BSOD at Windows 7 Startup

I left my computer at my apartment for 3 weeks to go back home for break. Upon coming back, my computer would post, get to the Windows start up screen and BSOD. It restarts too quickly for me to read the BSOD. Before then, it didn't have any significant problems.

System Specs:
Intel i7-860
MSI P55-GD65
Corsair vengeance 4x2GB 1600Mhz
CoolerMaster RS-650 650W
HIS iCoolerV Radeon 5850

I have tried reseating all the power cables and only using 1 memory. Same BSOD occurs. I have also tried to unplug everything except the CPU, HSF, and PSU. I didn't get any beeps, but I'm not sure if my case speakers are in working condition.

Any help is appreciated.

    see if you can get into Safe Mode by taping on and off te F8 key when you turn on the computer.
  2. It also had a BSOD while trying to load into Safe Mode.
  3. did you try all three(?) versions of Safe mode including the one that says 'with command prompt?"
  4. Yeah, it BSOD'ed on all 3 attempts.

    I got to see the BSOD error after disabling automatic restart on failure, and it says "SYSTEM_LICENSE_VIOLATION"
  5. Isyour copy of Windows a legal licensed version?
  6. What is the violation codhttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff559317(v=VS.85).aspxe or whatever: here is the list for the violation reasons:
  7. Try restoring default settings in bios setup.
  8. Yeah, it's a legal licensed copy albeit, the Windows 7 Upgrade version.

    I think i had 0x07 and 0x08.

    I tried restoring default settings, and the results were the same, BSOD.

    So far, I have temporarily circumvented the problem by rebooting from last successful boot in the boot options. I'm going to backup my files for now, and then will continue to test.
  9. okay, well that's good.
  10. There doesn't seem to be a problem now, strangely.

    Thanks for the help!

  12. Cool. I would run a chkdesk when you have time also.
    You can go into the Computer icon.
    Then right-click on the C: drive.
    Click on "Properties"
    Click on Tools
    Click on "Check Now'
    You can put a check-mark in both selections.
    Click "Start"
    It will then prompt you to verify that you want to schedule a disk check and that it can't do it now, but it will schedule it to perform on your next boot.
    Click okay or yes.
