Use the Windows 7 DVD (provided in reinstall tutorial) System Recovery Options, open a Command Line to use the Bootrec.exe tool which is demonstrated most fully in Steps 1-3 here.
attrib bcd -s -h -r

Let my computer idle overnight. Woke up and my second monitor was in powersave mode, but my main monitor was not (it was on), it was hanging at a black screen and my keyboard and mouse were not doing anything to change it. Not sure if it shows up in a BSOD report.

Back up your files and wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command

Then Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Same steps for retail. Stick with the tools and methods given and you'll get and keep a perfect install.

About 4-5 hours into the reinstall, got an unexpected BSOD, weird buzzing sound from it and the BSOD hanged at
Collecting data for crash dump... Initializing disk for crash dump...
So I never got a dmp file out of it.
The BSOD was during a spyware scan.

Test your HD with maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by Disk Check if necessary from the installer's Command Line.

Next test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes or overnight.

Have you completed all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates with reboots. Are any devices still missing drivers in Device Manager?

100% updated, no missing drivers in Device Manager, no drivers with the yellow exclamation point, etc. I will try the two links.

Did you replace any drivers given by installer or Windows Updates besides Standard VGA display?

If you cannot locate a test for your hard drive - run the Hitachi DFT (for older systems designed for IDE drives - primarily XP and earlier) or the Seagate SeaTools (for newer systems designed for SATA drives - primarily Vista and later).

My primary drive is an SSD, will the Seagate SeaTools still work despite saying designed for newer SATA drives?

Edit: No, I didn't replace any drives other than my GTX 460 VGA.

I have not replaced any drivers.

The HD diagnostic passed with no errors, along with MEMTEST. Could the BSOD just have been bad luck? What was the error code on it, I had never seen it before compared to the other errors and BSODs I've had.
