Windows 7: BSoD unknown cause.

09 Feb 2011   #1

windows-7 Ultimate X64
BSoD unknown cause.

Windows 7 IS . . .
- x64
- the original installed OS on the system? No
- an OEM or full retail version? FR
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer

- What is the age of system (hardware)? about 4 years xps m1730
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) about 1 or 2 years, since i upgraded it .

I get a BSoD usually when I watch YouTube or any other streaming videos. I thought it might have to do with my flash player, so i updated it.

I would rather let you guys take a look at the dump files for me, and give me your thoughts. thank you.
