    For the past couple weeks my computer has been getting BSODs during certain functions. I have a SNES emulator that crashes it, sometimes uploading pictures, or using photo shop, though not always, and sometimes just a few youtube tabs can kill it, even when all paused. But it can handle a game like Hitman (only one I have) just fine.

    I built this thing half a year ago and haven't had any problems until now.

    It has plenty more than it needs to do the above mentioned tasks, except maybe a good video card (just using the on-board one, and always have), but I don't see how that could be the problem considering how it plays a game without crashing.

    I can dig up the dmp files or whatever else upon request. The hard drive is not fragmented, I ran a diagnostic on the RAM, I've cleaned it with CCleaner and virus checked it with AVG and Malware Bytes, probably some other stuff I've already forgotten about... I even opened it up and checked the connections on all the cords and so on. I'm running out of ideas.

    Anyone out there have any idea how to help me?
