Computer crashes BSOD

Ok, so I've been using my computer sat on the floor since September and it's worked fine, today I brought a desk and spent ages re-wiring everything to go on it. All was good until I booted the computer... It seemed ok at first, made it to the loading operating system screen then straight to login! As I was typing in my PW it crashed and sent me to BSOD (first time since owning it). I tried booting it again, got to loading the login then crashed to BSOD, this continues for multiple attempts... I enter the BIOS to check it wasn't overheating and the CPU was at 39 degrees Celsius, I ramped up the speed of the cooling fans and set to reboot it, still the same happened, loads operating system, doesn't make it to login and crashes to BSOD.

Can anyone help me with this? I've started it in Safe Mode and it works, it's just when I try load Win 7 normally is crashes

thanks in advance, Lewis.

See if you can use the Windows 7 installation disk or (if you created one) the recovery disk and restore it to an earlier date. I have no answer for why moving it from floor to desktop made it crash in Win7 tho.

Spoke with my dad who's more knowledgeable with computers than I as he's an SQL Data Admin and he suggested re-installing Win7 from disk so that's what I'm doing now, hopefully this will work!

That's the brute force solution, but it will fix it is it is software related. ;-)

If it still happens after/during the install, run memtest on your RAM.

BSOD are often related to defective memory.

Re-installing worked fine!, happy I didn't have to rebuild the whole thing!

thanks for your help, I'll mark your first comment as the answer

EDIT: back to crashing again, it all worked fine, until I tried to open drivers for my headphones. IT FREAKED! instant blue screen and back into the same cycle, guess I'm formatting my HDD as well as my SDD this time
