Default The dreaded blue screen

My brother in law recently put his pc together and for some reason he has been getting the blue screen at least once a week since finishing. I dont have his stats right in front of me as I am at work. I have checked his drivers, tried to reinstall windows, I dont know what he does when I leave but he says nothing?

I will try and go off mem for his pc components.

MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4
AMD athlon 64 3200 vience core
evga 6600gt VGA
OCZ value ram(this is not what I told him to buy)
Seagate 80g HD
Antec 480w PSU

running xp as op syst.

Well if u have any ideas on what to check let me know, as I am tired of working on his pc. Mine is feeling neglected ;-)

Reformatting should fix that 95% of the time, unless his HD fried party or something -_-

Thanks man I will have to try that tonight, and maybe I will be able to overclock mine this weekend. I just added A/C this week and now when playing game I only get up to 33* after hrs of gaming.
