Blue Screen Problem

Long story short, me and my cousin built identical PCs in 2007. I am using parts from both PCs to put together a backup PC for me, but I am getting the blue screen when I try to install Windows 7. I tried switching GPUs, but still get the message. The first couple blue screens said "PFN_LIST_Corrupt", but now it is saying "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION". First of all, I had to spend a couple hours straightening pins in my CPU, but finally, and very luckily, got it to work in my mobo. I'm using an old HDD...could this cause the problem?

Here are my system specs below:

Case - RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case With 500W Power Supply
Mobo - ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard (I have a backup - identical)
GPU - EVGA 640-P2-N829-A1 GeForce 8800GTS 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card (I have a backup - identical)
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz Socket AM2 125W Dual-Core Processor ADX6000CZBOX
RAM - CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096- (I'm using 8GB cause I took his RAM out - identical)
HDD - Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
DVD - Lite-On iHAS324

Hello

This could be caused by corrupt drivers with your GPU and not your HDD.......

I would suggest that you find the drivers for your GPU's and re-install them

I actually think I found the problem. I never even had a chance to install drivers b/c I couldn't get Windows 7 installed yet.

But, I ran a memory diagnostics and got errors the first time with all 4 chips in. I tested 1 at a time and got no errors, then put all 4 in again, and got no errors again. I am assuming that one of them wasn't quite in the socket all the way which caused the errors...is this possible?

Anyways, I now have Windows 7 installed and haven't had the blue screen since.

Ok then you need to test each stick one at a time and in different slots...
