    BSOD Machine Check Exception


    I am getting a BSOD issue generally when playing games on my pc. The error code is usually Machine_Check_Exception and it comes up somewhat randomly after playing for a bit. Sometimes I can play for an hour with no issues sometimes it will come up after on few minutes of play. It will also occasionally happen immediately(Within 30 Seconds) of starting up after another BSOD. Any help would be dope.

    :)

  3. BSOD Machine Check Exception

    Hey everyone,

    This BSOD has become a daily thing now and it always happens while I am playing a particular game (Skyforge). The crash is fairly random from as quick as 5 minutes to as long as couple of hours while playing the game. I noticed that 'Windowed Mode' of the
    game helps delay the BSOD but it is still disappointing as this is a relatively new system and to have BSODs at the start is just :/ I run a MSI GE62 2QD Apache Pro and have not altered anything since I purchased it ~6 months ago (aside from clearing bloatwares).
    It was pre-installed with Windows 8.1 and I have tried the following in sequence:

    1. Updating drivers via Windows Update and via MSI Support page

    2. Updating to the latest Nvidia Graphic Driver

    -The following changed the BSOD from Machine Check Exception to Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_Than_Or_Equal bwcW8x64.sys which relates to a variety of .sys files including but not limited to (acpiex.sys, rdyboost.sys, bwcW8x64.sys, etc.)

    3. Uninstalled the latest Nvidia Graphic Driver and allowed Windows to automatically reinstall Nvidia Graphics Driver

    -Back to Machine Check Exception

    4. Cleaned all my fans, reseated RAM, fans are working

    5. Monitored my temps, usually in the range of 40-60 (can reach 70~80 sometimes but this only lasts couple of seconds?)

    6. Stressed test with Prime95 for 6 hours, no errors

    7. Reinstalled Skyforge

    8. Ran Driver Verifier

    -Windows BSOD constantly, driver localised to hal.dll +37745 and ntoskrnl.exe (sadly I have lost the driver file because of 9)

    9. Upgrade AND clean install to Windows 10

    -BSOD again Machine Check Exception within minutes of game (hal.dll +364b1)

    10. Please help BSOD Machine Check Exception :(

    BlueScreenView dump file:

    I hope I have not missed out anything so that the team can help me with this issue. If there's anything else you need just let me know. You will have my eternal gratitude x

    Hello TPBlaster,

    Welcome to Tenforums *Smile

    Everytime you get a BSOD there is a new mini-dump file created. We need to be able to see these so please post a new set of logfiles.

    Many thanks!
    Phil

    These are usually related to hardware errors, the most recent one is a bugcheck 0x124 and we can examine the Machine Check Exception (see below). The CPU reports the error as a data cache Level 0 write error but finding the cause is difficult.

    Current BIOS: Version 1602
    New BIOS available: Version 2103

    I therefore suggest you update the BIOS to see if it will improve things.


    In your event log you have many, many errors relating to the Intel Energy Checker service. I suggest you remove this while troubleshooting.
