    You mean you ran Memtest and it showed errors?

    Make sure you burned it as an iso file and not data.

    Then you have to set the motherboard bios to boot from the cd/dvd drive while the disc is in.

    "Loading Operating System
    Boot from CD:

    "
    then loads windows normally!

    Have you tried to see if another computer will boot from the dvd. I get the feeling either it wasnt burned as a bootable ISO, or the DVD drive cant read it. Either way if it doesnt work on another machine you know what it is

    another BSOD, my friend said if i use the "repair" function on the windows 7 disc, it might help...
    this BSOD tell you anything new? or just the same?
    RAM tested no errors, like ive said twice, my friend is VERY persistant that its NOT a HardDrive problem (Faulty) he says it is most likely corrupt windows files....
    so...

    edit: Also, he did a DskChk thing the other day and he has 3 HDD which add up to 1.5TB, and it took him 2mins..... it took me 2 hours....
    so, i am really getting confused
    or would a reformat help?

    i did SFC /scannow
    and it seems i have some corrupt files which it couldnt fix, would the "repair" tool on the windows 7 disc solve this. or what? it said "look in CBS logs for details" and i saw that it repaired a few things in "system 32" so, is that good? or should i use repair on disc, or reformat?

    A few minutes is not overnight. You have to extensively test the memory. Even isolate one module at a time while removing others, to test.

    I would definitely borrow or pull another hard drive from another machine and install Windows on it, while removing your current hard drive too.

    If it all works well like this, then return your current hard drive for RMA.

    Basically, test the system out with a different hard drive.

    RMA?
    and i have no where to get another hard drive from....
    its either this one, or having to give this back to the shop for a new one (year warranty :D)
    so... you saying it might NOT be my harddrive, but the system install? or that its something else? i dunno?

    Would be good to see the memtest results.



    For your hard disk,

    chkdsk /r /f
