P55W V4 Bluescreen with Dota2 CSGO

Hello,

I am currently facing a reproducible problem with the P55W V4 Laptop. Both Dota 2 and CS:GO make the Laptop crash
with a bluescreen of death with the "Machine check exception" error message. Many users also report the same problem with newer Office programs and Virtual Machines. MSI recently rolled out a BIOS update that seems to fix the problem with their Laptops that contain the same processor (i7 5700hq).

There are various threads about this issue currently avaible on different Forums.

The post on reddit is from me, as you can see, I already tried updating every driver, but the problem recently only got worse and is really really frustrating to have with such a high-priced hardware.

Regards

Edit: There also seem to be fixes for Clevo Notebooks updating the drivers, I am hoping for something similiar for the P55W
