Windows 7: BSOD, now Windows 7 wont load/freezes

BSOD, now Windows 7 wont load/freezes

So last night I was on my comp, and got hit with a BSOD out of nowhere.

System restarted, and now when windows loads, the desktop icons wont show up, and neither will the taskbar, then the whole thing just freezes

I try to run in safe mode, and this will work for only about 1 minute or so until it freezes as well.

I have tried all the F8 options/fixes, and nothing has worked so far.

Any help at all?
I'm completely at a loss here

ps- i'm a total n00b at tech stuff, so keep in mind heh...

Use Advanced Boot Options and select Repair Your Computer (the guide to get to advanced boot options is included in that link). Repair Your Computer will get you to the Recovery Environment or System Recovery Options screen. Choose System Restore in part 6. Use OPTION TWO of the System Restore guide to restore to an earlier date before the problems began. Let us know if this works.

Tried the first time, and it froze during the restore.

completed the 2nd time, said it was all done, went back to the 13th (wayyy before this started happening), windows restared, but now has frozen at the "welcome" screen, and the little spinning circle has stopped moving, keyboard and mouse unresponsive

well it was my friends comp, he gave it to me a few months back, haven't had a problem with it til just now

and he had it built by some computer shop in town, so I'm pretty sure the parts are all just kinda mixed and matched

Do you know how to get into the BIOS? It is usually done by either tapping the F2, F10, or the DEL key right when the computer turns on. If you can reach the BIOS, we can try a few things.

yes I know how to do that, lemme know what I can do and i'll try em all out!
Keep in mind though i am on a different computer than the one that is busted right now, so if I have to write anything down it all has to be hand written i guess
just something to note haha

Nothing too difficult. In the BIOS, go to the Exit settings and select Load Setup Defaults. Hit enter. Save, and exit.

Use a hard reset to resolve hardware and software issues which works for all computers, not just HP Pavilions (minus the HP driver update step).

If that does not work, use Advanced Boot Options to select Repair Your Computer and get to the System Recovery Options. Then select the command prompt. Do the following:
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:
.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
Windows has made corrections to the file system
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I realize you may only have one disk show up in Windows explorer, but you may have more than one disk through recovery options. This is because the system creates a hidden boot partition (which will be C: in recovery), you may have a recovery partition for your PC that is hidden (which will be D: in recovery), and you will have your primary Windows partition (which may be E: in recovery). A custom PC will likely have at least C: and D: to scan.
