Like the title says my PC crashes intermittently while I am printing a reply to a topic on one of the forums I visit. It is not an everyday occurrence but has happened 7-8 times in the six months since I built my PC. I am pretty vertain it is not malware but some sort of glitch which due to my lack of knowledge evades me at the moment. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause this to happen. I will be printing in the reply box and as I press on a keyboard letter I get the BSOD. This morning it happened again and as I use Firefox when I rebooted and went online it returned to the forum page it had crashed on. I went to add my reply and halfway through the second sentence it happened again. Usually these events have been weeks and weeks apart, this is the first time it has happened consecutively. Could it be a problem with the specific forum or is it to do with my PC?.

A BSOD is caused by a hardware problem, if you are using a USB keyboard, it is entirely possible the USB port has a fault (Like a short), it is also possible it is a fault in your usb controller. The same can be said for a ps/2 keyboard. Can you try using another kind of keyboard? ps/2 if you are currently using a USB (I would try swapping usb ports first if this is the case) or a usb keyboard if you are using ps/2 keyboard.

If it is only that forum, there may be a component to it that is causing an issue, such as something causing you to hit a bad spot on your ram that you don't usually use. Before you consider anything like this however, I would try my first suggestion.

I assume, it'd be "typing", not "printing"?

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.
