Not Booting Windows past GUI

Hey guys - working on my third build and running into some major problems.

Tried to start up the new build after it had been working for a few days and when I am loading Windows 7 64-bit, it will stop working at the GUI screen. Here's what I've tried to do ...

1. Use startup repair (won't get past that Windows screen).
2. Tried to startup with SSD as the main drive for a working computer, got a BSOD and quick restart following GUI boot.
3. Booting from CD drive, HDD, SSD separately. Disconnected each device to see how the computer would react and nothing was working.
4. I formatted the SSD on a different computer and then tried to install windows on the SSD with no other hard disk connected. Stalls at the GUI boot screen.

My set up is discussed below. I don't have any of the red LED device lights on. Any thoughts on what to do or how to troubleshoot this would be appreciated. Thanks!

May be a bios issue. try to go on bios, then exit it. If it works then- update your bios, -> Gpu bios.
