Windows 7: Running fine, then restarted, and BSOD on windows loading screen

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
Running fine, then restarted, and BSOD on windows loading screen

Hi there!
I am a first time poster on here, but have skimmed the forums for a while.
Well I will get right to it. Its a desktop I built about 4 mths ago. I was goofing off all day, ran perfect. I got my package from, yay new memory. I also bought a drawing tablet that came w/ photoshop ele 8 and artrage. I promptly shut down my system, installed the new stick of matching memory, Corsair DDR3 4g 1600mhz, in slot two and four, with the old stick. I was only running one stick due to an order error. I reboot. The system recognizes it, runs fine. I install photoshop ele 8 and art rage along with an update to java. So far no problems. I turn the system off to plug in the drawing tablet per the instructions it came with. When it goes to reboot, i get to the windows loading screen, the animation just starts to load when i get a flash BSOD then the moniter shuts off to no signal and the computer just sits there fans and all running.
I am using Win 7 home premium 64.
I can get into BIOS. I have run the launch repair. I have tried putting the memory back to the previous configuration. I have run the memory diagnostic tool. I have tried system restore but no points to restore. I have tried to repair install with Windows disc, says disc is incompatible with current version, its the same disc i used to install windows the first time. I have tried to reinstall windows twice, still does it. I have attempted to make a repair disc, didnt work. If you can tell me how to get dump files from this state i would be happy to do so.
If it helps at all i am using an SSD as my main hard disk, i have a second drive but there is nothing on it atm.
I am just at a loss, i know a good bit about computers but not far enough, lol. My desktop is my baby and i really wanna get it up and running again. Any help you guys can give me would be great and well appreciated.
Also i cannot boot in safe mode, options are just launch repair and launch normally.
Thanks so much in advance for everything,

Remove all external attached devices (such as the tablet)

Try these free, bootable diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
There aren't many SSD tools available, so you'll have to make do with what you can find for testing it.

Beyond that, try physically removing the SSD and installing Windows on the platter based hard drive (don't worry about activating/registering it - you probably won't need if for long (and if you do, you've got 30 days to activate it))

Advanced Boot Options
Now you can boot in "safe mode"
also try "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure" so you can see the BSOD longer!
