Constant shutdowns and restarts before log in

Hello, can anyone help me im going crazy i been at this for over 6 hrs. I just built a new computer and did all the updates but i beleve it problem lies with the graphic card driver. It happen this morning when i updated just geting random crashes. Now i cant log in. I went to safemode, repair, deubbing, restore, activate when the system worked at a earlier time, and window cd repair disk. All of them get the same results once window files are done down loading it crashes. Repair and safe mode blue screens error 0x0000007e and 0x0000001e but before the blue screen i saw that safe mode crahes when it hits window\system32\Drivers\atipcie.sys

but the weird part i took my harddrive from the new computer and plug it into a my old one and it does the same thing???? i'm at a lost how can i stop these random shut down and earse the driver?

Assuming you plugged everything in properly then use an Ubuntu live cd to get all your data (if any) off the HDD then Hitachi's Drive Fitness test to see if the HDD is corrupted. I'd also use the built in GPU instead of the dedicated GPU to rule that out.

Possibly, but the fault could be either hardware or software. I'm leaning towards hardware now.

Run Memtest86 as a boot disc:

Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

and then run the Drive Fitness .iso:

http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/suppor...2_v416_b00.iso

You'll need to burn both to CD and then boot off them. I'd leave the video card out for this and use the inbuilt GPU. Post the results of both these tests. If it still freezes it might be the motherboard.

ugh it might the mobo......it keeps freezing during the memory diagnostic....it does indicate theirs a hardware issue, but could it be just the RAM thou? doesn't RAM causes freezing too?
