Windows 7: BSOD while using flash

BSOD while using flash

Basically i bluescreen whenever im watching youtube, streams, or listening to pandora. Its not instant and seems to happen more often if i have multiple windows open. I dont bluescreen while gaming if i dont have flash open in the background. Ive updated as many drivers as i can think of bios etc and will be running a memtest tonight to rule that out. Any help on this matter is much appreciated.

- Windows 7 x64
- full retail version
- system is almost a year old
- formatted about a 3 weeks ago

I had the latest flash drivers recently rolled back too see if it would fix the problem. By 64 bit you mean the flash square drivers i could give them a try. I disabled hardware acceleration but i still get random crashes.

Found the culprit only one memory slot was working on my motherboard. Crashes were more frequent whenever i went over 2gigs of ram. I tried raising the voltage of my memory and i was able to stay on for longer but my pc eventually crashed. Not wanting to have to rma or live with just 2gigs of ram i read somewhere that newer cpus contain the memory controller instead of the mobo and a bad seat could lead to my problem. So i reseated my cpu and have been running with 4gigs for about a week which is the longest since i started having this issue back in march. Find it odd that my system was stable for 8 months started crashing every other day and just reseating my cpu could solve all the problems but its working so i cant complain.
