Yes, I've given you a half dozen questions and suggestions to which you failed to reply to a single one. Even when I ask you back whether you've tried them you fail to answer, but ask for more suggestions. This is an interactive process: we make suggestions and you either try them and report back or ask back for more information on how to proceed.

Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install. Test your RAM with memtest86 CD for 5-6 passes.

Update your BIOS. If latest, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS Set the SATA controller to AHCI to try install.

Test your HD using maker's diag/repair CD full scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities

Did you run the Win7 Upgrade advisor?

Did you follow the steps in my earlier post?

Check EVent Viewer>Admin view to google repeat errors text and ID# to resolve. Check also Performance Log on Advanced TOols page accessed by clicking WEI score link at Computer>Propertiies. Look for cued issues on Tools page and Generate a System Health Report.
