Hi! Very desperate for help right now. bought a lot of new hardware, got it all set up, looked promising... but everytime it gets to the windows logo it stops, flashes with a bluescreen for a fraction of a second (cant get a photo nor video!) then restarts, and asks me whether i want to start windows repair or start normally.
windows repair comes up with no responses to errors, ive used chkdsk and gotten the same response. no errors in the drive.

specs:
os: windows 7 64 bit
processor: Intel Xeon E5-1620V3 Processor (3.5 GHz, 10 MB, LGA2011-v3 Socket)
mainboard: msi x99a sli plus
gpu: GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB PCI-E 3.0 HDMI OC
ram: HyperX Fury Black Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) 2133 MHz DDR4 CL14 UDIMM Memory Kit
hard drive: WD 1TB 3.5 inch SATA 3 Hard Drive

im pretty certain everything is connected up properly on the board, the new components ive added are the Ram, the board and the processor, (having replaced a vg300 motherboard, an intel core quad and 8gb ram (4x2gb))

one report ive had from repair is:
problem event name: startuprepairoffline
problem signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
problem signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
problem signature 03: unknown
problem signature 04: 21198900
problem signature 05: autofailover
problem signature 06: 4
problem signature 07: bad driver
os version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1


any clues as to what this means would be much appreciated. and any clues to how to fix this issue would be incredible (preferrably with keeping my files)

thanks!

I'm guessing you are using Windows that was installed when the old hardware was present, if so you should do a clean install of Windows, the problem is it's trying to use the old hardware drivers with the new hardware and that's causing the BSOD.

that sounds like it could be it. its my first (re)build so its probably one of those rookie mistakes!
if i was to put in another drive, install windows on that whist having disabled my original drive, would that allow for file preservation? then create a partition?

Yes that would work and it's a good idea to disable all other hard drives except the one you want to install Windows onto. Of course you will still have to get Windows Updates and install your 3rd party programs into the newly installed Windows.

Sometimes Windows 7 will still work after changing some hardware, it boots up and installs any new drivers automatically but it's hard to predict if that will happen or not. So there's no harm in trying you were just out of luck this time.
