For RAM, see here: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

For hard drive, use SeaTools.

Also, try a repair install.
For the testing of the RAM, I installed the software but it did not boot upon restart. How do I go into the BIOS and change the USB drive to be the first to boot?

Tap whatever button it is to "enter setup" during the initial POST. It is usually F2, but I have also seen F12 and Delete.

I tested my hard drive and memory and neither had problems. I purchased my Win 7 key online so I don't believe I am able to perform a repair install.

Do you still have the installation files you used to install Windows 7? If so, we can work out a way to do a repair install.

Yes I do. Could I do a complete clean install with that?

You could, if you burned them to a DVD first. However, if you can get to the setup.exe file found in the installation media, you can run a repair install from Windows.
