Are you able to get the computer to boot up with the RAM that worked before?

I question whether this is a PSU problem now...

See if you can borrow a PSU from a friend that is similarly rated as your current power supply, preferably the same or better Wattage.

Got my computer back on, just unplugged everything and cleaned it and it turned on like magic i guess. Still stuck on getting it fixed though, anything else i can try?

Based on the fact that your system would not boot, I suspect this is hardware related. The three prime suspects are: the hard disk, the RAM, and the motherboard in that order. Do you have any information that you need to backup from the hard disk?

I unplugged my hard dive and plugged my friends in and it still blue screened so does that mean that is has to be the RAM or motherboard

There are BIOS level viruses. If you are concerned this may be exhibiting a hardware failure (which viruses can do), I would recommend starting a thread in System Security - Windows 7 Forums and keeping this thread updated with what you learn or providing a link to your security thread so we know where to look.

As to the possible hardware causes: hardware does indicate it is likely a motherboard or RAM issue. I am still not ruling out the PSU, as well. PSU failures give a variety of symptoms and are difficult to track down; the only surefire way to check them is to replace the suspect PSU with one that is known to work and has a similar wattage.

Alright I will do that. But we just plugged my hard drive into his computer, and it still blue screened, which doesnt make sense at all because his hard drive BSOD on my comp and my hard drive BSOD on his comp, so does that mean that its a hard drive AND a hardware issue? We are trying to mix and match components and figure out whats causing it but its leading to nowhere

I would suspect that both hard drives will cause blue screens on a different system since the Windows installations are setup for the other computer. The only way to cleanly test would be to find a blank drive and install Windows on it from your machine.
