  1. Ok, so now I'm trying to re-install windows but this BSOD always comes up its the error

    *** Stop: 0x0000007f (0x0000000D, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000,)

    And there is no way I could access my mini dump files since windows isn't even installed.

    Any help appreciated, if you guys can't help I'll call Technical Support on Monday.

    Thanks

    When I read your post memory corruption came to mind and the description of your error code at least confirms the suspicion that you should test your RAM.

    0x0000007F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP
    One of three types of problems occurred in kernel-mode: (1) Hardware failures. (2) Software problems. (3) A bound trap (i.e., a condition that the kernel is not allowed to have or intercept). Hardware failures are the most common cause and, of these, memory hardware failures are the most common.

    I suggest running Memtest on your RAM. The good thing is this test kicks in right after you boot up and takes over. Keep in mind this takes a long time and needs to run for a minimum of 7 Passes; there are 8 individual tests per Pass.
