Question Solved: Custom PC won't install Windows 7!
Hi all
Resently I built a custom computer. I assembled it and it all looked good... but as it got to the startup of windows 7, just past the "starting windows" part, it reboots. Then I wanted to install windows 7 again to see if it would help. But when it gets to the "Starting windows" part, it stays there. I've tried countless things including: Testing the RAM, Changing the PSU, getting another windows 7 install disk, shifting the GPU. But none have worked the least!

I hope you guys can help!

You can see my specs at my profile

How did you test the ram? You need to run memtest over night, cause 1 or 2 passes will usually reveal nothing.

Some Corsair ram needs a higher voltage then normal, have you checked that ?

Try it with just one 8GB Ram stick and at stock speeds if overclocked.

(Is this the bundle from scan.co.uk ?)

Hey guys
thanks for the fast reply!

I have not tried to run memtest. But I'm pretty new to those programs, I'll try!

And I have checked if i could with one stick of RAM, but I will try testing some higher voltage!

Thanks again will try the memtest tonight and beging testing higher voltage now.
Will return with results in about 12 hours.

BTW it is not bought on only one website. Bought from 3 or 4 different!

Post Voltage test
Hi again
I monitored the voltage of the RAM it is just above what it needs.
So i dont think it is that.
and I'll begin memtest and see if anything turn up. I'll run it for 8-10 hours

Arrow Answer
No the HDDs are not new, but they worked in my old computer, and they also worked in my computer before that.

Like said they worked in my old computer and i mounted them in my new. when it didn't want to boot i put them back in my old comuter, and it worked like a charm.

And no it is not the legimate windows 7 disk. But i've tried an original windows xp disk!

Ty for the reply

Ok guys I'm through 3 pass and no errors yet. I'll let it be on for the night and see if some of the later tests will reveal anything. BTW I live in denmark so I'm not up all the time you are.

Since it has been running 30 hrs without errors, then RAM is not the problem.

HD is ok. Ram is ok. Then try reseat the cpu.
