I think you need to install ATI System Drivers for 7xx/8xx/SB7xx/SB8xx Series (except RS690, 740), version 8.947.0.0 dated 2012-09-20 from MSI Global ? Motherboard - 870-G45 .

What happens if you try to boot the computer normally? Can you follow it:

I'll be going through that tonight or tomorrow, work has finally let up. For normal booting or any booting it usually loads a certain amount and then starts right over like I just turned it on or gets far enough to blue screen.

I don't get how it booted to 2 cds but not my windows disc...

Also Arc thanks for the help, you've been amazing keeping up with this too. Greatly appreciate the help and info, literally would not be this far without you!

So had a small miracle... Put my newer ram back in swapping the older stuff (I had been swapping back and fourth, idk why but it seemed to work) and I pulled the CMOS battery... And I'm in! Going to get that driver.

So you are using a RAM mixture here?

Use only one set of RAM. Either the old one or the new one. If you use two RAM sticks at a time which are different, all sort of trouble is expected.

Use the new RAM only and let us know how it is working.

Yes I had a ram mixture of 2 four gigs and 2 two gigs. I'm learning through experience that this was a very bad idea... Though all the issues I've been having I have only used 1 set of ram.

Also I got the suggested drive from you installed. Will be making sure everything is good here soon.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

First run it with all the existing/installed RAM modules. If it comes with no error, all is good.

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

This was actually a test I ran before posting here and forgot to mention. I did run this and all came back just fine, even with the 2 different ram types. It just seems to work better not running the 2 together though.

My newest update:

After adding the driver Arc mentioned I'm seeing no change. Really seems like something is wrong in the boot loader or boot loader kernel. I've read that this may be able to be repaired if I can boot to a disc or usb version of my windows 7 professional disc.

As its loading the files (disc and usb flash drive do this) everything goes well until it gets to the windows loading screen, that lasts about 2 seconds and it blue screens. I don't get how its blue screening if it is booting to a disc or usb?

It has booted a few times by moving ram around and/or popping out the CMOS battery. The other thing that happens is the CMOS checksum will go bad messing up my boot order. To add to it the usb flash drive sometimes says its bad and moves on to booting to disc

my boot order for that was, usb, disc drive, ssd (windows 7 here), hdd (just storage)

removing the storage hdd doesn't seem to have any effect.

At this point I'm considering just getting on to the storage hdd one time and moving whatever I need and wiping it. Unless anyone has any ideas that's probably 1-2 days out.

I followed all that I could on the list, I think there was one thing I wasn't too sure how to do. Anyways, I decided to just clean install windows, after many attempts spent trying to get the cd to boot (it would freeze or bsod) it is finally going right now.

It is STILL blue screening though... I deleted the hard drive partitions and it began installing. After the first restart a blue screen flashes for an instant and it reboots, repeatedly. So I'm not even able to get a regular windows boot just to finish installing...

I'm guessing the mobo is fried? I'm going to attempt swapping the 2 2 gig sticks in and see what happens. For the most part it has disliked that though.

Again thanks Arc for the help, sorry for my slow responses too!
