Unable to get past "Starting Windows" after BSOD

Urgent help needed please…
Hi built this system back in February / March this year and it has been running fine until a couple of weeks back whilst just viewing a web page and not even touching the mouse I suddenly got a BSOD now not sure if this is relevant but I had been on holiday for 2 weeks before and remember when powering down the day before it had a lot of updates to install before shutting down.
Unable to get it to boot although I did manage to get into safe mode once and did a system restore and it ran for 90 minutes before another BSOD so I thought I would do a fresh install but it only goes as far as
Press any key to load from DVD/CD then “loading files” and then “starting windows” and the BSOD again.

Now I have been around computers since the ZX81 days but have been unable to sort this problem, first I thought the mobo had gone down and change it to an Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 but still the same BSOD.
Changed out the SSD for a Samsung 840 EVO but still the same.
Now I have just tried an AMD Phenom II x4 965 but still the same.
I have also pressed the memory check button on the mobo and all ok, I have also changed the sata cables.
I have removed 2 of the graphics cards so now only running on one (I have also tried each of the others).
Thinking it was virus as if I left it after the “press any key to load” It came up with bootmgr missing which is why I fitted a new SSD.
Now I am sure everything is set ok in the bios but I may have missed something obvious so please tell me.
Could it be the CD disc which is a Dell win7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit reinstallation DVD

The desktop system I have recently built consist of the following...
(I run 5 screens hence the need for 3 GPU’s)
Running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-Bit as supplied by Dell
Fractal Define R4 Titanium case
Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 now changed to Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
AMD FX8350 8 core processor now changed to AMD Phenom II x4 965
16GB of Cosair Vengeance ram
OCZ ZT750W 750w power supply
Kingston 128GB SSD now replaced with an Samsung 840 EVO
1TB WD Caviar Blue hard drive
2 more drive to be fitted asap
3x Asus Nvida GeForce GT630's GPU's
Corsair Hydro H100i liquid cooler
2x 120m cooling fan for above
3x 140m cooling case fans
500GB Maxtor USB back up hard drive

One more thing one of the BSOD error codes 0x0000007E but just tried another win7 disc and got a different code 0x00000050 and says PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA

I think I have read all I can in Google and watch loads of youtube vids.
Any help would be most appreciated as this has been going on for 2 weeks now.
Thanks for reading all of this…

Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
So it may be memory (RAM) or any driver/software.

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.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Boot to System Recovery Options . Try Safe Mode with Command Prompt. In the command prompt .... enter the command ....

start msconfig


It will open the system configuration window, with the "general" tab selected.
  • Click the "startup" tab. Click "Disable all" > Apply > OK.
  • Click on "services" tab. Check the "Hide all Microsoft Services"; Click "Disable all" > Apply > OK
Then try to boot again normally. Is it failing still?

If so, boot to System Recovery Options once again. Try Enable Boot Logging. It will create a file named ntbtlog.txt. Collect it and upload it. If you cannot do it within windows, Boot with a live Linux disc and collect it in a USB stick, use the usb stick in another computer and upload it. It is necessary.

Also try to boot with the GPU unplugged. Does it work?

Let us know.
