Windows Hardware Error Architecture: Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA) provides a common infrastructure for handling hardware errors on Windows platforms. WHEA is intended to reduce mean-time-to-recovery for fatal hardware errors through richer error reporting and to reduce system crashes related to hardware errors through effective operating system hardware error recovery and health monitoring. WHEA enables the Windows operating system to effectively utilize existing and future hardware error standards, such as the Itanium Machine Check Architecture (MCA) and PCI Express Advance Error Reporting (AER).
