Windows 7: Computer Restarts and freezes before install

10 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64bit
Computer Restarts and freezes before install

I got a new HD and windows7 home premium 64bit, when my computer starts up i get to the desktop, where the dialog box should come up where i pick my languange and begin install. This never appears and eventually my computer restarts and repeats until it freezes after the second or third restart. Anyone know how to solve this problem?

Update: I loaded fail safe defauls and now i can begin the install process but im still having the same problem with restarting and freezing seemingly randomly. I ran a memory diagnostic and did not find any problems.

Please fill out your System Specs in bottom left of post.

Try wiping the HD first before trying install to Active partition you create: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Next remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install. Then Swap RAM sticks. Test RAM using Memtest86 for 5-6 passes.

Unplug all peripherals and other HD's. Use PS2 keyboard and mouse.
