Windows 7: BSOD before Win 7 login screen - Desperate for Help

BSOD before Win 7 login screen - Desperate for Help

So this all started last Thursday, was doing some gaming - my game happened to freeze, Alt+tabbing didn't work, Cntrl+Alt+Del didn't work, so I decided to force shut down my computer (holding power down for 3-4 sec).

Now Windows 7 won't boot all the way. I spent a good 7 hours that day trying to fix it, it couldn't get passed the "starting windows" splash page before a BSOD/comp would reboot itself.

I did manage to move my RAM around, take a stick out(running 2x4GB) and with only 1 stick in I am able to get to the windows login screen, where is says "Please wait.." but it just sits there for a couple min before eventually I get a BSOD. So I bought new RAM, same results - i'm stumped at this point, please help!

"Please Wait" screen for reference - Here

Have you tried booting into safe mode (F8)?

Have you tried booting from the win 7 dvd?

Also tried booting into Safe Mode and Last known good configuration, and no luck.
