Crashing to desktop/Have dmp file

I'm playing Dawn of Discovery and have been getting the BSOD usually while playing it. I recently put a big fan next to my case to fix that problem so I bought a GPU cooling attachment. However, now when playing I've been crashing to the desktop. I have a brand new computer, running Vista 64 and have no problems with any other games. I have a dump file that it spits out but am unsure how to read it. Windows debugger reads it but says nothing useful to me other than "not having the right symbol" or something like that. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I can email the dump file if anyone knows how to properly view these .dmp files...

Here's hopin' someone knows. Thanks.

  2. Might just be the game?
  3. It's funny because this is one of the few PC games I've actually bought rather than pirated because in my opinion the developers earned my coin - then to have it not work is sorta ironic.
  4. Here's another error message I've been getting:
