BSOD on boot Win 7 Ult

Hello, I have a fairly old HP desktop Model: Pavilion m7790y. The problem is that when i turn on the PC and after the windows 7 animated logo shows up, i receive a BSOD for exactly one second and then the PC reboots. So its stuck in this loop. i replaced the hard drive and installed a fresh copy for windows 7 ultimate but still the problem is there.

Things to note:
1) When i turn on the PC, on the motherboard screen that shows up before the windows 7 logo, the screen looks choppy (like the video card is acting up) but when it proceeds to the windows 7 animated logo, the screen looks fine. Could it be a graphics card problem? When the BSOD comes up the screen is also choppy.

Is there a procedure to find out which component is not working properly to fix this BSOD?

Thanks in advance for all your help! and please ask any questions you have.

  1. You are describing a flaky video card. Do you have access to another one that you could swap in for troubleshooting?
