3 happened when I was just doing basic stuff, like clicking on a link or scrolling through a page. 1 happened overnight, while I was just downloading a game. They never happen when I'm using the CPU at max, like converting videos or doing a stress test.

    Next time it blue screens, write down the STOP Error code that it displays. You gotta be fast, it'll only display it for a few seconds so keep pen and paper nearby. The STOP Error code will look something like 0x0000001e or 0x0000005c. Write it down and then see what the code means.
