    why? Guest

    You didn't mention what OS.
    You forgot the most important part, the 1st few lines of the BSOD.

    See example,
    the important bits are

    1st line, text and the first three numeric codes.
    2nd line, text and driver name at the end.

    It's unusual that *neither* browser would work. Have (maybe) you've
    had an infection that you recently 'cured' (and perhaps inadvertently
    removed a shared/modified component necessary for connection?)
    Oh, and yes, the other error message details *might* help.

  5. I was walking down the street, minding my own business, when on Fri,
    That sounds like a video card problem, maybe updating the driver? But
    WTF would it just crash on the browsers? My kid's machine crashed on
    certain programs with that kind of problem, so I swapped out the video
    card and it went away.
