Hi wmm49,

You may try reseating the memory and the optical drive and then try performing re-installation of windows.

If the issue persists even when windows installation is successful, hard drive needs replacement to isolate the issue.

Thanks & Regards

Try/borrow another monitor.

If an laptop, use a plug in USB type. Try all your USB ports.

Before reseating RAM clean edge connectors with a pencil eraser.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
