch | Stack exception:
| Occurs for one of two conditions:
| - As a result of a limit violation in any operation that
| refers to SS (stack segment register)
| - When attempting to load SS with a descriptor that is
| marked as not-present but is otherwise valid
13 0Dh | General protection violation:
| Each protection violation that does not cause another
| exception causes a general protection exception.
| - Exceeding segment limit when using CS, DS, ES, FS, or GS
| - Exceeding segment limit when referencing a descriptor
| - Transferring control to a segment that is not executable
| - Writing to a read-only data segment or a code segment
| - Reading from an execute-only segment
| - Loading SS with a read-only descriptor
| - Loading SS, DS, ES, FS, or GS with a descriptor of a system
| - Loading DS, ES, FS, or GS with the descriptor of an
| executable segment that is also not readable
| - Loading SS with the descriptor of an executable segment
| - Accessing memory through DS, ES, FS, or GS when the segment
| register contains a NULL selector
| - Switching to a busy task
| - Violating privilege rules
| - Loading CR0 with PG=1 and PE=0
| - Interrupt or exception through trap or interrupt gate from
| V86 mode to a privilege level other than 0
14 0Eh | Page fault:
| Occurs when paging is enabled (PG=1) and the processor
| detects one of the following conditions while translating
| a linear address to a physical address:
| - The page-directory or page-table entry needed for the
| address translation has 0 in its present bit.
| - The current procedure does not have sufficient privilege
| to access the indicated page.
15 0Fh | (Reserved)
16 10h | Coprocessor error:
| Occurs when the processor detects a signal from the
| coprocessor on the ERROR# input pin.
17 11h | (Reserved)
31 1Fh |
