Windows 7: Win 7 RC to Final Problem

Win 7 RC to Final Problem

Today i was notified that Windows 7 RC has only 11 days to live. I backed up my stuff and went for an install with Win 7 Final Ultimate version. But the damn thing doesn't install.

Here is what i do:
- Put in the disc
- Reboot with CDROM as primary
- System boots with the CD
- I get a black screen with 'Windows is Loading Files...' screen with a loading bar
- After the loading completes, i get a 'Staring Windows' screen with Windows logo appearing on top of it
- It loads at the screen for a while , then i get a blank screen. A white cursor blinks up for half a second and the CDROM blips once but nothing happens after that. It's just a blank screen.

I had this problem while installing the RC, and at that time i defaulted my overclocking and it worked. I tried this time too but no go. I even removed 2 ram chips but still no go. I am stumped. I just don't know what the **** is the problem. There is only 11 days before Windows starts shutting in 2 hours. I can't format. This sucks, i am frustrated and i wanna throw this SOB pc out the ****ing window. ****, in the process i fused by low-noise cable for my back fan and had to resort to the loud-noise cable. Makes me feel like i am on a plane.

Help me guys before i go nuts.

Stripping off hardware did not work. Unplugging all wires did not work. Using one RAM did not work. Trying all my rams one by one did not work. Resetting CMOS to factory default did not work. My mind will stop working, too it seems.

Just have no idea what the hell is going on.

Maybe get a cheap video card to try. Make sure you are not connecting to a TV instead of a monitor.

This happens when the video card or tv tuner driver loads and it is outputted to a TV or projector. The monitor is suddenly cut off but unless the TV or projector is ready you get the blank monitor.

If this is not the case, I would try to install using a USB flash stick, or burn another DVD at 4x speed with Verify using ImgBurn which never fails.
