Windows 7: BSOD watching videos on youtube

BSOD watching videos on youtube

Two days in a row I've had issues with video freezing up and then BSOD. This happened both times while watching videos on youtube. My browser both times was Google Chrome and both times I also had Adobe Photoshop CS5, Paint Tool Sai and AIM running in the background. Both videos were things I had watched in the past with no problems (on this machine and on a small laptop). Each time the video screen in youtube turned green, though the sound was still going, then shortly after the entire computer froze and I got BSOD.

I checked to see if the system is running hot by touching both the side and the back of the tower (by the fan) and it feels cool. I've also been dusting around the tower on a fairly regular basis so I don't think it's an overheating problem. The video card is the same one that came pre-installed when I purchased the computer (their basic package on Dell).

My system specs:
-Windows 7 Home Premium
-The original OS on the system, pre-installed (I have never re-installed)
-This system is less than a month old, I purchased it online from Dell

I've included a screencap of the error box I got when my computer restarted, the BSOD Dump & System File (as a .zip) and the System Health report.

I had a problem similar to this with my last computer, though it was much older, and eventually that computer completely stopped working (the hard drive was fried). I've had this for only a few weeks and I'm really concerned about this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For some reason it said the health report .zip was attached but it didn't show up, so here it is.
