Built this pc for my younger brother about a year ago. First month of use, worked fine, then started blue screening every few days. He didn't mention it until quite recently once it became apparent to him this was happening way too frequently to be normal. Nowadays, he's getting BSOD anywhere from 3 to 6 times a day with 5 hours of use or so. The BSOD have been lots of stuff. I haven't been able to find any correlation between them since they all end up pointing towards different reasons for crashing. Some recent ones have been BAD_POOL_CALLER, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. Also, they happen pretty much anytime he's using it. It can happen when he's gaming, browsing the web, or instantly after he's logged into windows even. I'll update with more if they continue to happen. So far I've tried swapping out the graphics card and ram from my own PC, which worked perfectly fine before. PC continues to BSOD.

Not sure where else to go from here. It seems they continue to happen no matter what. I even tried scanning the boot disk with windows CHKDSK. No fix.

Update: New BSOD Errors
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
