AMD Northbridge: Machine Check Exception

I have been getting this critical hardware issue regarding my PC and i cannot seem to find an answer about it. specifically, my computer says the error is type "29" which does not exist, according to google. Regardless of how many times i search or how i word it nobody else has an "error type 29". The best i can say is my processor is breaking down or something, but i don't know how to fix it if possible. I cannot get a new machine, nor can i order a new processor.

My question is what is "Error type 29" and if possible, can i isolate a core on my processor that may be faulty and disable it somehow through BIOS? Thanks

Processor: AMD FX 6100 Six-Core Processor 3.30 GHz

Edit: another thing that i can add is this had happened over a month ago but the issue resolved itself somehow, but now has come back in force and it's even worse than before. I can load up google chrome but if i attempt to watch a Youtube Video or play a video game, it will shut off moments later and restart.

It is NOT:


Graphics card

Power supply
