    Live kernel event code ab hardware error


    I just installed the latest cumulative update and when I checked reliability history it listed a hardware fail event, livekernelevent code ab. Anyone know what that's about? PC seems fine though. And I rebooted a few times and was unable to repeat the error, bit concerned by it though!

    EDIT - seems to be a bug in the latest cumulative update as we see the exact same in our other machine! Possibly triggered by signing out of one user account and into another. As I can't then subsequently repeat the error I think it's a one off that happens initially after the update but will monitor the reliability history closely to see if it happens again on either of our machines

    Yeah, stumbled across this thread while trying to figure out the problem. Seems like it's a bug right after installing the latest update like you said since it's happening on multiple machines. I only have one user account on my computer so it seems like that's not the problem.

    Thank you! I think it just confirms a bug like you said. I haven't seen it since so will ignore it!

    Just seen it again! Baffling as no apparent issues on the machines, same reference too!

    Hell o, Scottyboy99, Cmp21 and others!
    I have this annoying problem as well. I have been getting this at least once a day especially while on start up and in a bad day 2 or 3 times. Though I am not experiencing anything unusual for daily use I just don't like it listed as Critical events! I am guessing this is something to do with my graphics card - nVIDIA GT 710 however I can not find any informations about LiveKernelEvents Code: ab. I am also following this post, A problem with your hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly. - Microsoft Community

    Ok thanks. I see it on both my machines. One is Nvidia 980ti albeit not on the latest and greatest drivers. But the other is a different GPU, its an internal intel HD one. Clearly a nasty windows bug in latest version! I will check out that other thread you linked

    Hi,

    Strange, my machines are totally stable. Absolutely nothing to report.

    It is weird, mine are totally stable too. Unless I look in reliability history I would detect nothing is wrong at all!

    I look in device manager regulary too and there are absolutely no issues. It's as if it's a rogue message

    RH is as clean as the proverbial whistle on mine.
    As is Event Viewer. Of course the DCOM errors were fixed by myself but these are pretty harmless anyhow.
    Admittedly hardware is pretty basic ; no graphics cards add or whatever.

    Hopefully your problems can be sorted somehow.

    Cheers,

    Disable Fast Startup https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html and error will disappear!
