I reformatted and tried to reinstall windows and it always gets stuck at the "registering components" part with 9 mins left. I replaced the CMOS battery today because i was told that may be the problem but its still doing the same thing. I have run out of ideas i really need some help. I also checked all of my hardware and its fine.

Have you tried using a different windows disk? But use your own product key

have you checked your RAM? 9 out of 10 times when a windows install fails it's RAM related

go here and follow the instructions to make a diagnostic disk. run the test for a few passes. it's probably a good idea to only test with one stick of ram in the machine at once (if you've got more than one) so you can accurately identify the failing module
