Windows 7: Series of BSODs now can't boot even in safe mode

I disconnected the SATA drive again which allowed me to access to the SSD via Windows Recovery Environment. I then ran a system restore but now it's just loading up to a black screen and mouse (before it reaches the login screen). I can boot in safe mode, just not sure where to go from here.

Easiest option would be to reinstall Windows, but you'll lose everything on the disk if you can't boot in normal mode.

Could you run sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt in safe mode.

I got it working again. We'll see how long for.

I would recommend a repair install, or at least a SFC scan.

Either the drive itself or the motherboard is going bad, or both, I suspect. Both are best tested through replacement.

Well, I waa trying to enter windows recovery environment via USB and it would often juat load to a cursor or not load advanced recovery options. Could that insicate motherboard?

I used memtest86 and got 4 passes, I also downloaded crystaldiskinfo that said my SSD was 93% good. Often when I get a BSOD my BIOS will stop recognising the SSD and I have to unplug the storage drive to get the SSD working. I am usually able to get it working again temporarily but BSODs end up coming back (7A seems to be the most common). I am trying to work out what I will need done before I sent it off to a technician because I don't have a lot of money.

The recommended minimum passes is 8 with the memory test.
