Windows 7: Constant BSOD (BCCode f4) after clean installation

Seems fine, I've been using safe mode all night and morning with no crashes at all. No other problems either.

Can you disconnect and reconnect all cables inside/outside of the computer, clean dust off (if there is any).

Download the OS version and Bit from the:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 link.

No dust, I keep it very clean, but I will reconnect internal and external cables. If that doesn't help anything, I'll post back after another clean install. (No such thing as factory reinstall for me, the PC is custom.) I tracked down my usual installation disc earlier this morning, and I will give that one a try just to rule out the possibility that something is wrong with the current one.

No such luck. Same bat crashes, same bat place. (Using my normal installation disc I've used for two years.) I took particular care with rehooking the HDD, and used a different connector the power supply. I also reversed the SATA cable, because who knows? I'd have tried replacing it as well if I had an extra one to spare.

Any other ideas? If the HDD isn't bad and there have been no hardware changes, I can't fathom why I'm getting BSOD problems on a clean install. Is it possible for my DVD drive to screw up an installation by not reading something correctly? It's ancient by PC standards at 9 years, and I could try installing windows from a flash drive.

A bad DVD reader may cause issues, try the USB install route. If the opto drive is 9 years old I would check on a new one, good ones can be had online for around $30 or so.

If you haven't done this, yank the GPU card and cables and put it back to make sure all is reseated properly.

MSI has a not so good track record in boards, I had personal experience. Newegg has your only 3 stars with over 400 reviews. Is it still under MSI waranty? You coulde consider giving them a shout.

Cherribomb, after completing Britton30's suggestions, I would try running memterst86+. Run it for 7 passes or until you see errors, which will take quite a while. It is usually best to run it overnight. When you did the clean install, what drivers did you install and where did you get them? Also, what other programs did you install? If Windows crashes on a complete clean install, it leads us to believe a hardware issue exists. Before running memtest, try running sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt. If it finds errors, it may require you to run it 3 seperate times with reboots in between. If you have not already done so, create a system repair disk from, control panel>backup your computer.left column is create a system repair disk.

muralasiva, it would be best for you to start your own thread in crashes and debugging after following the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html you will also need to be much more descriptive about your problem than just you are having BSODs.

Tried installing windows from flash drive. Same problem, so we can rule out the DVD drive I guess.

Tried re-seating the video card, didn't help. Sfc /scannow didn't encounter any problems. I will run the suggested memtest overnight.

@essenbe It started at a fresh install, if you had read my OP and other posts, I mentioned that I didn't even have time to install my chipset driver before the consistant BSOD starts. No drivers other than whatever default ones Windows 7 comes up with, no programs installed. No system repair disc needed, one of my windows discs has repair/recovery options built into it if I need them.

I could see the HDD or DVD drive having problems, because they're old. However everything else has been in use for 2 years at the oldest, and I ONLY started having problems after this clean windows install. I've done several other clean installs over these last 2 years, no problems. It's just hard to believe that something as crucual as my motherboard especially would be the problem, everything was perfect before I formatted..
