I recently built a PC from parts purchased from a big-name online computer parts retailer. I've built several PCs and never had the trouble I'm having with this one. I'm having two primary problems.
The system goes to blue screen of death about once a day. It's re-booting before I can read the screen.
Firefox 5.0 crashes several times each day. I have the same add-ons loaded in multiple other machines, but on this machine, Firefox crashes at least twice a day. I often notice the Flash plugin crashes before the browser goes down.
All the drivers are up-to-date, I believe. Is there a way to verify this?
I suspect a RAM memory failure. Is there a way to check for bad memory?
I am using all the default settings of the BIOS. I am not overclocking.
That's the general questions. The specifics of my machine:
