What blue screen messages are you seeing? What OS came installed on the system?

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT a lot, and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I had windows 10 previously running well, then it crashed, couldn't start windows anymore, tried formatting and installing windows 7, then this problem started, can't install anything now, just bluescreens.

Have you tried Restoring Windows from a Recovery Partition?

Installation problems can sometimes be a consequence of a dodgy (potentially failing) RAM stick; or to poor connections with the RAM edge connectors and the socket. Presuming you have two or more sticks involved; try Derek's method for cleaning RAM connectors...

Remove both. Clean their edge contacts with a soft (pencil style ) eraser. Replace "one" stick firmly into its socket. Then remove it and re-install again into its socket. Do this two or three times so as to clean the internal connections on the socket.

Then try to install the OS.

If no joy (the OS won't install) repeat the above process with the another stick of RAM...

... And if that fails, either your CPU is failing on you, or the motherboard is busted.

The first step when Windows 10 crashed would be to find solution to that and determine if it was due to hardware or software. If you did not overwrite the original recovery partition then it should be possible to recover to that after eliminating the hardware issues (as above).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Tried this, with 2 ram sticks, still no joy :( there's probably something faulty with the mobo i'd say, since everything else works...

Assuming your CPU cooling is doing its job, the motherboard's probably faulty, yeah.

Could it be a bad cpu? ( Although it has been cleaned and i did put thermal paste on it recently...)

Unless you've explicitly tested it, we can't rule it out. Do you have a spare CPU of the same chipset sitting around? Also, are you sure you installed the CPU cooling correctly?

" can't install anything now, just bluescreens."
If you can get a bluescreen you should be able to enter the bios setup menu by pressing the Delete button or theF2 key during boot (or another key depending on the make of your motheroboad).

Can you get to the bios setup menu?

If you can get to the bios menu then its likely a software issue. In which case I would download the GParted live USB onto a USB stick. Switch to boot from USB in the bios setup and then boot from the USB. Using GParted you will then be able to format your hard drive (use the NTFS format for windows). Afterwards change the bios settings back to boot from your Windows installation media (disk), and it should install no problem providing the problem was not caused by faulty hardware.
