Hello,

I'm having some trouble with my home built computer, with Windows 7 home premium OS. When my computer reaches the the windows 7 logo screen, after a couple seconds a blue screen flashes for about half a second and then my computer resets constantly. I have had issues with starting up the computer in the past but now it's really bad. I tryed to do a system restore but an error comes up with the numbers 0x80070057 on it. I would give you the blue screen number buts it's litterally impossible to see.
I have tryed unplugging all usb devices.
Unplugging cd drive, extra hard drives
Taking out extra ram (from 8gb to 4gb)
I havn't had any problems with my self built computer for about a year until now. It works great, just has trouble starting. I have tryed many basic soultions to try to fix it and nothing worked! I am completely clueless, if I could get some advice on how to fix this it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

I would be looking at your RAM.
What RAM are you using? what voltage is it manufactured to run at?
what is your BIOS set to?
run Memtest over night.

Could be failing memory or hdd (<--MY CHOICE).

Could also be that the registry has reach its maximum size, I know it sounds daft but get into safe mode and increase size of virtual memory.

Have you changed your SATA mode lately? Ive seen this typically happen when a user switches their SATA mode in the BIOS i.e. from Legacy IDE to AHCI, without provisioning properly in the OS.

This used to be pretty much impossible without an OS reinstall in XP, but in Win 7 you can change a registry value so that the OS can account for the change.
