A computer came into my store and it had a bad psu, we put in another one and booted it up to make sure it was just the psu. Once the new one came in and replaced it, Windows wouldn't boot. Random errors and horrible artifacts. Sometimes it will seize up and other times it will go to BSOD. Not to sure where things are pointing to but i'm thinking it might be to a few places not just one.

A bad power supply can send extreme voltages to everything it is connected to - you will need to check the motherboard and videocard, because they may have been collateral damage in the incident.  Swap them out and see if the problems remain.

0x24 usually indicates a filesystem problem. First I would run diagnostics on the hdd, if it passes run a chkdsk /r from the recovery console. If the problem still continue boot to a live os cd like knoppix or a live version of ubuntu and see if the lockups and artifacts continue of so then the psu damged other hardware if it runs fine then the os was damaged.

check first if the system is not overheating  -  check all fans running ok, and system clean from dust
you can also install speedfan to monitor the temsp :  http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php      

strip the system down to mobo + cpu + 1 ram stick, video card, PS, keyboard and mouse
then test the ram (3 full passes) with memtest 86+ from www.memtest.org (or download ubcd, and run it from there)
if the ram tests ok connect HD and test it (also on ubcd)
this will ensure that the basics are ok.
