Windows 7: Reboot loop?

Reboot loop?

So I booted up my PC today and every single time it would get past the windows loading screen, a BSOD would flash on the screen for a split second and reboot. I tried booting into safe mode and that would not work either.

The next step I figured would be to format and do a clean install, but here's the thing... Windows didn't even recognize my partition! It has my other 2 HDDs but not my Windows 7 partition. The HDD in question shows up in BIOS, but not in Windows. So, should I just get a new HDD?

EDIT: Forgot to mention, but Startup Repair didn't help either, as it just hung/froze.

At first you try Startup Repair .

If you dont have the windows 7 installation disk, download Windows 7 System Recovery Disk to run it .

Post back the results .

I forgot to mention in my initial post that I tried Startup Repair but it kind of just hung/froze. I'll give it another shot, though.

Power off your computer , and open and replug your sata cables . Now power on, and try to have a startup repair .

I guess the situation : in the welcome screen it reboots ... and after a few reboots it freezes during the booting ... with the small lights ... before they are making the windows logo . If it is the situation ... the procedure should work . Add one thing ... clean the rams up .
