I'm using an MSI PE60 2QE with an i7 5700HQ and a nvidia 960m with 8 gb of ram. The problem is that i get a Machine Check Exception crash every time i try to play a game. I have check the ram and it's fine. The problem has happened both on Windows 10 and 8.1.

How can that be the problem if it's a plugged in laptop with a fully charged battery?

By "PSU" I am being general. Could be a faulty battery, etc. Could also be a faulty motherboard. My recommendation is still the same. The laptop does not have a consistent supply of power, etc, hence the constant Machine Check Exceptions.
