Windows 7: Computer shuts off during installation

Computer shuts off during installation

Whilst installing Windows 7, my computer will get to the "Expanding Files" part, and it will shut down at around 27-31% every time.

- All of my drivers are up to date.
- I have a brand new PSU and an HDD in my computer.
- I have ran multiple stress test programs to find a flaw in my build, nothing.

I'm at a loss here.

What build are you using and did you obtain it legally?

Oh.. -laughs-

I meant build as in my computer. Not the Windows build; yes, it's legal.

I've got all of the files on my desktop in a folder with the setup ".exe" file.

Negative. Also, let me add, whilst my computer "shuts off", the LED's on my keyboard go off, the screen goes to a lost video state, aka, a black screen, but all of the fans still spin in my computer.. Such as the computer is on, but it's not. I don't understand why the video would randomly cut out at that point, which leads me to believe it's something else.

sounds like a non-compatable video driver.maybe uninstall it and let windows load it's own
