BSOD when going full screen on youtube

Hello everyone I had recently built my own machine and everything was working perfectly for about 3 months then i started to BSOD when going full screen on Youtube and I do not know how to analyze the minidumps.

My Windows 7 is...
- x64
- the original installed OS
- Full Retail

- The System hardware is only 3 months old brand new
- The OS was also only about 3 months installed
