Bug Check 0x122: WHEA_INTERNAL_ERROR

The WHEA_INTERNAL_ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000122. This bug check indicates that an internal error in the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA) has occurred. Errors can result from a bug in the implementation of a platform-specific hardware error driver (PSHED) plug-in supplied by a vendor, the firmware implementation of error records, or the firmware implementation of error injection.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code

bsod

If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss.

For information about how to recover from this error, see Resolving Blue Screen errors in Windows.

WHEA_INTERNAL_ERROR Parameters

Parameter 1Parameter 2Parameter 3Parameter 4Cause of error

Size of memory

Error source count

0

Failed to allocate enough memory for all the error sources in the hardware error source table.

0x2

Number of processors

0

0

Failed to allocate enough memory for a WHEA information block for each processor.

0x5

Status

Phase (The initialization phase for the bug check)

0

WHEA failed to allocate enough memory for the error sources, or the error source enumeration failed.

0x6

Status

Phase

Error source type

Failed to initialize the error source (Parameter 4) during the phase specified by Parameter 3.

0x7

Status

0

0

Failed to allocate enough memory.

0x8

Number of error sources

0

0

Failed to allocate enough memory for all the error source descriptors.

0x9

Error source type

Source ID

0

WHEA received an uncorrected error source from an invalid error source.

0xA

Error source type

Source ID

0

Failed to allocate an error record for an uncorrected error.

0xB

Error source type

Source ID

0
