    Usually bugcheck 7F with BP1 00000008 is faulty mother board.
    Refer to the following case

    If you can provide all the system event 1001, I can confirm which hardware component is faulty.

    Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen
    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content and paste it back here

    If you would attach the following file at any webspace, I can find out more clues from the dump.

    The system crash is caused by faulty ram, CPU or M/B. If it is hardware error, you will have a huge Doctor Watson log. Attach the following log at any webspace and l will check the log and find out more clues.
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\DrWatson\drwtsn32.log

    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
    interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is
    caused by drivers that have corrupted the system pool.  Run the driver
    verifier against any new (or suspect) drivers, and if that doesn't turn up
    the culprit, then use gflags to enable special pool.
    Arg1: 73655243, memory referenced
    Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    Arg4: 80543803, address which referenced memory
