Alright I was playing minecraft and then blue screen with an memory error. So I try to reboot crash again. When I tried to go into a older restore it crashed. So after that I tried to start up and I can't get a boot screen it just turns on for second and off its and on off like a cycle. There is a red light on right by the ram sticks. My specs are CPU: i7 2700k Memory:Corsair vengeance 2x4gb Video Card:Evga GTX 670 ftw+ and Hard Drive Barcuda 1tb. Any help would be apperatied.

if it's overheating it shouldn't restart like a cycle so it's not overheating. Based on my experience with PC restarting cycle, I pulled all power connector(PSU) from all components then put it back in which help solved the restart cycle....

Do you know what could cause the red light?

I dont know, have you tried at least pulling all connector and wire that the PSU connect with? if so and it continues, then it's probably just RAM failures... pull one our and test one at a time, if none work then grab a DDR3 from another computer and put it in, if still doesn't work then it's motherboard failure, also does it reboot when it enters the HDD? HDD to me are known to cause BSOD when it fails... one HDD died on me and it enter windows but then few minutes later it BSOD and it was still on the Windows LoGo screen loading before BSOD occured... RED light is telling me it's has something to do with hardware, try resetting CMOS...
