BSOD Under load

Whenever my computer is under load most of the time it crashes to blue screen of death saying, Machine_check_exception. I have no idea what the heck that means, any ideas?

First, we need to know what OS you are using. Then:

Posting the full error message might be helpful. You'll need a pencil and paper to do it-[all those numbers like 0x00009c, and etc]. You should be able to search then with the error message and see what others have done to solve the problem.

Also, the minidump file in \windows\minidump would be helpful. Someone with a debugger and a bit of knowledge would be able to read something from there. The naming convention for the minidump files is by date, so you know which one is the one you're after.

I do know that this is often caused by memory errors or wrong memory configuration in the BIOS, but can also be caused by a number of other things. Running memtest from a boot floppy might be a place to start - it would stress-test your memory and give you some clues.

When is the last time you blew the dust out of your power supply? (or out of your computer for that matter)

I refuse to answer this Q on the grounds that I'm guilty, guilty as sin!

You mean it isn't proper to turn it upside down and shake it? Or, in my case, right side up?
This is to confusing!
