Windows 7: Win7 can't boot, can't repair and can't install after BSOD

Win7 can't boot, can't repair and can't install after BSOD

Hi!

So my problem is that my sis dropped her (luckily empty) mug on my laptop. I was running a game at the moment, which started lagging. It's always lagging a little bit, so I was not surprised. But after 2 or 3 seconds, it froze, the cursor showed up, and I got a BSOD, for about 5 seconds. Then the laptop restarted, and it can't boot. It gets to the Starting Windows message and the windows logo, but then it stops, and after a minute or so, it restarts. I tried using the Windows Startup Repair Tool from the DVD, but when I click "Repair Windows" it changes to an empty screen, and stops. I can move the mouse, but nothing happens for 20 minutes. Same thing when clicking the Install now button. I took it apart, but nothing seems to be broken, everything fits in its place. I believe it is the HDD, but I'm not certain. Unfortunately, not being able to log in, I don't have a dump file, and I can't quite remember what the BSOD screen said. Could you help me?

Have you tried booting from safe mode (F8)?

Have you tried booting from the win 7 dvd?

Safe mode doesn't work either. It starts loading the drivers, it stops for like 15 seconds, then BSOD for a moment and restarts. From the Windows 7 DVD, I can get to the menu, but can't do anything from there. Neither repairing, nor installing doesn't work.

I just got another idea. Could it be the RAM? Only because I can get to the starting windows message, which means the HDD is ok. But I can't boot, can't repair, and can't start installing. And the only common thing in these operations, is the RAM.

All right, problem found. Memtest86 says RAM is ok, so it leaves the HDD.
