Windows 7: WMDT in Unending loop

WMDT in Unending loop

Was trying to troubleshoot my Radeon 5700 card 'cause it kept crashing while playing SWTOR. Thought I had it fixed until they took their servers down for maintenance and an upgrade. Now I have the same problem again. Also the Windows Device Manager shows one driver version & date and AMD's CCC shows a different version & date.

Had restored to an earlier restore point and had not re-updated the Windows yet. Decided to update and do a memory check on reboot. Now the WMDT has been cycling through about 10 hours. Tried removing, switching, and re-adding the memory sticks, hdd, graphics card, & power supply but didn't matter. Tried changing boot-up to disk first then realized i have misplaced my recovery disks. Tried F9 System Recovery but it keeps going into the memory testing.

PC is an Asus CG Series. Don't have access to be able to print out the specs for you 'cause it won't boot-up. Bought the PC last year from Best Buy and had them upgrade the graphics card and power supply (1200w). Any help would be Greatly Appreciated.
Gotta go to work, will check this thread late tonight.

I have four options when booting up:
DEL = enter Setup (no option for booting into Safe Mode)
F8 = BBS POPUP (no option for booting into Safe Mode)
F9 = System Recovery (does not work, goes back to the WMDT)
Alt F2 = ASUS EZ Flash 2 (looked at it but didn't see anything useful)

DEL = enter setup
reset All values to Default
F10 save changes & exit
it enters WMDT
ctrl alt del
DEL = enter setup
ESC without saving any changes
boots up normally
don't ask 'cause I've got No Idea!

First, backup your stuff. There's no telling if this won't happen again - and if it does, you may not be able to get back into Windows.

Create a System Repair disk. Go to Start...All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair disc
Dunno if it'll help with Asus System Recovery, but it'll help if there's corruption in the bootup sequence files.
No need to run those just yet - start with the tests in the next paragraph (the first 3 are bootable and don't need Windows).

After that, start with the free diagnostics here: Hardware Diags
At work we run the first 3 on every system that we take in for service.
