Windows 7: Blue Screen on Startup

Blue Screen on Startup

I installed RC1 a couple months ago and it was working great. Today quite randomly my computer froze. I held the power button down and turned it off, but now it won't start up again.
At first the only thing that happened was the computer would turn on but the screen would show nothing. I turned it off again for a couple minutes and tried again. This time it got to the windows starting screen before flashing a blue screen and restarting. I tried doing windows repair, but it gets stuck on loading files, or it goes to a black screen with a red bar at the top.
Safe modes and last good config all get blue screens.
When i do the disable auto restart option it gives me two separate blue screens.
The first one i got said Bad_Pool_Header and the second one says a device driver was trying to corrupt my system.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi cornisnice, welcome to the forums.

When you restart, unplug any/all USB prepherals and see if that has any effect on your startup then report back.

Also, did you install any new software/hardware before the crash?

Hope this helps

Hi, thanks for the reply,
I haven't installed anything within the last couple days.
Unplugging all the USB devices had no effect on the startup, it still takes me to a blue screen no matter what

When you do a repair are you running it direct from the DVD?

I would advise;

Repair Install
or
Startup Repair

Read through the tutorials & hope they help.

I'm still waiting for my friend to come back with the DVD, but i'll give that a shot and report back later.

From what you are explaining, if the repair or reinstall does not solve the issue, you could have some sectors in your HD going out. I would also reseat your RAM dimms.

Awesome. Just a suggestion, I would set the automatic updates for review before install. Goodluck.

Well unfortunately just minutes after i logged myself in, my computer froze yet again. I powered down and turned the computer back on and once again the blue screens returned. This time however, the when i booted from disk it kept getting stuck at loading files, or stuck at the starting windows screen after the loading files screen.
