    What does a watchdog.sys blue-screen of death mean?

    My brother was watching a Flash video on Firefox when it suddenly happened and the computer rebooted.

    Palit GeForce GTS250-1GB
    2GB Crucial PC2-6400
    Asus M2N68-AM SE2
    AMD Athlon64 X2 (5000+ @ 2.6GHz)

    EDIT: watchdog.sys is a Windows component so it could have been one of your Windows updates that caused the problem, try system restore and update one at a time.

    Update or re-install your video driver.

    Update or re-install your video codecs(CCCP, Sharky's, or whatever ones you use).
    :)

    Edit:

    Update or Re-install your Flash Player, too.

    Update or Install both, one for IE and one for other browsers(if you use any).

    LINK:Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player
