    BSOD when playing games like csgo and lol- "Machine_Check_Exception"

    Usually 2 BSOD crashes every time I play cs, sometimes 3, rarely 0. Only application running other than the game is discord. When BSOD happens, my game flickers and the audio stutters for about 20 seconds until the blue screen appears. (Using laptop).

    The DM log collector is attached, thanks.

    These errors tend to suggest a hardware related problem. The first thing to check is that you are not overclocking your system (make sure BIOS is using the default settings) and not overheating your system (check all fans are working and heatsinks are dust free).

    Then continue by checking your RAM for any errors.

    Diagnostic Test


    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Make a photo of the result and post it.

    Seems to be an CPU failure:

    0x0000009C:    MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION (26.03.2017 23:24:07) [Windows 10] 
    CAUSED BY:     intelppm.sys [16.07.2016] * Intel Processor driver * => also at 
                   hal.dll  (Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL. NO Driver)  
    PROCESS:       System 
    Usual causes:  Hardware error (similar to STOP 0x124)

    There is only so much you can do with a bugcheck like this until it comes down to a faulty processor that will need to be replaced. Start from 1 and work downward:

    1. Ensure your temperatures are within standard and nothing's overheating. You can use a program such as Speccy if you'd like to monitor temps -

    2. Clear your CMOS (or load optimized BIOS defaults) to ensure there's no improper BIOS setting -

    3. Ensure your BIOS is up to date.

    4. The only software conflict that can usually cause *9C or *124 bugchecks are OS to BIOS utilities from manufacturer's like Asus' AI Suite, AI Charger software, etc. If you have something like this software-wise, remove it ASAP (which I see you do have Asus software installed).

    5. If all of the above fail, the only left to do is replace your processor as it is faulty.

    Diagnostic Test


    Run Prime95 to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 10 Forums

    warning   Warning
    Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.

    For checking temperatures u can use SpeedFan:

    SpeedFan automatically searches your computer for informative chips: the hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can display voltages, fan speeds and temperatures.
