When you boot to Safe mode you should have an option to use Safe Mode with networking, select this and you will have internet access.
My 4 year old Dell desktop has this function, yours should also.

Your computer is getting older, you need to check the temperatures, CPU, graphics card, motherboard, this will confirm the system's health.
Then test the hard drives, RAM, CPU, and Disk Check, only if the temperatures are in a safe range.

Just follow the good advice you have been getting.

Hey guys thanks for the extra help, i was able to update the Nforce drivers, but when i downloaded the latest Geforce drivers the pc BSOD's again.

Also Chkdsk doesnt work as it detects errors but when it tries to repair it bsod's.

Thanks Slartybart i will try to update the BIOS.

Update: I have come to the conclusion that the problem is the HDD, after weeks of messing around i decided to format the drive and re-install windows 7, i can boot into setup and can even format the hdd in question, but when i try to install Win 7 the pc BSOD's...

Does anyone have a different opinion, or maybe even a solution?

Thanks

Russ

If chkdsk fails with many errors, the HD might just be trashed.

See what HDDscan tells you - post the output (zip both the the html and related folder)

You have the other drive right? Can you boot from that or did you remove the OS when you got the newer drive? I would swap the drives, use the original as boot and the new larger for storage. Windows doesn't need that much space, 30 GB maybe. Applications and user data take up just as much or more (large video, lots of music - they can go on the 1TB drive).

See if BlueScreenView can tell you more about the crash.

You could try to schedule a boot chkdsk - should get around the BSOD.... I think - not sure I would bother with this unitl I tried other things.

If the drive crashed (physical damage to the heads / platters), invest in a new drive and re-install.

Hey Slarty thanks for the extra help.

I ran a HDd check and that failed also, so i have put in an RMA with western digital and they are going to replace it. I also ran a memtest and it returns a "memory data bus stress test failure", so i must have a dodgy stick of RAM aswell.

regarding the other drive, yes i wiped that when i got my new hdd and had just been using it for storage. i think for now i will try removing different sticks of RAM to see if that solves 1 issue, then i will install windows onto the spare drive as you suggested.

I'll start now and let you know how it goes.

Better to use memtest86+, it's much more reliable than Windows memtest.

Run memtest86+ for 7 full passes, with all RAM cards installed.
Best to run overnight as depending on the amount of RAM you have may take several hours.
If you get any errors you can stop the test.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Hey guys,

Sorry for the long wait, but its finally fixed (fingers crossed). i had ran the memtest and it finally completed showing that errors, so just to be certain i removed each stick in turn and low and behold the very last stick was the culprit.

Windows now boots as normal.

Again thank you to all involved and sorry it took so long, i will be positive repping you all.
