Default what parts would fix this BSOD

Hey im gonna be rebuilding my brother's computer with new parts to fix the windows "blue screen" error that he keeps getting, i just wasnt sure which parts i should keep and which to replace based on what could be causing the error.

i dont mind replacing all the parts that could possibly be causing the error i just want to know which parts definitely arent causing the problem.

obviously ill be keeping the case, psu, dvd. im guessing i should get a new HDD, Ram, board and cpu but is it possible that some of those would never cause a problem like this?

its randomly getting the blue screen sometimes saying: bad_pool_caller at no particular time (not during startup) and sometimes just freezes without blue screen where you cant move the mouse it's just stuck. ive tried a fresh reinstall of Vista and updated all drivers etc. but that didnt fix anything

well it could be any thing, so getready to replace every single part in the pc


but we need the STOP code, it looks like this, 0x0000007e. the last two characters will most likely be different. and it will be at the end of the page.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD

you can run the memtest to test the ram. If it has errors it will probably the cause of th BSODs.
