Did a full format and the disk says the install was finished.Boot up and it does nothing but reboot.Safe mode just says install was not finished.The disks are ok.Anybody got any other suggestions?I have aftermarket ram installed and I was told that may be the problem.Thanks

I would try another clean reinstall, if that does not work test your ram.

memory tester
http://www.memtest.org/

Download the prebuilt ISO, burn it to CD as an Image (not data), boot from that CD and run the memory test for a couple of hours or overnight to stress test the memory.

I'll try the mem test. HP is telling me it's because I have aftermarket ram installed and I need to put the factory back in for it to work.
