Windows 7: Unshakable BSOD

I have 2 512mb ram sticks but I removed them each separately when I was following the hardware advice from the stopx124 thread.

I've tried loading windows 7 from a disc and from a usb and no success. I'll try my friends disc on Thursday if I can get over there. Is there any way to disable sptd.sys or uninstall hardware another way?

Daemon Tools is a known cause of BSOD with Windows 7. They use a file sptd.sys which is notorious of causing BSOD w/ Win 7. Remove DT and use this SPTD uninstaller to remove sptd.sys: DuplexSecure - Downloads
Select Uninstall; do not select reinstall

Use MagicDisc or PowerIso.

So should I put this on a USB and boot from it? I can't run the program from my desktop..

You may need to run it as an admin. Right click on the SPTD remover and click run as admin.

Is there anyway to wipe a harddrive outside the PC? I've heard using a magnet, any validity on that?

you can buy a usb drive mate. it allows you to hook up internal hard drives to an adapter which then plugs into a computers USB and it is mounted as a removable hard drive. you can then format it from there.

Do you have a Windows 7 Installation Disc? If you do, boot from the CD and you can format the HDD in the setup wizard.
