Default random blue screens?

at random times my computer just seems to crash on me with a blue screen mostly when im on mozilla, i've check for spyware (with spyware doctor) and ive checked for viruses (with NOD32)
could this possibly be my power supply causing the issue?

Next time you get the blue screen try to write down the number of the error. It will help a lot in determining what the problem is.

Using windbg you can read the dump file, it'll tell you the codes of all your crashes.

Windbg is from MS.
