Two weeks ago my computer came down with a blue screen of death. I was running Windows 7 at the time on a fairly new system (little over a year old). Great gaming PC, never had any real issues. I was unable to get past the Windows loading screen, I was unable to load up in safe mode, I was unable to start up from the last known configuration, and I was unable to run a Windows repair. All options failed. I tested the memory to see if my RAM was messed up; RAM was fine.
So I installed a brand new hard drive in today, fresh and clean. I popped in my Windows Vista DVD (I don't have a DVD for my 7) and started installing Windows Vista on the new hard drive. All was going fine. Then it finished installing and immediately I was struck by the BSoD in the same spot as before; couldn't even log in. So apparently it's not a Windows problem, there's a serious issue with my PC itself. What is wrong?
During the reboots, you should get an option to disable automatic reboots, this will allow you to record the full Blue Screen message. Post the bluescreen message here, and I am sure either myself or others could help point you in the right direction.
I can't disable automatic restarts because I can't even get into my Windows control panel. I can't load up Windows in safe mode or anything, so unless there's a way to do it through the BIOS I don't know what to do.
Try plugging the SATA cable into a different spot on the board. make sure ALL connections are tight. Make sure your video card is seated...pull and reinstall. Only run 1 stick of memory. Clean dust from heat sinks. if you have a lot on the processors HS it may have gotten too hot and that is that... ???
