Problem is it wont reboot without going through the whole repair again shutting down and hoping it starts.
F8 does not bring up safe mode or black and white page nor can i find last known good configuration.

Use your Windows 7 DVD to do ram test.
Check your ram.

As you have a Seagate, you can download the LIVE CD, & run Hd Diagnostic from boot.
