Have you tried using Ubuntu / other Linux distro installed on flash disk?

No, I haven't.

I can look into that later today.

I've heard of Ubuntu starting from flash-drive.

Today I started it up under Ubuntu from flashdrive and it has ran for hours, plugged in and without issue. 

I called MSI, as well. I wanted to try and restore through the factory image, but it wasn't working. Instead they said that because I've shipped the unit recently for inspection I am entitled to a 3 months extended warranty period for free. They have stated somewhere in their documents that they do not handle software problems, although I do not know how the issue would be classified. 

Opinions?

If you have time to spare with the usual ship-and-break-again policy, go ahead. You could bit the bullet and use Ubuntu "permanently". If it did fixed your problem, then it's probably your driver messed up somewhere

Hahahah...

I can play Underrail on the other laptop anyways :D. I think I will have to keep trying.

Slight update. I reinstalled another copy of Windows through USB which I made on the other laptop. I installed it on the same system drive as the old Windows Installation, so it probably has used some of the old files and updates. It wasn't stable with BSODs at 5 minutes.

I then used Diagnostic Startup to uninstall the Display Adapter drivers under Device Manager and installed DirectX 11 after that. I restarted to Normal Startup and so far the installation has been stable. I disabled updates for a month and will run for a day to see what will happen. DxDiag still shows DirectX 12, though.
