New CPU, but Windows 7 won't boot

My new cpu, FX-8350, got here today but I am having a problem booting. I have two options: start up repair or start normally. If I do start up repair I blue screen, if I start normally the entire systems just restarts and I'm back at the beginning.
Specs:
AMD FX-8350 CPU
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 GPU
10gb DDR3 1333mhz RAM
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Mobo
650w 80+ Bronze Modular PSU
2x 7200rpm Seagate HDD's

  1. Just erase your hard drive or ssd and reinstall windows 7 again.
  2. I can't, like I said when I do that it just restarts automatically.
  3. did you upgrade the bios on your motherboard?
  4. No I'm honestly not sure how. I tried booting from the install disk and blue screened again.

    Ok. Plug the HDD or SSD into another Desktop in your house. If you don't have one put it in a case to make it an external hard drive and plug it into a laptop. Then erase from there. (P.S. If you don't have another computer in the house just use one of your friends.)

    You can also use a usb thumbdrive. Simply download the updated filed to it, plug it in, go into bio and find the update bios option.
  7. i hope its not your hard drive thats failing. that would really suck.
  8. Ya I think I'll try updating the bios that seems best to me. Wish me luck!
