Why does my computer crash after trying to load Windows 7?

Question by : Why does my computer crash after trying to load Windows 7?
MoBo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Processor: Intel i3 3220
PSU: 650W
HDD: Seagate 500gb
OS: Windows 7 – 32-bit

Im building the computer from scratch, so I am trying to load the OS.The UEFI Setup Utility is set to default w/ AHCI SATA mode. HDD is plugged into SATA2 (3 gb/s) connector, but every time I attempt to boot my computer it goes all the way through the “Windows Loading Files” screen and crashes loading the Windows Logo. The problem is most likely basic, fundamental configuration problems, but I have no idea where to start.

Thank You.

More details are needed. Is this crashing during install of windows 7, or after you have installed windows 7?

First thing, check your memory. If you have more than one RAM stick, try one stick at a time.
Secondly, did you put thermal paste on top of your cpu and on the bottom of your heatsink. Your system could be overheating?
Thirdly, if you are not running your bios on the default settings, than change it to the default settings as its better to get the system working properly first, and then tweak it for performance.
Try another SATA cable as well as the cable could be faulty.

In my experience, with building computers, its usually memory that is faulty and computer overheating, because you have forgotten to plug a fan in or put thermal paste on.

I would also recommend that you use arctic silver 5 thermal paste a thats way better thermal paste than the crappy thermal paste that comes with the cpu.

I will check later for updates on the question, as I would like to know how it all turns out, or you can email me. good luck
