BSOD - Machine Check exception

Hey guys.

Thanks for your help - this is killing me..

About 3 months ago i started noticing some glitching playing BF1; presuming this was the card i RMA it be told it was fine..

I was recently trying to see what else could of been causing it and removed the ram and then tried re-booting etc, i think during all the restarting the pc every 2 minutes i corrupted something..

Any way now im getting BSOD machine check exception, i cant load past the bios.

I have tried every ram stick one by one ( 4 in total ) still cant get on.
I removed the GPU and booted from on board GPU - No luck
I downloaded windows 1 0 on a usb drive - I cant boot to that either
I have tried to reset the bios - no luck.

Would this suggest its MOBO or CPU error? I dont know what else to do Sad

i cant load past the bios.

This points to hardware. Make the PC as small as possible. One stick of RAM, no GPU, no Drives, no Case and if you can't get to the BIOS you are looking at the possible bad parts.

What parts can you RMA?

Still having issues

Really appreciate the reply.

i tried this last night - i removed the GPU and changed the bios to boot from IGD - my screen only has display port and my mother board msi m7 z170a gaming has a display port on the MOBO - now i couldn't seem to the screen working...

but despite this i could see the issue was still happening due to the keyboard re-lighting and mobo bleeping when it restarted..

I'm thinking it could be a MOBO issue..

I will agree on that.

Not that I'm right but it often is when the symptoms are as you stated.
