    Unpredictable BSOD, Machine Check Exception


    Hello tenforums users! I've been getting a lot of random BSODs since last week but I couldn't tell what was the issue. I've read about the error on the Internet and from what I understand from those, Machine Check Exception will occur to drivers issue, hardware issues (CPU or RAM). I've checked the RAM sticks in my PC (booting with only 1 stick and switching slots every time BSOD happens), changing the thermal compound in case of bad conduction, but still no luck. I've also reformatted the Windows partition and the BSOD occurred not long after it booted up. Windows ran fine in Safe Mode for about an hour. Any help would be appreciated! This is my first time using tenforums so I will try my best to follow the rules of posting. Cheers. Attachment 105372

  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 Unpredictable BSOD, Machine Check Exception :(

    Problem now is I can't even get Windows to run normally long enough for me to do anything. Ran memtest and changed the motherboard, still going into BSOD.

    After a long week testing the hardware, found the issue. It was the faulty CPU. Got a replacement from Intel, all is well now. *Smile
