  1. I think it's first off mentioning I'm not a computer whiz so if I ask what something is that is the reason :) But the error I have been encountering is multiple BSOD crashes over the past 2 weeks, I've owned my computer for about 1 and a half years. I took it to my friends recently to show him it in action and in true fashion it didn't actually do it, the only difference in set up being I used a HDMI cable to connect to a different monitor but I don't think this could be the culprit, could it?

    The BSOD comes up with the following messages in the past:
    BAD_POOL_CALLER (The most common one without a doubt)

    I understand this isn't much to go on so if you need any information to help you try and solve this issue it would be much appreciated.

    With all that memory, I hate to say, it may be a memory fault. Go to Download version 5.01 and burn it to a disk. Start the computer from this disk and run Memtest 86 for at least 7 passes. No errors are allowed and I suspect that you may get errors right away if you get any. How many memory modules are installed? Only 1 may be bad
