    BSOD only when playing Dota 2, error 0x0000009c caused by hal.dll


    Specs:
    MSi GE62 Apache - 276 2QD
    Windows 10 Home
    Interl Core I7 - 5700HQ
    12.0 Ram Memomy
    1TB Hard Drive
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
    I just bought a new MSi GE62 -276 like a week ago and I already got 3-5 BSODs while I was playing Dota 2.
    It happened anytime during the game or I was at the lobby not doing anything.
    Please help !!!

    Hi geoht,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    The crashes 0x9C(MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION) are similar to a 0x124(WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR).
    0x124 are usually hardware problems, but difficult to identify the cause as there are more causes like overclocking, dust, BIOS problems, drivers problems and in rare cases software.
    Please test your hardware with following instructions
