Hello.
My laptop's configuration is the following :
http://speccy.piriform.com/results/p2XgnRAHiyqnGuG2kosTsYG

I'm finding difficulties when i try to play any video game that will power up my AMD Radeon gpu. I just start the game, play for 2-3 minutes, then everything freezes or screen resetting, either bsod ( WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR with the following event:
Event ID: 18
A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Internal Timer Error
Processor APIC ID: 0 and 2 ).

At start i was receiveing random driver resets of graphic card. now i just cant play any game, because after 2-3 minutes the laptop freezes.
I have to admit that 12 months ago i was overclocking the gpu for around 3-4 months. After that period, i started to get bsod's because of the AMD gpu driver, and from then I'm experiencing difficulties when I'm trying to play video games. I stopped overclocking after the first bsod.

I reinstalled the gpu driver like 10 times.

I'm exhausted about this issue and i'm hoping for a help-hand

thank you

i'm afraid this is the risk of overclocking my friend. it may have damaged the hardware. Not much you can do in that case. I suggest you send it in for repair.
