    Hello TenForums,

    Everytime I get into a game my computer freezes and blue screens with the error message "Machine Check Exception". Please can someone help me out?

    Many thanks.

    This could point to hardware problem with your CPU but more often also motherboard software and monitoring software can cause this kind of BSODs.
    In this case it's an internal unclassified error, which means it's not publicly documented (which is ironic given it's "unclassified"). However, yes, it's clear you're dealing with an internal CPU fault and not one that could be generated by bus issues or any other external factor other than heat and voltage. Though make dead sure motherboard software isn't interfering; sometimes mobo software will generate CPU faults of this sort because of bugs in their CPU drivers.
    Other than that, no, there's really nothing else you can retrieve from this.

    hello lifetec ,

    //that mean i cannot do anything in this case, right ?
    I have remove gigabyte app / HWinfo and update LAN + Intel management.
    but still getting that crash without reason , tried tracking on event viewer but no clue. Just the witcher 3 my PC had that problem, another game is fine (playing over 2-4 hours)

    anyway, thank you for your help, i will keep looking on my CPU then (maybe overclocking is not good for this game)

    Yes overclocking can cause this kind of bugcheck also.

    You can test your processor with this intel tool.
    CPU Stress Tests:
    Only need to run 1 or 2 of the tests under most circumstances. I haven't used any of the tests myself, so I listed all that I was able to find.
