8800GT, BSOD's / nv4_disp.dll crashes and loops.
Hi, we recently bought a computer for my brother, and everything boots up fine and games play good, but it keeps getting the BSOD whilst gaming and loops and such.
His card is a Gigabyte 8800GT, the BSOD used to stay on a while so we could see the error, but now it happens so fast we can't see what it says, but it used to say nv4_disp.dll.
here are the things we've tried;
a different harddrive
different nvidia drivers & completely cleaning them using drivercleaner or something.
taking 1 stick of ram out, then the other.
made sure everythigns connected properly
and soon we're going to try a different graphics card in his computer to see if it is actually his graphics card or what?
could it be a faulty gcard?
here are the specs.

any help is appreciated, we're going to try a different graphics card and if it persists most likely send the Gcard back, what else could it be?
