Windows 7: PC freezes when installing Win7. Hardware Q

Windows 7 64bit
PC freezes when installing Win7. Hardware Q

Hello all
Specs on profile

I am running an expired version of the Windows 7 Beta so I can still boot to windows... But I finally bought Win7 Pro 64bit and would like to get that going.
I am basically having a similar issues to this thread:

My computer freezes in the same spot when attempting to install Windows 7.
I now want to test my memory but I have a question. I will be using the latest version of memtest 86+ but my motherboard is a tri channel so should I test each stick on its own or all 3 together? Will it even boot with only 1 stick?

Also, if the ram turn out not to be bad, what can i do or install to make sure the processor is working correctly? As in all the cores working and such..

Thanks so much in advance. Oh and glad to be on the forums

With Memtest86+ you should test each stick separately and in each slot,you don't want it to boot to the system just the test program on the boot disc.

WHEA-Logger (W7 freezes/crashes) Hardware fault
This crash started out of the blue for no apparent reason. I generally find that leaving one side of my case open helps to keep my PC cooler than when the case is closed and sealed. I have the case closed atm. I did have a noisy PSU which was slightly respositioned but other than this I am sure...
