Bsod's help plz


I have been attempting to build up a spare computer and i am stuck at the windows installation. I get about 75% through the installation phase then it stops and i get a BSOD saying attempting to reset display driver and recover from timeout failed.

Any ideas of what could be causing this? I have read that mainly this issue is caused by outdated drivers. Could it be a faulty bit of hardware? Like my hdd or motherboard or something
