Blue Screen around startup

  1. Yesterday, I was watching a streaming video online, and then it went black. I tried to pause it, but Firefox wasn't responding. Then the entire browser went black, and finally, there was a BSOD.

    I restarted, and as soon as I logged into Windows, I got a BSOD; This happened twice more. Right now I'm in safe mode, and it's working properly. All of the errors had to do with a memory allocation problem (the 3rd BSOD simply stated a memory_management error).

    Is it possible that there is a startup program misallocating memory? Or is it a sign that my memory (that is about 2 years old) is starting to break?

    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and I have linked a minidump file at the bottom of this thread (it was over 200kb, so I couldn't attach it).

    Please post your minidump files for analysis; you can find these in C:\windows\minidump.

    If you have multiple minidump files, zip them in a single file. Regards
