seems like a video problem. I've had allot of these before. Ok, first of all, try to run verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
It will put your drivers under stress and (hopefully) reproduce problems much faster. It's good for testing purposes.
Second, the blue screen is caused by nvlddmkm.sys, an NVIDIA driver, so i would recomment (perhaps BEFORE enabling verifier) uninstalling and reinstalling ALL nvidia drivers:
- download the latest drivers for you card at their site Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
- select the "Clean Install" option
It is best to do this in safemode because if it crashes during the update, it may corrupt the system and cause more havoc.
After those steps, enable Driver Verifier (as stated above) and tell me the results.

BSOD - Browsing on Firefox, Playing HoN, Civ5
My issue is more so with my computer just freezing up for 15-20 seconds at a time randomly when I'm doing anything. I do get a BSOD every 3 hours or so too. I'm fairly certain this is a result of some driver that was recently installed, but I have no idea which one.
