OK lets go on a dust bunny hunt first

There is a little guide here

But if you can get your hands on an aerosol of air and gently blow the dust off of the graphics card, clear all the vents it may well cure the problem

Have you experienced the BSOD today ?

yes, it happened this morning.

And in fact I moved it yesterday, and wiped dust out of the external vents. Should I open it up and blow air around, do you think?

Is there any specific programme running when this occurs or is it just out of the blue

Out of the blue, as far as I know -- frequently when I am away from the computer, as this morning. However, browsers were open, and something running on one of those pages may have triggered it.

Hmm Poltergeists :rofl:

Again that would tend to indicate a temperature problem. This would be akin to leaving the car with the engine running and not moving

If they are graphic intensive pages that could trigger it

It will be intriguing to look at the next minidump to see if the same culprit is caught red handed
