Can't get Windows to work after installing new PSU, even after using reinstallation DVD to wipe hard drive

So I have an ibuypower pc w/ AMD FX series processor and 4gb of ram. I recently installed a corsair cx500 psu and replaced the oem 4gb ram with 8gb g.skill ripsaw. Then my windows started being buggy. It also coincided with a Windows update, not sure if that hasn't anything to do with it. Anyway, I thought maybe I had some malware, I didn't really have a lot of on the hdd, so I'll just start from scratch. But now, even after wiping the hard drive and reinstalling windows it doesn't work. I get stuck in an automatic repair loop that claims it's unable to fix the problem. Please help.
