BSOD - restarts sometimes when Firefox starts or is running

  1. I've been getting BSODs for quite a while now. The BSODs seem to only occur when I am running Firefox, often when it is loading. I have quite a few extensions on Firefox, but I have pretty much the same extensions on my portable version of Firefox, but I have never experienced a crash with any other computer.

    This is the error message I am getting:

    BCCode : 100000d1 BCP1 : 71A5DF52 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000008
    BCP4 : 71A5DF52 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

    I built this computer in Janurary, and every single piece of the computer was new, except the sound card and power supply. My previous computer also had a problem with BSOD, which seemed to begin when I installed a new Audigy 2 sound card (which I also installed in the new computer). I thought when I built the new computer the problem would go away, but it still occurs.

    The problem that that seems to have carried over from my previous computer may be a seperate crash from this one. I believe I was getting the error message IRQ_LESS_OR_NOT_GREATER _THAN

    I updated the sound card drivers, but the error continued to occur. Today I completely removed the sound card and re-enabled the build in sound on my motherboard, but the error occured again.

    Also, I have the latest video drivers for my video card.

    When I installed windows, it was a clean install, but then I used a feature of windows to carry over my settings from my previous hard drive.

    Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
