Download BlueScreenView (in Zip file)
No installation required.
Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Make sure, your settings are correct...

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel (Start>Control Panel in Vista).
2. Double-click System.
3. Click (Advanced system settings link in Vista, then --->)the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
4. Make sure, there is a checkmark in Write an event to the system log.
5. In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (64k) (128K in Windows 7).

Hmmmm...

Navigate to: C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
Do you see any .dmp files there?

Can you post exact wording of the error?
A screenshot possibly?
I'd assume this is not BSOD error then?

I don't understand hwo come it's not registered in Minidump folder, hmmmm.....

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode).
Use it for a while in that mode and see if BSOD will happen again.

Apologies for bumping in here, Broni, but I may be able to offer a bit of advice... but I need a few answers first.

insaniak, I have a few questions. First, when did this start? Did you install any new software or hardware around that time? And is your CPU or GPU overclocked?

Cheers,
--Troy
