At this point you should not need the install disc in the drive anymore

After we get a working win7 going we need to check out some of your hardware to see if everything is okay. CPU-Z & Software Information for Windows are 2 good items to run some info tests.

Thanks i'll save those 2 files.
As of now, my comp has restarted 3 times in 15 mim intervals, but it keeps going back to the "windows staring up" screen then screen turns off. I think i'm not making any progress :/

Should i restart completely with the win7 disc and do a startup repair?


EDIT- just got "windows is starting up for first time use" but was in safe mode so it wouldnt "finish" went to start windows normally and got the normal start up with logo rhen usual blank screen

Wtf??

I start windows normally and it FINALLY goes to "setup is preparing for computers first use" but then reboots. When it reboots i hear a screachy sound come from within the case

What does this mean?

Does this MB have a VGA connector on it , on the back so you can connect to that & remove the graphics card from the computer completely. Do so when it is turned OFF !

According to your specs I believe this is your MB. I don't see an onboard video connector So now we need the Make & model of your video card to find the right drivers.
