I have RMA'd the processor (phenom 9600 black edition 64 bit) but it still happens so i flashed the bios... still happening... tried putting the ram (2 sticks of ocz ddr2 1066 dual channel ram) in every differnet configuration possible... still getting BSOD. also, my mobo is an XFX nForce® 750a SLI Motherboard and my graphics card is an XFX GeForce 260 and i have tried taking out the video card but I still get the BSOD... I'm ready to RMA the MOBO but if I can resolve this without RMAing that would be great.

Re: Blue Screen Of Death
That would indicate that the hard drive is no good and either has a bad sector or needs to be replaced. Also before going out and buying yourself a new drive run the CHKDSK on the recovery console of the os disk. If that does not work trying reformatting. If it still does not work you will need to replace the drive.

Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so,the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
If this didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of blue screen

If you post your HTML result of the Windows 7 upgrade checker to this post I maybe be able to help you further.
If all this fails I suggest that you do a complete install of Windows 7 unless you just have the upgrade pack, please check that you are using the correct version for your PC either 32bit or 64bit as shown above.
When You Boot up your screen goes in to the windows xp loading bar and after a quick blue flashin screen pops up and it restarts unfortunately this is what they call the Blue Screen of Death so more than likely you harddrive with the os is corrupted so either you will need to reload the OS or by a new harddrive and load the Os on that Harddrive
