Windows 7: Crashes in any form of recovery

Crashes in any form of recovery

I recently was fiddling with my graphics card for coin mining, moving them around, modding, etc. when windows decided to essentially shut down all services; aero stopped working, no internet, sound, even system restore wouldnt work naming a Volume Shadow Copy error (still wouldnt work after turning the service on). I actually had this same problem on another computer before and simply did a system restore through the boot up 'repair my computer' recovery tool.

However, this does not work for my desktop. The files load, I see the little green microsoft loading bar and even the first page of the blue background recovery screen only to have it crash a few seconds later. Computer just shuts off and turns right back on. This exact problem occurs even with a windows recovery disk. It seems as the problem persists through every form of recovery. I also tried all safe modes with successful booting but none allow for system restore.

Why is it doing this???

NOTE: When I was working with the graphics cards I did use a bootable usb drive with win98 dos. Both of my two graphics cards work fine individually yet using either the crashing problem continues.

I even just tried an old Symantec Recovery Disk 14 with exactly the same problem

Is there any way at all for you to grab some of the dump files from the crashes and post them here?
