Windows goes to blue screen after installing anything - thedastardlyone - 11-18-2012

So I just setup my new computer as detailed below:

Asus 24xDVD±RW Drive DVD-RAM/±R/±RW 24x8x16x(DVD)

Barracuda 7200RPM 1 TB SATA 6 GB/s NCQ 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch

CPU INTEL|CORE I5 2500K 3.3G 6M R

PSU ROSEWILL | HIVE-550 550W

EVGA 01G-P3-1460-KR GeForce GTX 560

CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

MB BIOSTAR|TZ77XE3 Z77 LGA1155

The problem is that after I install windows 7 I can seem to install anything without the computer blue screening. The blue screen has said several things to me, such as check disk for hard ware corruption, internal cache errors, etc. I have re installed windows several times.

When I install drivers I start with the cd and update from them from there. I dont know if certain updates are ruining my hardrive or what is calling the problem. If I just install my computer clean, it doesn't seem to have a problem but once I install stuff it all goes array.

I am downloading the windows 7 from the internet and using a trial version until I can get this to work. Then I will validate it. I am not using trying to violate copyrights of any kind.

Any help?

If the drivers you are using are from a disk and you have problems after installing them, I would suggest getting the most current drivers from the manufacturer's websites. Alternately, let Windows 7 search for drivers on the Internet.

Also, are you installing programs not compatible with Windows 7?

I was only downloading steam, origin, and other programs from ninite. (microsoft essentials, 7zip, avast, etc.) But the computer will go to blue screen before that.

I can try letting windows search for drivers.
