Windows 7: Laptop Blue screens!

Laptop Blue screens!

Ok i got one of those store bought laptops that comes with vista basic and a whole bunch of mess and non-needed partitions. So i decided to just install windows 7 over the top.

I started the install app, deleted all the partitions and created a new one using all the unallocated space. Then i installed windows 7 to the new partition.

It installed fine, booted for the first time, i was tired so i shut it down and went to bed.

The next morning i turned it on it looked like it was booting fine but then it went straight to start up repair, the start up repair went for about 30 minutes and said no solution could be found. I tried a couple more times, every time the start up repair would take longer to say the same thing, until it simply started blue screening shortly after "Starting Windows".

So i decided to try reinstalling over the top, i put the installation disk in started the setup it loaded files and said "Starting Windows" shortly after it blue screened.

So now i had no clue what was happening, i managed to get into start up repair somehow, don't remember, and got into command prompt, from there i formatted the partition deleting all files on the disk. I then tried to boot to check if the format was successful and it said no bootmgr etc was found, so i determined the hard-drive was now clean.

So i put the installation disk in and booted from it, same thing loaded files, "Starting Windows", blue screen. I have no clue what is going on here and would appreciate any help, i am beginning to think it is a hardware error og some sort.

BTW it is windows 7 build 7068.

I had a similar problem with my Acer laptop with 7068, which seems to have been solved with 7077. If you don't want to download 7077, you might try a fresh burn and install of the 7068 DVD and see if that does the trick. Also, builds 7048 and 7057 behaved well with the Acer. Good luck!
