Is any of this stuff related? Having lots of problems lately, mosty around connection problems.

I had a crash dump. I will paste two things. First the "blue screen of death" (it might have been a black screen?). Then the dialogue box from within Windows (the one that starts, "Do you want Windows to check for a solution to the problem, but never actually finds anything.) Further comments at the end.

I have been having strange Internet connection problems. I have Vonage. I use Outlook. I use Yahoo Messenger. Sometimes YM will continue working, but not Internet pages. Over the weekend I had outgoing mail problems which seemed to suddenly clear up with no apparent link to anything I'd done. I'm on a network (my landlord's). Sometimes if none of my devices can connect, he can unplug his modem, wait, plug it back in, and within a minute or two all my connections are back to normal. Today some web pages won't load, then they WILL load a minute or two later. From inside MSIE, there was a typical "this page could not be found" and then "have microsoft check for connection problems." I clicked on that, and it gave me an option to "have microsoft check for incompatible tcp" or something. I clicked and it went through some process and concluded. (Not sure what that actually accomplished.)

Thanks in advance.
