I've pretty much never had blue screen problems since getting my new PC (around 15 months ago), but for one exception (see last para), but recently we decided to move the computer to the other side of the room, and changed the wiring positions as a result. Since then I've had two blue screen crashes (both while opening a link in new tab in Firefox). At first I thought I was a one off fluke, but twice in a week has me worried. Obviously somehow related to the memory taken up by Firefox, but just a couple of weeks ago I was opening over 50 tabs at once with no problem (though mostly Google searches), but during the recent crashes I only had around 5 or 6 (interestingly both the times were when I was browsing TVTropes, but I'm not sure how relevant that will be).
I have no idea how to properly open ".dmp" files, but using BlueScreenViewer I've attached the readings.
There was actually another BSOD crash when I was installing Photoshop about a month ago (though the dmp file is no longer there), but I think it's unrelated to the recent crashes. Uninstalled Photoshop after the first of this weeks crashes anyway.
Right now I tried switching the slots that my PC and monitor used. It sounds silly, but my computer guy insisted that I connected the PC cable to a specific socket on my power extension because of a "voltage problem". Can't remember which one was the right one though.
Thanks in advance
