Error message looks like you have a hardware problem with CPU or RAM. Have you tried running memtest or if available, a built-in hardware diagnostic tool which you can choose during the server boot?

  • Memtest shows no error . Is there any other bootable tool to try ? – Omid Kosari Aug 28 '14 at 8:06

    Proper servers usually have a built-in diagnostic tool selectable during server boot sequence. Have you checked out you don't have one? Those tend to test all the components. Of course they are not fool-proof but sometimes they succeed in finding the fault. Other than that, you might boot up any Linux live distro you like and let tools such as stress and cpuburn run for a longer period of time (at least overnight or a full weekend). – Janne Pikkarainen Aug 28 '14 at 8:11

This is definitely look like a hardware error.You can try tool like mcelog which just act as a translator for any machine check exception(mce).You haven't menrioned which version of OS you are using but in RedHat/Centos you can install it via yum

               yum install mcelog

and the message are logged in /var/log/mcelog

For more info you can refer to there main website http://www.mcelog.org/
