Windows 7: BSOD on start-up after re-installation of 7 Home Premium.

BSOD on start-up after re-installation of 7 Home Premium.

Hi guys.

I recently built my own computer from New Egg. I know a guy that works at an IT company here in town and he said he had a Windows 7 Pro key he could give me. I had already installed Home Premium and did the automatic upgrade to Windows Pro. I kept getting error messages saying the version wasn't valid, even did the key verification over the phone and I still got the error, so I did a fresh install of my Windows Home Premium and I've been getting BSODs ever since.

I did have my processor overclocked before I did the re-install, and I read that that could be the cause, so I reset the CMOS. I thought that doing that had fixed for a couple of days, but it has continued BSODing just about everytime I turn the computer on. It will BSOD 1-2 times, and then be fine.

Help is much appreciated
