Situation: built my computer, everything was working fine, when home for a weekend and when I came back to my dorm room my computer starting acting up, etc. slow, crashing constantly, you name it.
Fast forward - went out and got myself a legit copy of windows 7 and windows 8 through Microsoft bizspark for students, and burned them onto two seperate dvds. the problem is, i start the installer and it never manages to progress all the way through without crashing to a BSOD or freezing up and me having to restart it. i don't have any OS installed on it, as I formatted the harddrive in the install menu, but it just doesn't work now.
not sure what to do..very strange.
The current error is:
Ntfs.sys [page fault in nonpaged area]
STOP: 0x00000050 (plus a bunch of other jargon)
intel i5-2500k [never oc'ed it]
16GB ram, 4x4 sticks
ASROCK P67 Extreme4 mobo
GTX 460 gpu
yeah..PLEASE HELP!!! this is driving me absolutely nuts and stressing me out. I just want to be able to reinstall windows and its not working!
