Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install first.

Wipe the HD before trying install: re-install windows 7

If this fails make sure you have the latest BIOS update. If so, reset CMOS:

While in BIOS setup, set SATA controller to AHCI first to try install.

Test your RAM with memtest86 for 5-6 passes or overnight. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Here's the information on the wipe process, which is suggested and in a lot of cases a very necessary step.

After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media, use Step One of this tutorial at the link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive.
  • Then if you do not want to create the new Windows 7 "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #2 to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to do the installation to.
  • If you do want to create the "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #3 to create, format and mark Active the System Reserved partition and then create and format the 100GB partition to do the installation to.
Either way, running the "clean all" then creating and formatting the partition(s) using diskpart will get you the best possible space to do a clean install of Windows 7 to; you can always extend the Windows partition to include the remaining unallocated space on the HDD / SSD or create additional partitions after the installation completes if you choose.
