Several months have pased since I start having those BSOD. I have tried everything (literally, almos every possible solution). I mostly tought it was a RAM problem, also HDD problems but after several checks and possible solution nothing fixed it. So I got am amswer (an answer I wasnt happy to read), I been told it could be a processor issue after reading this whocrashed report


A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa8007e51038, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 0000000000000000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.



Wish it is not the processor (and who better than you to tell me so), hope there is a way to check if the processor is bad and maybe it is the motherboard.

And there is something strange in all of this, because it only happen en 'low' uses of the PC (like doing nothing, surfing the net/windows, and mostly on youtube; also I noticed this problem is more frecuent in win 8 and much more in win 10; actually I am using win 7 x64) and seems to not happen in 'heavy' loads (like playing fallout 4, metal gear 5, and so on)


Hope you can help me, thanks!

PS: If you need de .dmp file or whocrashed full report just tell me.
