If you'd tried everything then you'd have a perfect Clean Reinstall which is the last resort in the steps I gave you.

If you don't want Ubuntu then boot the Win7 installer for your version provided and delete all partitions during install, follow the steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Then you'll know for sure it isn't the software and if probs continue we can focus on hardware.

Have you tested RAM for 5-6 passes minimum and HD extended CD test?

This time first wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command from installer's Command Line.
