Windows 7: Reinstall Problem

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Thanks for the ideas, but I'm really starting to think I'm looking at a mechanical failure of some kind. I tried this:

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
But during the "clean all" process it seemed to lock up. I knew this process takes a while but when the cursor stopped flashing and the CPU fan started going nuts I figured something was wrong.

The CPU fan had done this before, just got loud for 30 seconds and then went back to normal, but never repeatedly like it was doing now. I just checked it and it's pretty clean, and I hear that CPUs rarely fail, so I'm worried that this is all a motherboard issue. It was suggested to me to boot an Ubuntu live disc and see what happens. So I suppose I will try that next, but please let me know if you have other thoughts.
